forced to clock out but still work
My boyfriend works for a chain of restaurants and keeps getting ''clocked'' out but is forced to still continue to work until the work is finished. Apparently they have time quotas they can't go over. Additionally, he is not provided adequate breaks and was not allowed to eat during a 9 hour shift. He's afraid of being fired if he doesn't do what they say and we really can't afford to lose the pay. What should he do?

Re: forced to clock out but still work
Your boyfriend's employer may be in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"). However, I would need further details to give you an opinion. Feel free to contact my office.
