  • Exempt salary employees clocking in and out in Indiana Indiana

    We are considering having our salary employees clock in and out now. Not to watch their hours, but just to have a means of knowing who is here and who is not in terms of safety (we have over 1200 employees). I have been told time and again that it is legal to do this, but I would like to see it documented somewhere. Do you know of any laws or documents stating exempt employees clocking in and out is absolutely legal?

    The reason you don't see it documented (as such) is because it's not either required nor illegal. If you have people protesting, put the burden on them to show you the law that says you can't do it. They won't be able to.

      That will be difficult.

      It is legal because there is no law that makes it illegal.
      Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

      I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

      Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

        There are no laws requiring exempt employees to clock in and no laws prohibiting them from doing so.

        The company can do what it wants to do.

          The employer can also make it's Exempt employees wear rubber chicken suits to the office because there is no law saying that they cannot. There are a lot of things employers can require their employee's to do as long as there is no law that says otherwise.

            I don't have a chicken suit.

              Be careful what you ask for.

                You left that organization.

                Oh, wait. Suit, with a "u."
