Can A Supervisor Change The Hours Recorded On A Timecard?

Employers must pay employees for all hours worked. It is not legal for a supervisor to change your timecard if you have worked the hours. If you suspect this is happening, you need to bring it up, ask to be paid for all hours worked, and keep personal records at home so you can verify your work hours. If the problem continues, you may file a complaint with L&I, or if you quit the job and weren't paid for all hours worked, you may file a wage claim. (See "Termination Wages" section for more information about filing a wage claim.)
