Cleveland, Ohio Employee Benefits Lawyer | Can My Employer Change My Time Clock Hours?


Hey, everybody! Scott Perlmuter here today with Tittle & Perlmuter
to talk to you about wage and hour issues regarding minimum wage and overtime pay. It comes up in a lot of our cases, and that
is- employers changing clock in and clock out times of their employees. So, a lot of people call us up and ask, “Is
my employer allowed to change the times when I punch in and punch out on a timeclock?” Surprisingly, perhaps, the answer is sometimes
yes and sometimes no. So, let’s say for instance that you’re
supposed to clock out manually at the end of the day and you forget to do so, so it
looks like you’re working overnight until you come in the next day. In that situation, or situations that are
similar to that, your employer is allowed to change your timeclock records. And same situation would apply if there was
sometime during the day that you went on a break that’s longer than 30 minutes and
your employer knows that you’re not working, they can change your time records, potentially,
under those circumstances. That being said, in just about 100 percent
of the cases that we evaluate where employers HAVE changed time records, they did not follow
the law in doing so and they did so under circumstances that were illegal. So, if you have questions about your time
records and your employers adjustment of your time records, the best thing that you can
do is give me a call, 216-208-1522, we’ll talk through your issue and I can let you
know whether or not what your employer is doing in your situation complies with the
law. Also, if you want information about wage and
hour laws generally, and issues about time clock changing, you can visit one of our websites,
we have two websites that have information about these issues. One is overtimelawyersohio.com, the other
one is our main website, which is tittlelawfirm.com. Thank you very much!
