I am questioning if exempt employees are required to punch a time clock.
our company was audited by the state and up to that point we just punched
in when we came in and out when we left. we never punched out for lunch.
My company is now forced to require us to punch in and out exactly correct.
if you forget to make a punch you are to be written up. after 3 warnings
you are to be let go. This was recomended by the audtor. I am just curious
because after the last 8 years of either not having a time clock( same job different company) and this company that you just punch in in the morning and out in the evening. If you made a mistake before you supervisor just had
to sign it. now even if the supervisor signs it you get written up. .
they say three times and your gone because the auditor said they had to.
(Managers, who are also exempt employees are not required to punch a time clock at all).
I am curious as to what the law really says - not what they auditor is telling
the company. any references would be greatly appreciated
