Taco Bell Employees are often required to double shifts and additional time before and after their scheduled shift. With the exception of some upper management positions, the fast food chain must pay overtime to workers who work more than forty hours a week. Employers often deny or unlawfully refuse to overtime pay by misclassifying the positions of the workers, requiring them to report to work early but not “punch the clock” until later, striking hours off time cards, or not paying them for work before the shift starts and after the employee punches out for the day. These are violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and can give rise to an overtime pay lawsuit.
