  • flex time, Kentucky

    For over ten years my company has had flexible start times from 6:00AM to 8:00AM. Recently all start times were changed to 7:00AM. I have asked that since I have a long drive, can I come in at 6:30 and leave at 3:00 (to avoid overtime). The only option I have been given is to go "part time" and lose 2.5 hours a week in pay.

    This seems a little unyielding, but is there anything wrong with this other than the obvious?

    Overtime paid employees are encouraged to come in early, but non-overtime are not allowed. Is this legal?

    Thanks

What does your long drive have to do with working overtime? I'd imagine flexing your start time has to do with avoiding traffic congestion.

    This seems a little unyielding, but is there anything wrong with this other than the obvious? It's legal for your employer to eliminate their flexible work schedule policy, if that's what you're asking.

    Overtime paid employees are encouraged to come in early, but non-overtime are not allowed. Is this legal? Sure.

      Right on both counts Beth.

      Both it doesn't seem logical (or legal) to offer to pay overtime
      than not pay it for the same amount of work.

      Thanks

      On another note, how 'bout heaping 2 more salaried positions on you after a layoff. None of which you were hired or know how to do?

      Thanks again!
