Thank you, Larry. I was being paid hourly and was constantly asked to (or persuaded to) stay late and then when I got my paycheck, they declined my overtime even though I had clocked in and out with the puncher. I will definitely take your advice.
Go to your supervisor with the assumption that some mistake had been made and bookeeping apparently forgot to figure your overtime. If they refuse to make any changes, that is when you start asking questions, but nicely. A bad job is still a job.
I actually quit that job and have got a new one lined up (that pays much better and is reliable). Do you think there is anything to do about it now? Thanks again for all of your help!
Probably not unless you wanted to go to court. You could file a complaint with the wage and hour people in the U.S. Department of Labor that would put the person on notice. Might get you something. I do not know how much paperwork is involved.
