Cheating me out of hours
Permalink   


On Sunday I worked from 12am to 9:05am. Someone typed in the computer that I clocked out at 6am. I punched in and out via time clock.... so how in the world does the computer say that I clocked out at 6am? Could this have been from a manager manually adjusting my hours, aka cheating me out of hours?

Did you clock out for a break around that time and forget to clock back in? Have a talk with the person who does payroll and see if they can figure out what happened. If not then have a talk with your union rep.

 No breaks taken. Just in at 12am, out at 9:05am. Then somehow 6am ends up being written in as my clock out time on the computer. I'm wondering if managers deliberately do stuff like this, hoping that no one notices. Seems too far-fetched to be a glitch.

They absolutely do things like that. I was a salaried mgr on a job and this one time I was doing pay roll my boss was over my shoulder telling me to round people's time back---by as much as 2 hrs / shift! When I refused she said she'd be happy to do it herself...and then replace me with someone who would 'play ball'.

 That's not only unethical, it's illegal.  It's called wage theft and can result in prison time in some cases.

 Sounds like you tried to steal time. Thief

 And that's why I wouldn't do it. As it was I didn't last at that job for very long, but I had no proof I cuda busted her out with on that occasion.

Should action be taken in this case? I mean, there are surveillance cameras scattered all around showing me clocking out at 9:05am that day.

Not only that, but unless you work the entire day alone, your co-workers are going to know what hours you worked. Get your evidence together and then go to the union. If it turns out your hours were tampered with, that person will be fired.

Question, how do you see what time you are recorded as clocking out? I've looked for something like that at haven't found it. Is it something you can only check on store computers?

Sounds like more of a thing for the Department of Labor for your state to be interested in. 

And VERY interested in.

The time clock didn't register all your punches. Always inquire punch after punching to make sure it recognized it. You can ask management to audit your punches and they can correct them. Kroger isn't cheating you out of pay you need to stop being a dumb @$$ and learn how to use a fu-cken time clock. 

You can also file a union grievance.
