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.
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.
