    Can an agent of the employer physically change an employees timesheet if it is not correct based upon information received from computerized phone in system that is conflict with the employees timesheet.

    Your post has been moved to its own thread and a more appropriate forum.

    If the employee's timesheet is incorrect there is nothing illegal about the employer or his agent correcting it.
    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.

      Agreed. Also, the legal issue is not correcting the timesheet, it is paying non-exempt employees based on actual hours worked. Let's say that Jane (the employee) worked 40 hours last week per the timesheet, and the employer pays 40 hours. But Jane really worked 48 hours. The employer is legally wrong even though they paid the timesheet. Technically the timesheet requirement is on the employer, not the employee. Having been the person who often had to "change the timesheet", I would normally use red ink, an explanation, and my initials, but that was not a legal requirement per se. Just common sense, and a desire to not look like a complete idiot in court later.
