I work at a veterinary clinic and we recently hired two new people. The new receptionist and office manager (who has been there 2+ years) were discussing the schedule. We have VERY strict policies involving overtime - basically, you are supposed to watch your hours so you don't get any. However, the person who makes the schedule put the new receptionist on for more than 40 hours in one week. In discussing this issue, the Office Manager comes out with this gem: "Oh, well it's your responsibility to watch your hours and make sure you don't go over." I gave her my best WTF face and said "How does that make sense? Why not make it the responsibility of the schedule maker to, you know, NOT scheduled people for OT??" She didn't like that very much. Now we are getting a reminder memo about how OT isn't "acceptable" unless approved by the DVM.
