    Spoken exactly like some one who has never worked for an oil drilling company..

    I've seen it play out hundreds of times.. I've also seen people try to take them to court.. inevitably.. they lose.. again.. nobody helps them out on their claim.. then to top it off most of the time the people they try to drag into it inevitably go against them.. thus screwing them even more..

    Perhaps oil corps have an exception written into the law, idk. But I have read of companies getting sued and losing big time (millions) for years of back pay. And Ive also worked for more than one company that explicitly told employees to make sure they put any time they worked on the time card. In general - thats the law.

    The law is the law, but how often it's enforced is a different matter. Companies losing millions over stuff like this happens, but not as often as it should under the law.
    Nennius and Whulfgar like this.

    This is correct. The company I work for got hit for a 11 million USD settlement and agreed to raise the wages of all non new hire employees (Consent Order). Unless your company has something baked into law, they are just going hit with large fines and penalties.

    Yeah its really bad, if your team is 8 people and on average you're each puting in an extra 5 hours a week (from home or what ever) then you're actually doing 9 peoples worth of work and the company needs to hire someone. But if the manager doesn't know or realize the extra hours that are being done they might not even be aware another person is required. (or if the manager is a bad manager they know they need another person but don't do anything about it)

    OP can you change the name of this thread to something more suitable?
