  • IL - Time adjustments = $5 fee

    At my job, if an employee punches in at 9am and then is supposed to punch out at 5pm, but forgets to, he/she is charged five dollars because the payroll lady has to adjust the time. Is this legal?Also, anytime we make a mistake punching in or out, we are charged 5 dollars. We punch in on this computer. When we punch out for our breaks, we put in our password and punch out for break. When our 30mins is over, we punch back in. But if we forget to punch in, we are charged five dollars because the payroll lady has to adjust our time. How is this legal?

    No, it's not legal. I suggest you (and any of your coworkers who have been similarly fined) contact your State's Department of Labor and file a complaint.

      I also suggest that you stop "forgetting" to punch in and out. That would solve the whole problem.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
