Going Round and Round on Time Clock Procedures

Filed under: General HR Buzz5:44 pm

Just a reminder….  Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, you’re allowed to round off workers hours as long as the rounding doesn’t always favor the employer.  In other words, over the course of time, the rounding should average out.

Specifically, the FLSA permits rounding employees’ starting and stopping times to the nearest five minutes, or to the nearest one-tenth or quarter of an hour.  A suggested approach:  Round up and down based on a set increment. So, for instance, if a worker reports in at 8:38, start pay at 8:45. But if a worker comes on at 8:37, start pay at 8:30.
