Many employees work for their employers outside of just the normal hours for which they are typically paid. Working before shifts, after shifts, or bringing work home to be completed off the clock are all fairly common actions for employees in a wide range of different industries and positions.
However, many workers are not aware that they may be entitled to receive compensation for this extra effort. In fact, any employer aware of work activities performed off the clock by their employees is required to provide pay for these workers.
Legal Requirements For off-the-clock work
Whether required by the employer or not, the work that employees perform off the clock typically renders them eligible to receive financial compensation. Some common forms of this type of work include:
- Cleaning work stations
- Preparing tools
- Attending meetings/conferences/etc.
- Responding to company email
These and other important job tasks, when performed off the clock, may entitle an employee to receive additional pay.
