We have a policy that hourly employees must clock out anytime they physically leave the building, even if it is for a 15 minute break to run across the street and get coffee.
Some employees are upset that they have to clock out when they leave the building. In Minnesota, is there any give here? Having employees on the clock while they are running around getting coffee can be a huge liability for the company. However if they choose to stay in the building and drink the company provided coffee, they get paid for that break.
