A WORKER was fuming when they realised their boss was changing their clock in time everyday behind their back – costing them more than an hour’s pay each week.
For months on end, the employee was none the wiser to their management’s sly antics – until they checked their time sheets.
The fed-up worker took to Reddit to tell of their shock at finding out they were being short-changed by their own boss.
“I’m losing 15 mins a day 5 days a week of clocked time because my boss is taking it from me,” the user, posting under the name BreadstickNick, wrote.
“When I trained for this job, they told us to clock in 10-15 mins early to set up all of your software for the day. So I clock in at 6:45 every morning to get logged in and open all my programs.
“Well a few weeks ago I was checking in ADP on my time sheet, and I noticed.. my clock in was getting adjusted to 7am every day.”
Outraged, the user said they decided to then start clocking in at bang on 7am to avoid “working for free”.
But their boss quickly cottoned on, and pushed the worker’s clock in time back 10 minutes to 7.10am.
“I’m losing over an hour of work every week for months now,” the user added.
“That’s cash down the drain.”
The post has received more than 900 comments, with many sympathising with the worker’s situation.
One wrote: “Just for perspective – 1.25 hours a week is 65 hour in a year.
“That’s over a week and a half’s pay you don’t get.
“I don’t know about you, but missing even one weeks pay would be detrimental to my personal financial well being.”
Another said: “Bet, this is DEFINITELY not just you! Your boss is taking you for a fool, time to show him how wrong he is!”
A third added: “This kind of thing really makes by blood boil.
“And what’s worse is that someone in management probably got a bonus for saving money.”
