• Overtime is determined by numbers of hours worked, not by time of day. Federal law does specify when and how overtime must be paid. As for lateness, that's entirely up to the employer. After all, it's the employer who specifies business hours in the first place, and who is affected by employees not showing up when required.
  • You can never be late, or you face disciplinary action, but as for overtime, most companies do the 15 minute calculation. If you work 8 minutes overtime, you are paid for 15 minutes overtime. If you work 7 or less minutes over your regular shift, then it is rounded back, so you do not get any overtime. I hope this helps!
  • I don't think there is a federal law for either of these instances. Where I work, USPS, you are late if you are over 5 minutes late. Our clocks are in hundreths, so if you clock in after 8 hundredths, you are late. Overtime depends on if you are full time or part time. If you are part time, the very first minute over 8 hours is overtime. If you are full time, you have a 5 minute leeway over and short on the day. So, you could clock in 3 minutes early and work 2 minutes late and would round to 8 hours. Conversely, you could clock in 3 minutes late and clock out 2 minutes early and still be paid for 8 hours. If the total hours were more than 8 hours and 5 minutes, you would get all overtime over 8 hours. However, this is just the rule for the Postal Service, I have no idea of the rules where you work.
  • Check with govt. employees
