Thinking On the Dock of the Pay


I have already blogged once about Undercover Boss, but I thought it would be helpful to flesh out just why the pay-docking incident in the first episode stuck in my head. In that episode a (well-meaning?) manager of Waste Management, Inc. docked employee pay two minutes for every minute of late arrival after lunch.

Payroll docking violates most state payroll laws (it is considered an unlawful forfeiture), including North Carolina. Here, deductions in pay must be agreed to (in writing) in advance.

Please see full article below for more information.
