No more overtime for exempt.

Today Andy Rivers got rid of all overtime for exempt with a few exceptions. Have to gift the company 4 hours before they will pay you and managers need long term need. Effective 3-28-2015. Sure way of reducing staff.

Exciting new look! But does it let me use a carriage return to break up/format the text? If it does maybe I can read Guy Fawkes' ramblings more easily. If not, then this is just one block of text.

Hire and Layoff

Does anybody know why L3 and other companies do a layoff and still post jobs to hire at the same time. It just seems that even after they do a layoff L3 post job openings. Instead of transfering employees to other positions lay them off when there are open positions. This just seem rather confusing ... read more

HR is closely monitoring the time you spend away from your desk, comparing all L-3 CSW employees' activities to their time cards. They are pulling video from all buildings and auditing employee entrance and exit times, as well. If you're planning to go off campus for errands, lunch, or (hopefully) ... read more
