Employees are often required to work off the clock labor for their employers. Sometimes, the employees are required to clock out for a meal or rest break, despite the fact that the employees are in fact not taking a break; rather they are continuing to work without being paid. Other times, employees are required to attend mandatory training, attend mandatory meetings and/or phone conferences, though they are not paid for this work.
Are you spending time preparing for work, but not getting paid for that time?
Are you spending time closing down the store or office even though you have clocked out? Are you paid 1.5x your regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40hours in a workday or 40 hours in a workweek?
