Time Records

Staff employees subject to the provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act, are required to keep an accurate record of hours worked, vacation and sick hours taken. Some employees will use time clocks to record the hours worked; other employees will prepare handwritten time reports. Time records must be maintained on a daily basis. Your supervisor will instruct you in the keeping of these records.

Time sheets should be completed in ink and not have any strikeovers or whiteouts. It should be checked for completeness and accuracy and signed by the employee and supervisor. If time sheets are not received by the stated deadline, your payroll check may be delayed until the following pay period.
Payroll records are subject to audit and should reflect actual time worked and leave taken. Any intentional falsification of time records may be grounds for termination of employment.
