My employer asked me to complete a construction site planning task, which ended up taking me 14hours. We were both surprised how long it took, but it is what ended up being required. They believe it should have only taken 4hrs and are only offering to pay me 4hrs, out of the 14hrs it took. Does this mean if I can't prove it took that long they don't have to pay me for it, because I have no way of proving it actually did.

Thank you for the question. If you worked those hours, you should be paid for them. If your employer will not pay you, you can file a claim for unpaid wages with the Ministry of Labour.
