Companies Requiring Workers to Work Off the Clock
Getman, Sweeney & Dunn has handled numerous cases where workers are made to perform free work for the company, by working “off the clock.” In these cases, the lack of time records for the work does not prevent the claim from being brought successfully, as workers are permitted simply to testify about the full extent of the unpaid hours. However, as an aid to enforcement, the U.S. Department of Labor has now launched a new iPhone app to allow workers to record their work time on their smartphones.

Getman, Sweeney & Dunn would be happy to review these records for workers looking for quicker response than might be available through the US Department of Labor.
