It’s a wage violation to fail to pay for every hour worked. Employers violate this rule by not counting certain time as work, including:
• Time employees have to work “off the clock,” before clocking in or after clocking our for the day
• Meal or rest breaks that employees have to work through
• Required training programs and classes
• Travel time, and
• Waiting time the employee must spend on the employer’s premises.

Work time for which you must be paid includes all the time you must be on duty or at the workplace. However, courts have ruled that on-the-job time does not include the time employees spend washing themselves or changing clothes before or after work, unless a workplace requires specialized protective gear or other attire that is impractical to take off the premises. It also does not include time spent in a regular commute to the workplace.
