  • Time Rounding Nevada

    We use the 15 minute rule to round employee time entries.
    Is it legal to round meal break times as well in Nevada?
    The system we use is currently rounding in/out and well as beg and end of unpaid breaks.
    Thank you!

    Yes, it is legal to round every punch. However, I would be careful with this if, as a result of the rounding, the employee does not get paid for substantially all time worked. The "unpaid breaks" are meal periods, not rest breaks, right?

      The rounding regulation does not actually mention breaks or meals. And the regulations on breaks or meals do not mention rounding. The rounding regulations talks about "come in before their regular starting time or
      remain after their closing time".

      I would urge caution here in assuming that breaks and meals can also be rounded.

        DAW...after lots of Googling, that's all I could fine as well.

        (I also found this website which is pretty informative.)

        Our system is rounding all punches. If you use the theory that lines at a time clock are the primary reason rounding comes in to play, it really shouldn't matter if it is beg/end break punch or an in/out punch.

        Thanks for the input....

          Yes, unpaid meal breaks (where the employee is not doing any work) not paid "rest" breaks.


          Thank you Patty.

            I wouldn't dismiss DAW's comment out of hand, though. If you have time clocks, it would be pretty easy to pay to the minute and not round at all.
