Had an emplyee last year that said any hours over 40 just put those hours in an account and in the winter if we work 20 hours in a week, he will still get paid for 40 because I will deduct 20 bank hours. This year I forgot to mention this is how we do it here, to 2 new hires. I told them and they were fine with it. Couple days later one of my employees(my main mower guy) said that his wife said that he is working too hard and long hours not to be compensated now and that she does not want him doing the bank hours. We have been putting in 51, 45, 59 hours per week in in the last 3 weeks. So when he worked 51 hours last week, 11 hours went into the bank to be used in winter time. What could I tell him to tell his wife to convince her. He said he thought it was a good idea, but his wife said she did not like it. He fully understands that if we do the bank hours and he works 20 hours he will still gert 40 hour pay because I will pull 20 hours from the banked hours. This is a great idea, because it helps me retain employees, and it saves from time and a half.
