  • Oklahoma Help Me! Did I do Wrong?

    My daughter 17 years old, on school night clocked out at 9:45pm, and they would not let her leave, until everyone left. So, she sat there, along with 3 others off the clock, while the manager, and one other worked. They said it was policy when the doors were locked at 9:00 that no one could leave until everyone leaves. It would be ok, if they paid her to sit there, but if she is not getting paid they should let her leave. So I went up to get her, she asked to leave, and the manager said that she would get fired if she let her leave. So, I had to call the police to get her out by 11:30. The Policeman was talking to the manager, as my daughter was listening along with others, the manager yeld at her, "you need to leave" She turned to me crying, because she feels she is in deep trouble over, what her mother did. She is very mad at me, because she believes that they are going to cut her hours, or make it so that she would quit. So, the others that were off the clock came out as well. and one was jumping for joy that she was free. I ask her how long have they been doing this. She said she had been working for a year, and she always had to stay, even if she was off the clock. I think this is wrong, can anyone tell me the laws for this........

    Off the Clock

    I believe that this would be considered illegal under federal law. Though she could use her time as she wished, she was not permitted to leave. This is called waiting time. I believe that your daughter should talk to the US Department of Labor. Their website is at: http://www.dol.gov/esa/regs/compliance/whd/whdfs22.htm

    By the way, I know this doesn't help, but I thought that I would let you know, my teenage son gets mad at me if I even laugh around his friends....typical teenage behavior.
