    1. just started and am asked to arrive at 7:45am for the shift. I am seasonal and have a box truck. Daily I have to rearrange my truck for delivery and am putting in time prior to my allowed 8:50 clock in time. Is this correct? Do they want you there early, but you dont get paid or clock in when you arrive?
     
  2. You only get paid from your scheduled start time

    Do you know why they would enforce a 7:45 arrival then, but start time is 8:50? I am new to the game and trying to figure how to play
     
  4. I have no clue what they are doing. Sounds like someone us teyitr to screw you over.


    Maybe @FrigidFTSup can help

    They are getting over an hour of free labor from you from the sounds of it.

    Your management team are idiots. Call the UPS Help Line to anonymously report that seasonal drivers at your location are being told to work off the clock from 7:45AM-8:50 AM. Can also file a report online.

    See: UPS Helpline

    Clock in when you arrive, if they don’t let you, don’t work. It’s that simple. Not only are they screwing you out of money, but hiding possible DOT violations.

    And that’s before all the union stuff kicks in.

    I went straight to the hotline suggestion because this is a seasonal employee that can be let go for any reason. If I were OP I’d rather report it than do what a permanent employee would.

    Call up the labor board and ask what they think.

    No, the company simply suggest that you show up early to avoid any traffic problems and you will be ready to run your route. The company is looking out for your best interest and want you to succeed.

    If you get hurt while working off the clock... you might have no recourse. Protect yourself.

    He is a seasonal driver. He has no recourse on or off the clock.

    Yes seasonal, but also have to be in a safety meeting each morning prior to start that is off the clock as well. Is this how it is?

    The OP is still afforded the protection of workman's compensation.

    Have you even bothered asking the bosses you report to or did you just jump on here hoping we all know everything about your situation. Sounds like you are being told to report for the safety crap which, in that case, the managers would be inputting your time.

    Again, another good reason to be talking to your own people.

    I hear if you keep going in early and working off the clock it guarantees you a ft driver spot after seasonals done
