Does your employer use an automatic time clock system to track and record your work time?  Your employer must pay you if you arrive at work early, stay late, or work during an automatic lunch break. You may be eligible to recover unpaid wages if you work or worked for an employer that used an automatic time clock if the company failed to pay you for all of your work time.
