Employers are required to record the number of hours employees worked and pay them based on those hours worked. Many employers will have a punch clock or sign in sheet system, however, they will require employees to work “off the clock,” or more time than indicated on the records. For example employers will tell their employees to show up for work at 8:00am but tell them not to punch in until 9am, or to perform work after they already punched out. Employees who do off the clock work are entitled to pay for all of the hours they actually performed any work, including any overtime premiums. Additionally employers are required to pay employees for any necessary transportation time during work hours, and in certain circumstances for “on-call” time.
