My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

Monday Mailbag: Not allowed to report overtime

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Subject: Overtime pay

Message Body:
I work in Houston, and want to post anonymously due to not wanting a backlash, and loss of job.  I am a position of management for the Census, and what is being done is illegal.  We are expected to produce high numbers, in a short amount of period.  The worse part about it, is we are NOT expected to receive overtime.  We have been instructed to doctor our time cards,  in order to not be paid overtime (ie putting hours worked on the next weeks timecard).  The Census employee manual specifically states that this should not happen.  I hope this is brought to attention, to bring Census employees their rightful due.
