I am a dental hygienist and required to clock in and out including lunch time. If I work over 8 hrs in a day I do not get overtime, but if I work less than 8 (ie 7.5 hrs) I go to an hourly rate. Is this right? Also, I am told to attend meetings which require me to leave work early, but I do not get paid. Actually I get less pay because we had to clock out and leave work early to attend the meeting. I'm very confused. I work for a big company so there are other hygienist being treated the same way. Please advise.
