My coworker is working off the clock

by Evil HR Lady on January 1, 2013

Dear Evil HR Lady,

I have a coworker who’s considerably senior to me. He has a habit of coming in well before he’s scheduled to start and starting to work, but not punching in until his actual time. I know this is definitely illegal, and could open our business to some really expensive lawsuits, but I also know that my immediate supervisor definitely is aware of what he does. I’m not sure that whether our general manager does (he’s pretty new). We’re a pretty small hotel, so the GM is someone I see 3-5 days a week.

Should I bring this up to my general manager or should I consider it ‘not my business’? If I should bring it up, do you have any suggestions for how to bring it up in a way that doesn’t make it seem like I’m tale-bearing?
