Suffer or Permit to Work Examples

An employee may voluntarily continue to work at the end of regular working hours. He or she may need to finish an assigned task, prepare reports, finish waiting on a customer or take care of a patient in an emergency. An employee may take work home to complete in the evening or on weekends to meet a deadline. All of these are examples of hours worked under the FLSA.
