Employer Required To Give Proof of Hours Worked?

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about print outs of hours:

Is it ok for your boss to refuse you a time card or any kind of print out for your hours worked?

Dear Wondering:

State laws vary regarding the way employers track hours worked. I suggest you go to the Internet and look up the department of labor for your state. Then, look for employer requirements. Or, there might be a search box where you could research it. Or, you may want to call the DOL in your state and ask about it. There are no requirements for time cards specifically, but some require some employers to provide a record of hours worked, along with the pay check, when employees are part-time or work sporadically.It’s important to note that many of those state regulations do not apply to small businesses, so your work may not come under the guidelines.
