Missing Overtime

07 Jun 2019, 19:48

Been seeing an increase in instances of O/T missing from my pay. Not huge amounts, less than half an hour here and there.
The question is are the screws allowed to not pay/deduct pay from you without informing you?
If so are they supposed to tell you prior to any deductions?
Lastly if they're deducting/not paying due to a swings and roundabouts scenario, can they use early finishes from the previous week? If I finish early (not often and rarely more than 15 minutes) I don't claim for small amounts of time I work over so they've already had their go on ALL the swings, roundabouts, slides and monkey bars.

Just want to cover my arse before I go and make an utter tit end of myself.

There is never any way of relating which overtime payment relates to which day earned on the payslip. Designed to obfuscate. Very sloppy from RM compared to all the GPS fixes they stick on us!

Walk in to the office and ask for an explanation.

Happens to me every few weeks. I just claim the amount as belated on the sheet.

I'm convinced this is deliberate by managers to reduce the spend on overtime.
My overtime was ALWAYS wrong, usually by anything from 5 minutes to about 12 minutes, always underpaid, never overpaid.
When confronted they put it down to an "error" when it was being counted up.
I believe it was done on purpose hoping people wouldn't complain about a few minutes missing. But if you add up a few minutes off everyone in an office it soon adds up.
Funny enough it doesn't happen anymore to me after I told them if I was even a minute short I wouldn't be doing any overtime until it was paid.

Thanks all for the input. It's not a question of cutting off,I'm afraid it's beyond that. The c***s have stiffed me and others and I want someone held accountable for it and shown in no uncertain terms they are NOT going to get away with it. Hence the questions so I can counter some of the bullshit they'll try and cover their collective arses with.

As far as I know there's no local agreement to any of the above, just that they've been getting away with it.

If you know you are going to go over you are supposed to get their agreement to pay the overtime because they may have other resource to get the extra done.
If theyve agreed to the overtime then you should be paid it.
If you mis judge and realise you will have to go over ring them and ask if they will pay you or should you bring it back?
They will soon pay you.

The swings and roundabouts thing is a load of crap. If you finish early it is their responsibility to find you work to fulfill your contracted hours.

Thanks Dante
They tried this horseshit a couple of times previously. Made you queue up to run the gauntlet of the Dom giving you withering looks and the Lino dishing out disparaging remarks. Never lasted more than a couple of days.
