*Author of original report: and that's the problem.....
*UPDATE Employee: Maybe I am missing the point
*Author of original report: jeff, you are missing the point
*UPDATE Employee: That's not 100% true....
*Consumer Comment: MMM must be a union flunky...
My girlfriend works for a branch office. She is paid on a bi-weekly basis.
When overtime in ONE week is worked, the employees are required to NOT claim the hours for that week and to take "comp time" the following week(or later). This clearly violates M.G.L. c.151, s1A.
Sure it's only an hour or two here and there, but consider how much Sovereign POCKETS over the hundreds of MA employees. (bonuses for regional managers for saving money??)
Rise up Sovereign employees. I'm sure you, like her, are afraid of saying anything and losing your job(which would be illegal too in MA).
Don't shave your timesheet to save their spreadsheet. It is also illegal for you to agree to suppress the reporting of overtime. THEY HAVE TO PAY YOU OVERTIME WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT!!! Overtime is based on a forty-hour workweek NOT an 80 hour pay period.
From everything I've heard from her, YOU GUYS SHOULD UNIONIZE!!! think about it....put THEM in THEIR place for a change.
Use the link to get to the CEO's e-mail....send him a "love note"
