Underreporting Hours or Modifying Time Sheets
Some employers ask (or demand) that their employees underreport hours in order to avoid paying overtime. Even worse, some employers decide to change time records on their own.
Employees are legally required to be paid for all work performed that benefits the employer. If your employer asks or demands that you underreport your hours, they are in violation of the law and you are potentially owed backwages.
Encouraging the underreporting of hours, and falsification of time sheets is wage theft.
If an employer asks you to underreport your work hours, it is a violation of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Contact us today, and we can begin fighting for what you have rightfully earned.
