I work at a Credit Union. We have meetings that we are required to go to after working hours. Workings hours are 7:45am-6:15pm. The meetings usually last an hour, and sometimes start at 6:30pm or 7:00pm. During weeks that we have our mandatory meetings, the Credit Union forces us to take an hour off of that week. For example, if my shift for that week is supposed to be from 8-3, and we have a meeting that week, then our supervisor will require us to take an hour off by telling us to come in and hour late, or to leave an hour early. So, in a round about way, it seems that we are not being paid for that hour that we just had the meeting. We have questioned this before, and they tell us that the Credit Union is run by different laws. Is this true? Is what they're doing illegal?
