Employees Not Paid for All Their Work Hours

Workers at Q3 Contracting didn't get paid for all the time they spent on their jobs because of the company's strict rules. This is not fair because when you work, you should be paid for all your time, not just some of it.

A worker named Richard Rael and others like him weren't paid properly by Q3 Contracting. They worked extra hours but didn't see those hours on their paychecks. This is a big problem because everyone needs their earned money to pay bills and buy what they need.

What Q3 Contracting's Policies Did to Workers

Q3 Contracting had a "ticket to ticket" rule. This meant workers had to clock in when they started a task and clock out when they finished. Sadly, they didn't get paid for the time between tasks, which could be long.

Also, Q3 gave meal breaks without pay, which is normal. But there was a problem. Workers couldn't really take a full break. They had to keep doing some work or stay ready during lunch. It was like they worked for free during break time. This wasn't fair and made people question how the company treated its employees.

Why This Policy Is a Problem

When a company doesn't pay employees for all the hours they work, it's not just wrong—it's illegal. In the US, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) has rules about how to pay workers. This includes minimum wage, overtime, and keeping records. So when Q3 Contracting didn't follow these rules, they broke federal law. This shows they were not responsible or honest.

Q3 Contracting ignored their employees' needs by not paying them for every hour worked. Companies should know that their workers are very important. They keep the business going. If you treat them badly, you could face legal trouble and harm your reputation. This problem at Q3 Contracting seems like a big issue with how they treat and pay their workers.

It's important to fix these wrongs. The workers who lost out need to get paid for their time and hard work. This also helps make sure all workers are treated fairly under the law. It reminds us that we must keep an eye on labor laws. And it tells workers to know their rights and speak up if someone breaks them.
