Can Indian Casinos alter time clock ins?

Asked about 1 year ago - Littleton, CO

My tribal casino job uses a timeclock badge scanner and I sometimes work over my eight hour shift, but the casino does not past the 40 hour mark regardless. Is this legal, even at a tribal casino?

Working more than 40 hours in a work week may create a claim for overtime pay, if you are not exempt from overtime. The Fair Labor Standards Act covers overtime claims and has been applied to tribal employers by some courts.
