We do not want unions here. Let’s all band together and get the job done and worry about $$$$ later. Be grateful

If you are being asked to work off the clock I'm sure a local union would love to hear from you. A single employee has no alternative but to work off the clock & grin and bear it. 1000 employees in a Union get paid overtime.

UHG policy says that working off the clock is cause for termination. It is considered falsifying your time records (pay attention to the notice that pops up when you enter your time in HR Direct).
Not only are they breaking the law, they are instructing you to violate company policy.
There are so many productivity trackers/spyware on our computers, there will be evidence that you worked when you were off the clock. If you are monitored by Omega, do daily screenshots of your time worked before you log off for thre day, and save/print. Call department of labor to report it. Also you can ask for your boss to send you frequent updates on your productivity that is monitored by the various productivity trackers (Platfora, RealTime, etc). I have seen reports that managers get... they list everything you do, contents of emails, every website visited, how much time spent on each task, etc.
If needed, at some point a subpoena could demand IT records.

I'm working OT but getting paid to. It's illegal to not pay you for OT if you are hourly.

completely illegal, wage theft. Working off the clock is 100% illegal.

They do it in CRT claims. They call it flex time. Any “time” worked after your shift you can use it to come in late or leave early. Nobody in this company gives a #^*{} about employees

UHC is a billion dollar company whose CEO doubled his salary last year!! Yet they still want employees to work overtime and not get paid. That is illegal and you can file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Labor!!

We are in some tough times now. We need all hands on deck. Let’s all give a little extra for the cause. For the most part, folks are stepping and giving up weekends, and I appreciate. Especially those that are doing it off the clock and helping ups move forward. I was so pleased to see the progress while I’ve been away on vacation. I hope this continues and I will be very pleased when I come back in 3 weeks. Thank you all and let’s keep up the good work

It’s against the law to make you work “off the clock”. Find a way to make them respond in writing.... like send your boss and email that asks for clarification. (I.e. “I just want to make sure I understand you correctly. I’m not allowed to clock more then 40 hours BUT if I don’t get this done by EOB I need to work until it’s finished?). If they make comments in Jabber then copy and paste it in the email.

That happens everywhere even in hotels. They make people clock out but keep working. If you refuse, you will lose your job. Even as contractors, you are expected to get the job done even if you go over the 40 hours a week but you can't list those additional hours down because they are not approved overtime and if you do, your contract will come to an end. That is the new reality.

Wow, I’m sorry to hear this is happening. 🙁

I would start keeping track of your hours and then file with your local or state labor board as wage theft. If you feel it’s too risky to report now, keep a record on a personal device so you can report it later on or if you’re let go.
