Timekeeping


 
POLICY:
 
Accurately recording the time worked is the responsibility of 
every employee in order to provide supervisors with necessary 
information to maintain accurate records of
 
1.  All hours worked by employees; and 
 
2.  All paid or unpaid time off taken by employees during 
    each pay period.
 
Federal and state laws require that an accurate record of 
time worked be maintained in order to calculate employee pay 
and benefits. Time worked is all the time actually spent on 
the job performing assigned duties.
 
PROCEDURE:
 
Employees are required to accurately record the time they 
begin and end their work, as well as the beginning and ending 
time of each meal period. They should also record the 
beginning and ending time of any split shift or departure 
from work for personal reasons. Overtime work must always be 
approved in advance before it is performed.
 
It is the employee's responsibility to certify the accuracy 
of all time recorded and to sign the record. The supervisor 
will approve the time record before submitting it for payroll 
processing.  If corrections or modifications are made to the 
time record, both the employee and the supervisor must verify 
the accuracy of the changes by initialing the time record.
 
The actual times nonexempt employees should report to work 
and leave work are determined by their supervisor according 
to the Company's specific procedures.
 
Altering, falsifying, tampering with time records, or 
recording time on another employee's time record may result 
in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of 
employment.  Failure of employees to submit accurate and 
complete time records on a timely basis may delay or preclude 
the processing of the employee's paycheck as permitted by 
applicable State law.
