Except for your lunch break, the law requires you to be compensated for all of the hours that you work.
This means, you should be paid for all of your hours at work, regardless of what you are doing.
The strongest unpaid wages cases typically involve:
- Managers asking employees to clock out and keep working.
- Time spent getting ready for your scheduled shift to start (including booting up the computer, doing paperwork, and returning phone calls; drivers preparing a vehicle).
- Time spent wrapping up loose ends at the end of the day.
- Filling out timesheets and completing other paperwork.
- Responding to emails, text messages, or phone calls from home or on a mobile device.
