Question:Lately my store has been very busy and it has been hard to find time to do routine cleaning. At this morning’s store meeting, our manager told everyone that if they don’t complete their tasks before they punch out they will have to stay “off the clock” to do so. Is it okay for our manager to ask this of us?
No. Working off the clock is strictly prohibited by Starbucks. Starbucks is committed to ensuring that all partners are accurately compensated for all work performed. Any requests to work off the clock must be reported to Partner Resources or Ethics & Compliance.
