Management meeting counts as work time

Q. Last week, we asked a nonexempt employee to come in 30 minutes before her regular start time to talk to her about a complaint that had come to our attention. Do we have to pay her for the time spent in discussions with management? —G.B., Kentucky

A. Yes. Assuming there's no collective bargaining agreement to the contrary, time spent in meetings with management discussing problems relating to the workplace during time required to be on the employer's premises is considered “working time,” and so you must pay for it.
