If a manager is not paying you for the overtime, start leaving early and you will get paid.

Do you realise that a business would lose customers and thus a good profit if staff stopped working overtime? A former employee of a significant phone firm made a post on Reddit. In his department, OP shared employment with three other people. One day, none of the three of them were in the office, so OP took on their respective responsibilities. He didn’t even take advantage of his two breaks. The boss told him he could not sanction overtime but that he may leave an hour early on Friday when he presented him with his timesheet and informed him that he had worked 9 hours. Agreed, OP Two of the employees were not present on Friday, and the third left early for an interview. The OP received an expensive order for a T3. The OP informed the client that the night shift worker would handle the overtime request since management did not approve of it. After clocking out, OP received a call from management informing him that overtime was allowed, but instead of listening to them, OP chose to head home. To read the complete story, scroll down.
