Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provided you with Excellent Service, Thank you for your question,
First, please contact customer service at [email protected] to let them know that you are not interested. I am not tying to "pass the buck", but the Experts here do not have access to any customer's information, or access to any customer's accounts, so I apologize for not being able to help you in that regard,
The Fair Labor Standards Act and the Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division provides that if an employee is paid on an hourly basis, then the employer is required to pay his employees a straight hourly wage for the first 40 hours and to pay employees overtime equal to one and on-half (1 1/2) of their regular hourly wage if they work over 40 hours in any work week.
If you kept records of the date you were called to go and check the alarm, and to go to the post office and how long it took you, including your travel time, then you can present those hours to your employer and ask that you be paid for that time. It might be a source of misunderstanding if the employer was asking you to do a favor in checking the alarm and going to the post office. That would depend on your relationship with your employer. But, in order to prevent any future misunderstandings, you might want to mention this to your employer and say that you are keeping an accurate account by date and time for these trips and would like to be paid.
