The answer to this question is yes.
Kelly Connect customer service specialists are entitled to receive overtime pay for minutes worked beyond 40 hours per week. Customer service specialist at Kelly Connect are often required to boot up their computer or read scripts before they are officially “on the clock”. Although this may only be an extra ten to fifteen minutes per day, it can add up to significant hours over weeks, months, or even years.
Kelly Connect customer service specialists are often denied overtime pay by management and told they are not entitled to overtime pay for these extra minutes each day. However, this is a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. In general, “hours worked” includes all time an employee must be on duty, including starting a computer to download work instructions, computer applications, reviewing scripts, work-related e-mails, and other job requirements.
