Adjust/Eliminate Mis-Reported Break Time

Post by TAdmin » Wed Aug 23, 2017 7:51 am

In our first attempt to create a new policy group to allow for (two) paid 10 minute breaks in one (eight) hour work day, a single 20 minute break was forced/added to each employee's time worked for 8/22/17. As you review each Timesheet, under the Accumulated Time, this added to each employee's time worked and reflects 20 minutes MORE than their actual time worked for that day.

This needs to be adjusted (removed/reduced from time worked).

What would you suggest the best way to handle this would be?

My thoughts are to adjust punch times, however this would almost have to be entered as a negative punch to reduce 20 minutes from each employee's time worked.

If the punch times are "accurate" they should never be adjusted to work around other problems. For example if an employee left work at 5:00PM, you should never modify it to read 4:40PM to work around another problem. This just compounds the original issue and will make things even more difficult to correct later.

I would guess that the break policy you setup is not correct and should be corrected first, then you can recalculate the employees timesheets.

We would need more details to assist you further though, such as screenshots of your break policy and an example timesheet showing the problem, and a detailed description of what you are trying to achieve instead.
