Minimum Wage or Off-the-Clock Violations
If an employee is required to perform any task off-the-clock, he/she may be entitled to damages as a result. There are laws that prohibit employers from requiring an employee to do the following without pay: (1) go through a search prior to entry; (2) drive to an offsite location; (3) dress in protective gear; (4) spend time waiting to be shuttled to a worksite; (5) attend meetings or training; or (6) perform similar tasks that benefit the employer, without compensation. This list is not all inclusive.
