Won't Pay Overtime? Feds Descend Like a Sandy Koufax Fastball

I recently met with a potential client and we were discussing overtime. She said their company did not pay overtime because they would never approve it and that is their policy. I asked what would happen if someone accidentally worked 42 hours in one week. She said the overtime would not be approved by policy and they would get 42 hours of straight time pay.

Years ago I spoke with an unemployment judge who told me the following story…

The judge had just heard an unemployment case between an employer and a former employee who was fired because of 68 absences in a 10 month period. It sounds like it would have been a gross attendance problem and that the employer should have won the unemployment case.
