Belk breaking wage and hour laws, sleazy managers ignore select time card alerts

some associates were told they they were responsible for their own time cards, however if an employee forgot to clock out for a break it was immediately corrected by a manager (saving the company money and hours), when associates forgot to clock in or out for shifts (that would short the associates paycheck) it was not correted and ignored. wage and hour laws state that the employer is to ensure the employee if paid correctly for time worked, not the other way around. time clock errors and malfunctions are not the associates responsibility according to the wage and hour division. time card alerts at belk were corrected only if they were in belk's favor. two HR associates and two former managers are claiming they were told to do this with the hope the associates would not notice their paycheck being short, (thus saving the company money and allowing the manager to meet their store hours monthy or weekly quota which includes a yearly bonus).

i had an associate who could not clock in or out (cannot remember if her schedule was changed or if the time clock was down) but the manager took out an hour break for a five hour shift, and the associate never took a break, when she requested to be paid for her extra hour, the store manager said it would be on the following pay period. the store manager was trying to save $12 by cheating the associate our of one hour of pay, however, she would allow some associates to take a break and not clock out at all.

any store manager that is running the store just for her bonus is not looking out for the best interest of the store and associates, that bonus pay structure is causing lots of problems and causing managers to run their stores into the ground.
