  • Altered time card by boss Connecticut


    I started working for a retail organization in southern CT about a year ago. I am non-exempt, and my offer letter states an hourly rate as well as an annual rate. Our work week is 37 1/2 hours, but as is true in places of this type are required to stay late and be there approx 30-40 minutes early. This has been a stated requirement. I, and my co-workers fill out time cards which are then routinely altered to to fit the 37 1/2 hours before they go to payroll. I need the job, and my co-workers say they hate it, but they too need their jobs so nobody wants to do anything. We each lose about 2-5 hours per week of pay which might not sound like a lot, but in the course of a year, it amounts to weeks of pay. Any thoughts on what I should do?

    CT is not my state, but if you are not being paid for all hours worked, the traditional solution would be filing a wage claim with state DOL.
