  • Meeting pay

    I recently attended an all staff meeting at the restaurant I'm employed, although it was not specifically anounced as mandatory, I still sat thru it for 5 hrs. I have not seen payment in my check for this time, and it doesn't seem that I will. Can they do this?? Is it legal???

    Yes, the meeeting time must be paid. Time worked includes any time from which the employer derives a benefit, including meetings even if they're not mandatory.

    This assumes you are a non-exempt (hourly paid) employee. If you are in an exempt level position, you never need be paid more than your fixed salary no matter how many hours you work.
