can my boss change my timesheet.?
Find answers to your legal question.





can my boss change my timesheet.?

i recently found out my boss is regally changing my and my colleagues time sheets without informing us. i work for a large company with over 40,000 employees each week we fill out our own time sheets with the hours we have been rostered to work and any overtime we have worked and sign them. when my monthly pay slip didn't show the overtime hours i had worked i contacted our pay bills dept who emailed me a copy of my time sheet they received from my boss. the time sheets had been altered , basically he has deducted 34 hours overtime, all of the 34 hours were completely genuine honestly worked hours. can anyone tell me is this even legal? and what i should do about it ? i work on a four week roster that totals 160 hours wich could be day or night shifts depending on the work load. the boss makes the roster and gives it to us one week before it starts it starts witch days we are to work and for how many hours. if we are neede to work longer than the rostered shift we have to stay untill yhe job is completed it is in our contract that they can make us stay for 4 hours overtime. also it is in our contract that if any of our rostered shifts is changed ie rostered to work a day shift but changed to work a night shift we are paid for both the day shift and night shift theese are all conditions that they brought in but when we book them on the time sheet the boss crosses it off with out informing us.

If this is the UK then what he's doing is seriously wrong - I suggest you keep a photocopy of your timesheet, submit it, then ask for a copy back as you did before. Take the two different versions and send them with a letter to your boss's boss saying that you are informing them of the problem, and raising a grievance. Check your staff handbook for a grievance procedure / policy first - although if it says to raise it with your boss first then it's ok to bypass this step and approach your boss's boss straight away. If you get no response within 28 days then you may wish to consider issuing an employment tribunal claim for unlawful deduction from wages. You can do this without losing your job, and it's free. The tribunal can order your employer to pay you back the wages you're owed, and it'll also flag up what your boss has been doing to his superiors. But remember to try the grievance route first and that your tribunal claim has to be made within three months of when you should have been paid.

It depends, I used to manage the attendance of about 400 employees, they used clock in cards to register the time they arrived/left and another system to register what jobs they did. Often employees would get a lift into work with their mates hours before they were due to start, they would hang about in the canteen until their official shift start time, however, sometimes when there was a shortage of manpower we'd get them to start work right away. When it came to payment, we'd take the time they actually started work or their rostered start and the rostered end of shift or the time th last job stopped. Our system was set to register any 'clock in' up to 30 minutes before required clock in time as being made at the required clock in time, so an employee who clocked in at 09:05 for a shift due to start at 09;30 would be paid automatically from 09:30, same for clock outs, if due at 17:00 and employee clocked out 17:20 he/she would be paid to 17:00. So these 'rounding' could account for the amended hours on your timesheets, if you're unhappy I'd suggest you contact your union right away.

Depends on your contracted employment terms and pay structure. He may be able to deny overtime - I've worked in places where overtime had to be authourized before hand. No authourization, no pay. But, the manager should be returning altered copies to you before they go to payroll. Then you can contest through legal or corporate channels if necessary. Discuss with your HR department what your legal options are (within the jurisdiction that you work) and what the corporate polices are. And check your employment contract.
