Can I dispute a shortage in my wages for hours that I was working but not clocked in for?

Last week on the job I was asked to do company errands – pick up and deliveries. The hours that I doing those jobs were not input and therefore I was not paid for. When questioned, I was informed that I was not in the office, so I was not paid for them.
