Can my employer change my time sheet or clock-in time?

There are only certain reasons why an employer should adjust your time clock. If you forget to clock in, for example, an employer would fix this for you, or another example is that your employer needs to adjust vacation hours.
However, there are many employers who change employee’s actual hours to reflect less hours worked, like changing 45 hours to 35 hours. By doing this, employers avoid paying federal overtime pay.

The Fair Labor Standards Act mandates that employees should be paid for every hour of work so if your employer changes your clock-in-and-out times and cheats you of hours worked there could be other wage scams going on. Employers use various wage scams across all industries to cut employees' pay.
