I have one employee where he is asking for OT. We had check his attendance and we find that he almost coming late to work everyday. We are planning to issue him the warning letter. Can we hold his OT payment since he comes late to work and yet asking for OT? also can we issue the warning letter to him at the same time?
Do you have proof for his late attendance? If yes, then his OT hour should be start later. if he late for 1/2 hour in the morning, then the OT shall be start calculated in 1/2 hours later in the evening.
I think you may take this action, issue the employee a warning letter, pay him OT and direct deduct the lateness from his basic salary (if your company policy does state that lateness will be deduct according to the time they are late)
