Default what would you react in a situation like this?


thank you in advance here for reading my post.

Well, I recently started a contract job. But this female accountant is trying to cause trouble.
She changed my time stampt/time card. There was one Tuesday, I came in 9:45 and left about 5. I clocked in, but I forgot to clock out. However, I always said goodbye with the owner and all other coworkers when I was leaving.

This woman changed the time stamp for that day as 1:16pm(in) and 2:16(out).
I got very angry when she showed me the time card printout. I told her the machine didn't tell her the truth and I took her to the owner to dispute about this issue.

The owner agreed with me on the time I put down on my own written record which I kept for my self on a paper(a standard form from this company).
and the owner told me the accountant is the only one having access to the time card machine.

Then, the next day I asked the woman about the new hours she came up with. She said the owner is taking care of it. So I thought I could trust him better then stopped asking for the final draft for the total hours.

Then, Thursday afternoon, this woman gave me the check in a sealed envolop. I opened later at home and found out she didn't pay me for 3 days of work.

Friday morning, I came in and showed the check to the owner and told him the fact the check didn't pay the hours from Aug 4-6. He asked me to talk to the accountant saying he is not dealing with payment.

I pinpointed the "mistake" she made, she pretended she didn't understand, then eventually said "oh, I put on the wrong number here, it supposed to be 11.07, but I put on 1.07 instead"

I tried to be friendly saying "oh, well, it's ok, everybody makes mistakes". she didn't apologize for it.

The thing is I am very pissed off on this. She did it on purpose, that is for sure. From the moment, she changed my time stamp, I knew she tried to cause trouble.

This is the second time I work for this little business as a contractor and the owner really liked my work so asked me for more help with their web site.

The pay sucks, much lower than when I had my last full time job.

Anyway, I've heard this woman had problem with my precedent regarding wage payment as well. I don't personally like her either, straight/unhappy face all the time while I always come in with a warm greeting to everybody and very passionate on what I do.

(She and the owner(a 50s something guy) very close and been here in the company for a few years.)
Is it illegal to change contractor's time card? Is there a chance I can take her to court for this? Is is too narrow minded thinking of doing something like this?
I know the owner likes me and she felt a little envious, but I don't plan to join the business.

please advise, I appreciate any tip regarding this. Or you may just tell me that I am wrong or I am an idiot whatever, just tell me what would you do if you are in a situation like this.

waiting for your precious tips online now

Oh this is my realm! I'm in Human Resources and deal specifically with employment laws on the federal and state level. You have had some major federal violations that occurred. I will PM you when it's not like 209 am and I'm half dead!
