    How many full-time, temp, or cover drivers sort their own trucks off the clock before their shifts? Is doing so allowed? Or, do you trust your loader.

    One is too many. It is illegal to work off the clock and you could be subject to progressive discipline if caught.

    Anyone who was caught working in their package car before start time was subject to a noogie. Repeat offenders could expect up to and possibly a wedgie.

    I never had to worry about the consequences of working off the clock.

    The off-clock workers obviously don't care or are just clueless of the consequences if they get injured before their start time.

    Twist an ankle or get a finger or toe crushed then it's all on them.....no on-job comp and likely discipline.

    As long as you are injured at work you will be covered under workman's comp.

    If you get injured while working off the clock then you are screwed.

    I would agree with you. Hell--UPS fights all comp claims. If you get hurt off the clock they are for sure going to fight it.

    You would be covered but would have to fight about it.

    Not to mention if you damage anything off the clock your ass is toast.

    We had a couple driver's who would pass a football in the AM before we started, off the clock. One morning the one driver jammed/broke his finger. Workman's comp claim. On their property, they are responsible for your injury. We are no longer allowed to pass footballs on property.

    That must be why they took the archery range out of our building.
