New Time Keeping System and Problems at 24 Hour Facilities
The KOSE office has been made aware that there are issues related to the new time keeping system, in particular at our 24 hour facilities.
You need to know that you must be paid for all hours worked. If any problems arise first contact your manager to fix the problem. If they do not fix it, contact HR and let them know. If they do not fix your issue or tell you that you were not clocked in correctly and they therefore are not going to pay you, contact a KOSE steward or the KOSE office. They must pay you for all hours worked, that is federal law. You may also contact the following;
Kansas City District Office
Remember if you donít let someone know, it canít be fixed.
