  • Company I work for is editing the hours i work Texas

    I work for a fast food company, I have worked here of and on since january 2006, for a total of a little over 2 years.

    Every since I started working there, the owners of the store have had the manager editing the time clock to make the hours of what people work match what they have written on the schedule...that means...if you are scheduled to work, lets say, 30 hours, that you only get 30 hours.

    I have come in and clocked in 10 minutes early and left 10 minutes late to many times to count, and have finally gotten tired of this.

    I have have started taking copies of my clock out reciepts (which we are not supposed to do) in order to have proof of this.
    I just started today which is the first week of the pay period, and had to work 20 minutes more than what I was scheduled...and I guarantee that I will not get paid for it, the manager will go and edit it to make it look like I came in exactly at 4 pm and left at 9 pm...

    I work two jobs now and I am to tired to come in and work this and get ripped off for the pay, what can I do?

    Go to the Texas labor board.

      If you are not getting paid for all the time you work, you can file a wage claim with the Texas Workforce Commission.

      However; if you are working any unauthorized overtime, you can be disciplined up to & including being fired for doing so.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

        And in the meantime, if you are not already doing so, keep a manual record of your actual clock in/out times at home, not using the employer's time or equipment; a paper notebook and pen would be fine.

          I am not working overtime, and If I do not finish my assigned job i get written up, and that means I have to stay late often to do it, and not get paid for it.
          I will talk to someone about it, I wasnt sure who would be best to talk to, but I will try texas workforce.

            The Texas Workforce Commission IS the place where you would file a claim for unpaid overtime.

            We're assuming, of course, that you are nonexempt (generally speaking, paid on an hourly basis), otherwise you wouldn't be asking this question. Are we assuming correctly?

              Well I am paid hourly, but this isnt overtime work mostly. Most of it is them scheduling me for 30 hours of work for a week. Then if I come in early or leave late they will just edit that out and make it where i get exactly 30 hours a week.

                Ok, then unpaid regular wages. Doesn't make a difference; the TWC is where you go.
