Time Clock Rounding Up In S.c

Postby Joseph » Sat Dec 03, 2016 9:07 am

My company says that our time clock has a 7 minute "window" from shift to shift. Our schedule is from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. If I clock in at 7:00 my time sheet reads 7:00. If I clock in at 6:57 a.m. it reads 7:00. If I clock in at 6:55 Monday through Thursday, it reads 7:00 - BUT if I clock in at 6:55 on Friday, it reads 6:55. No consistency.

If I clock out at 4:00 it reads 4:00. According to our payroll specialist, our time clock should be rolling us back to 4:00 if we clock out up to 7 minutes later. My question is if I am dealing with a customer - working- till 4:07 and clock out, shouldn't the company have to pay me for that time instead of clocking me out at 4:00?

It seems that it has been a matter of what works best for them instead of actually paying me for my time.

Time Clock Rounding Up In S.c

It is rounding to the nearest 15 minutes. If you check out at 4:07 you are paid for 4:00 if you check out at 4:08 you will be paid for 4:15.  

In the mornings anything from 6:53 forward will be 7:00. If it records 6:55 it will still be rounded to 7:00 on the time when time is processed. If you clock in at 6:52 than it should go back to 6:45. Shirley
