One of our own has a Prudie style question and needs some advice. They so kindly wrote in the form of a Prudie letter and asked me to post it in order to remain anonymous.
I work in an office but we’re hourly in case overtime is ever needed for special projects. We entered our slow season and haven’t gotten overtime in quite awhile even before that. Our office hours are 7-4, and always have been. I have found out through other people in my department that one coworker is logging on late to send out emails to have them time stamped after the 4’o’clock or even before the 7 a.m. time period, thus logging overtime. These emails can be answered most definitely between the hours of 7-4 and do not need special attention. While I think my boss is aware of what she is doing, I don’t think he has the proof or finds this very minor to bring up. Other people in our department find this unfair if we can get our work done during office hours
~bring this up or let it go?
