Just an informal survey. What would you do if you knew one of your co workers was punching out, then coming back and doing her charting, all to avoid "getting in trouble" for too much overtime ?
I know she is doing this. I know that my boss knows she is doing this.
I work in a rehab unit night shift. 30 beds,2 nurses,12 hr shifts.
I brought this up to my unit manager-she told me "don't worry about it."
What would you do?
Unfortunately I'm not sure there is much that you can do.
Working off the clock is, however, a really bad practice....for reasons that other's have outlined on AN before. My only suggestion is to offer time management help so that she can get out on time--but, don't risk alienating her by being too pushy. If she is not receptive to help, well then, this is her problem. If she wants to work off the clock, that is her problem and she is the one taking the risks.
