My boss secretly changed my timesheet to make me work overtime

AN UPSET bloke explained that his boss updated his timesheet to remove the overtime because they didn’t want to pay him more.

The disgruntled employee says he only goes through five or ten minutes at a time but his employer doesn’t want to pass on the bill, which last year only paid £110 more than this annual salary.

Taken to Reddit, the man said he thought these actions might be wage theft but was unsure if he should do something about it.

“My boss painstakingly edits my time card to remove 10-20 minutes of overtime that happens occasionally during my week,” he says.

“My boss told me they would do this because ‘we know your actual job doesn’t fill 100% of your day, so you have a lot of downtime and you shouldn’t overdo it. 40 hours”.


“But sometimes it’s more than five minutes for me one day, more than ten minutes the next day because something missed my lunch or the email response took a few minutes after 4 p.m. or the system the time card loads too slow it takes six minutes for the clock to time out.

“It’s legal working time, but it’s only a few minutes a week and they’re trying to be strictly about 40 hours.

“I even looked at my payroll for 2021 and it only comes up to about $150 overtime for the whole year. If they need $150 and it sucks they can have it.

“My boss easily makes twice what I do in a year and 80% of my department is paid, so it’s nothing like having my bosses headache over $150.

“I’m 60% sure this counts as salary theft but I’m not sure it’s worth going that route.”

Redditors members quickly started thinking about the situation.

One said: “It’s wage theft and your boss is an idiot to think that they can only decide what to do and not count as work when you work, and therefore can deduct whatever they want to avoid paying overtime due. Legally, they can’t, so report them.”

While another said: “Stop working for those minutes. Just put down your pen (or hammer, or whatever your tool is) and walk away. Never work for free.”

And a third said: “They’ll keep stealing it until someone reports it and they’re in trouble.”
