Virtual time clock Our law firm is currently investigating claims on behalf of current and former employees of Waste Management, Inc. (“WMI”) for unpaid wages. Specifically, we are exploring experiences where employees worked in a Waste Management office (nationwide) and were required to spend time working prior to clocking in at the beginning of shifts, or had their time cards altered to reduce working hours. This applies to those that worked from home or a remote location due to COVID-19, and were asked to spend time working prior to clocking in at the beginning of a shift, including logging in to a computer system.      

If you have worked as a WMI employee and this happened to you, especially if you live in California, we are interested in speaking with you about your experience. Employees of WMI nationwide who have worked “off the clock” may have a significant claim for unpaid overtime wages. Employees in California may have additional claims and penalties that apply if they are owed unpaid overtime.
