Cash Off-the-Books

Many employees are paid for their work with “cash off the books” meaning that they are paid cash without any W-2 forms or tax records “on the books.”  Even if you are paid “off the books” you are still entitled to receive overtime pay and minimum wage under the FLSA.

Medical Attention

If you have to get medical attention or treatment during the workday for work related injuries or illness this time spent should be counted as hours worked.  The time spent waiting for and receiving treatment is included in this time.  If your employer tells you to go get treatment, the employer can be required to pay for your time because you were injured on the job.  If follow up medical treatments are required during working hours and your employer instructs you to go at that time, then the hours of treatment are considered hours worked.  But, if your employer does not instruct you to go, then the hours you are away from work should not be counted as hours worked. 


A home-worker is any person who is employed to do their work at home.  Some examples of this type of work include:

  • seamstress
  • data processor
  • telephone surveyor
  • bookkeeper
  • craft piecework

All of the time that you spend working in your home should be counted as hours worked.  This does not include all of the time you are at home, including your private day-to-day activities that do not pertain to your work.
