A district in the Eastern Region (one that I know of, but it may be wider spread) is ordering their employees to falsify their timecards! That's right - outright falsify. Now, they'll never admit that and they'll just call it "creative management" but what would you call this situation?: Management has been ordered to severely limit OT on Mondays and Saturdays or managers will receive warning letters. So managements response? They tell all of their people who work OT on Mondays and Saturdays to "Not mark the day as 'day off' on their timecard", but instead pick another day of the week to mark as 'day off'. Now the absolute absurdity of this or course is that most couriers only work 4-5 hours on Saturday. So they get to mark Wednesday as their day off and get 8-10 hours of OT! Good deal for the employees, but if FedEx feels that this is good business management then we'll all be out of a job in a year. So in order for station and district management to make themselves look compliant, they tell their employees to not mark their timecards correctly. They don't actually save any money (and in the case of Saturdays, actually spend more), but they are keeping themselves from getting fired. If that is not the company's definition of "falsification" I don't know what is. I asked a manager to put this directive in writing for me.... I'm sure there is no need to tell you how that went.
