  • WI-Taking bank deposits off the clock

    Is it legal in WI for an employer to make employees take large amounts of $ to the bank during their breaks, or when they're punched out for the day? Thank you in advance!

    I don't know if you're asking whether it's legal to have an employee carry a large amount of company cash around (yes) or whether you're asking if it's legal not to pay for the time (no.)

      We don't have a problem taking the money to the bank when we're on the clock. We're concerned as to who would be responsible if we would be in a car accident or if the money was stolen. We are getting irritated not being paid for our time to go to the bank. it happens everyday, We punch out to go home, and it's "take a deposit on your way". Thank you for your help!!

        If you are doing business for the company, it's work time and it needs to be paid. If you're working, then it's not a break; and after you've clocked out, it's still work.
        I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

          Thank you! Any suggestions how we should handle this? If we refuse, we'll be treated like the scum at the bottom of the bucket. Thank you again!

            Refusing is not a good idea.

            How reasonable is your boss? You might mention that you stumbled across some info on the internet that strongly suggests that this time needs to be paid and suggest the boss do some research of his or her own. Failing that or if the boss refuses, then your next step is to file a complaint with your State's Department of Labor.
