Employees made to clock out during shiftRegister Today!
- by Teenie_eenie Sep 10, '11I work at an endoscopy center in Louisiana with two physicians. On occassion there are gaps in between doctors where there are no patients scheduled. One of the physicians insisted that the employees clock out during this time. Can he legally do this?
- Sep 10, '11 by RubyRN,CHPNAre they required to be engaged in work activities or remain on the premesis?
- Sep 10, '11 by caliotter3If they are required to be on the premises, I do not see how this can legally be done. An inquiry with the local Labor Board seems to be in order.
- Sep 10, '11 by Teenie_eenieNot necessarily "required" to be engaged in work activities; however, there was work that needed to be done that could have been done during this time. Only the nurses were instructed to clock out; secretary was not.

If you're required to be there, you should certainly be paid to be there (regardless of whether or not there's work to do)...
