If your place of business uses a digital time tracking system to record your hours, it’s possible that you are losing wages. This practice is called wage theft and some workers affected work in healthcare, work as drivers, work in food service, or work in factories. A report out of the Economic Policy Institute estimated that as much as $15 billion in wages are stolen every year.
There are three ways that wage theft can occur using this digital time tracking system: Rounding (altering clock-in and clock-out times to coincide with predetermined increments); automatic deductions from lunch breaks or other breaks, regardless of whether a break was taken; and time shaving, where a manager manipulates the time records to match a lower number of hours than those worked.
