Off-the-Clock Hours in Tennessee
Call Our Memphis Wage and Hour Lawyers Today
In some cases, employers unlawfully require employees to perform specific duties before or after their official work-periods. In other cases, employers fail to compensate employees for other work performed at the employer’s request during normal hours. However, because the Fair Labor Standards Act lays out a rigid definition of work, an employer that requires an employee to perform duties while off the clock and does not include that time in overtime calculation commits a form of wage theft against the employee.
If your employer has required you to spend a segment of your workday off the clock and has not compensated you for such work, we urge you to call our Memphis wage and hour lawyers.

Off-the-Clock Work According to the Wage and Hour Board
It is important employers carefully, accurately, and completely record the amount of hours employees work. When they fail to do so, employers risk violating the Fair Labor Standards Act, which requires employers to pay non-exempt employees at least 1.5 times their regulate pay rate for any hours worked over 40 hours in a single week.
Work hours can include any time an employee is required to be on duty, on the employer’s premises, or at any other prescribed place of or for work. This includes any time the employer allows, permits, or suffers the employee to work.
