The company I just left would automatically clock us out for lunch whether we were able to leave for lunch or not. Everyday we would be docked 30 minutes, but as a mortgage lender, it was often not feasible to leave our desks for lunch due to high volume and insufficient staffing. Do they owe their employees compensation for this practice?

Thank you for your time.

    • Assuming that you are a Non-Exempt employee (someone who is paid overtime) you are owed for actual time worked. Exempt employees (someone is not paid overtime) are mostly paid under a different set of rules.
