Re: Not compensated for hours worked - need second opinions

I was also given a paper to sign back in December which explained that I would be converted to a clocking employee in 2017 and that I would begin with -8.4 hours.
That was the time to bring it up. If you had an issue with it, why did you sign the contract...

Re: Not compensated for hours worked - need second opinions

As to the general duty to clock: it is actually considered to rather protect employees than to incommode them. As per 01.01.2014, the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) issued a directive (ref. 2013-10-23/381, http://www.news.admin.ch/NSBSubscrib...ents/33319.pdf) which distinguishes three different categories of employees with three different obligations re work time recording:
a) Category A: Top managers (no work-time recording obligation)
b) Category B: Executives (simplified work-time recording)
c) Category C: Other employees (comprehensive work.time recording)

It might well be that the new rules introduced in your company are meant to comply with this SECO directive.

As to the overtime worked in 2016, it should normally be compensated by the employer in one way or another: in the form of days off - such as the "mandatory" days off, or via financial compensation in exceptional cases... (one could argue the introduction of a new system in Jan. 2017 is such an exception). You might wisht to check the collective staff agreement (Gesamtarbeitsvertrag) if it contains any guidance, and/or ask the staff association what they recommend.
