Covering the Basics

The CS TimeClock calculates the time between the first IN clocking for the day and the last OUT clocking, even if the last OUT clocking falls on a different date.  This means the clock will also calculate hours for night shifts.

Payroll hours are calculated as a sum of the daily hours of the period selected. 

As a demonstration, have a look at the screenshots of John Smith's clockings and hours calculation for the period of 02 February 2009 to 7 February 2009.  The Browse Payroll Hours screenshot had to be resized to fit into the column on the right.


Taking it a few steps further

Enabling Advanced Hours Processing gives you 9 time categories instead of just one.  Configuring a 7 day working schedule for an employee will result in the calculation of Extra Time (time in before the scheduled shift start), Normal Time and Overtime (time worked after the scheduled shift end).  Hours can also be assigned to the Saturday, Sunday, Holiday, Paid Leave and Sick Leave categories.  You can also keep track of flexi time - the difference between the expected and worked hours are shown in the Variance column which is added to a running total. 

In the example above, Jane Smith is scheduled to work from 08:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday with a 1 hour unpaid break.  On the 4th of February she went home sick and on the 6th she was absent.


A balancing act that saves you money

To prevent you from paying unnecessary overtime, the Balancing feature will allow the employee to earn overtime only if their Expected Hours for the day has been worked.

You can now also configure payroll balancing.

Rounding clockings automatically

Round an employee's clockings to the closest 15 minutes (or any other value you want).

The rounding value can be set globally or per individual employee.
