2 parts to this thread, if I may....
My husband and I have worked for a company active in the oil and gas industry in Wyoming for over a year. In that time, there were only 3 instances where our bi-monthly pay checks were correct. (Yes, only 3.) Our time is tracked by both the company for whom were are subcontracted out to and our employing company. How long does our employer have to get the corrected checks to us after being informed of their latest error? This past pay period, there were over 30 employees who were shorted, again. We're still waiting for back pay from '07 that "someone" is checking into. We are all required by them to have Direct Deposit or they won't pay until you do. That took 13 weeks for them to get taken care of.
Also, were are required to clock in for the contracting company as well as signing in and out on our company board. If we clock in at 4 minutes after the hour, 30 minutes is deducted. If we clock out prior to 24 minutes after the hour, 30 minutes is deducted. Is this legal?
Thanks for this moderating this forum. It's been an answer to a prayer.
