Q. We allow nonexempt (hourly) employees to work from home. Some of them are turning in overtime slips. Do we have to pay them for those self-reported extra hours? — M.T., Maryland
A. Although it is more difficult to monitor time when an employee works remotely, you must payfor all time worked. Thus, you must rely on the employee to accurately record his or her time and you must accept that time as accurate unless you have evidence to the contrary. You must also pay remote employees for any overtime they work, as self-reported.
