Answer: No, it’s never okay to work off the clock. It’s a violation of your Union Contract and Company Policy and Procedure. If you need more time to finish a task, get approval from Management, PIC, or Department Head.
Question: How many hours do I need to work in a month in order to maintain my healthcare benefits?
Answer: You need to have 90 hours per month, which is roughly 24 hours per week, to qualify for healthcare benefits. However, these hours are compensable hours, meaning that they are not only hours worked, but also vacation day, personal day, or sick leave that you got paid for.
