CVS Complaint - Unfair Labor Practices
Hourly workers for CVS are being screwed. Their payroll system only pays to the tenth place, after the decimal. Meaning, if you worked 40.14 hours, you would only be paid for 40.1. The system truncates the hundreths place and rounds up or down, so on paychecks they would appear as 40.10. (They add the zero.) Now, mathmatically, an employee can lose or gain 4 minutes on any punch that is recorded. But many of them lose. In a year, multiplied by all of CVS's hourly employees, this adds up to over a million dollars, put back in the company's pocket. Modern payroll systems use 3 decimal places to calculate payroll. CVS does not. They only use one. If a math-savvy person reads this, you'll know. It may seem like pennies, but it adds up real quick for CVS.
