    Hello, I'm a new hire. My supervisor asks us to come in an hour early and I don't think we get paid for it... when I clock in it'll say "Start time: 5:30" and it'll be 4:15. Then when I clock out, it says I worked an hour less than what I really did.

    Is this legal? What should I do? Feels like a kick in the ass.

    Check UPSers to see if he has adjusted your start time, and once your stub is online, make sure you got paid correctly, it not, file a grievance(assuming you are past your probationary days).

    Slavery ended over 150 years ago in this country. It's ILLEGAL for a company to not pay you for time worked....every minute.

    Check your pay stub to see if you're paid for the hours worked. Always tell people, the timecard system you use to punch in only transmits information to our timecard system, it doesn't receive.

    Though we'd probably save a ton of timecard adjustments if it did.

    Compare the hours you write down, with the hours shown on under time-card viewer. That viewer has this weeks and prior weeks punches.

    All good employees start at least an hour early.

    You may be entitled to time and a half for all time worked before scheduled start time. File the grievance for any and all hours they have shorted you. Also demand penalty pay if they don't pay up immediately. It's the only way they learn not to steel pay from employees.
  11. "My Hours 2.0" is a pretty good smartphone app for iPhone and Android for keeping track of your hours. Our punch in times are rarely set to the actual time that we start, but my hours always come up right come pay day. The app is a great back up just in case I ever do need evidence.

    When a supervisor asks you to start early they are agreeing to pay you from the time they wanted you to start early. As drivers we just change the scheduled start time in the diad. I would change you're scheduled start time on your punch in device. If the supervisor asks you to start at 4:00 instead of 5:00 and you say ok it's not going to be a big surprise if you do this. Don't punch in earlier than this and change the start time to before 4:00 though, that won't go over so well.

    Tell the sup you must be paid for all hours worked. If the sup is doing any work you need to grieve it immediately. IF he doesn't comply then grieve everything you can. Encourage all your co-workers to grieve everything too.

    That'll teach you to start a thread before you have all the facts.
