Daylight Savings Time | Notice an Extra Hour on Your Employees’ Time Cards?

Over the weekend, Daylight Saving Time officially began on Sunday, March 12th, at 2:00 AM. Those using smart devices, like cell phones, didn’t need to manually turn the clock one hour forward because their devices auto-adjusted. The same applies to our FingerCheck time clocks. FingerCheck biometric time clocks auto-adjust so you don’t have to manually reset the clock. Since the clock adjusts and leaps forward one hour, any employee who is clocked in during the time shift is usually recorded as working longer by one hour.

However, FingerCheck’s time calculations takes that into consideration, and automatically adjusts the employee time cards to deduct an hour when Daylight Saving Time begins, and adds an hour when it ends, based on the employee’s time zone. If you notice your employees’ time cards are off by one hour, simply assign the employees the time zone in their master profile and recalculate their time card.
