You have an employee who makes a salary of $480 per week. Your practice has been busy and the employee stays 60 minutes late for a few days to catch up on paper work. You tell the employee to take off a few hours next week to compensate for staying late a few hours. You believe you are being a good employer or office manager by balancing the situation with fewer hours worked the following week.
