Time Clock Rounding Rules by State 2024

Time Clock Rounding Rules by State 2024

Notes:
- Many employers track employee hours worked in 15-minute increments, and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) allows an employer to round employee time to the nearest quarter hour. However, an employer may violate the FLSA�s overtime pay requirement if the employer always rounds down when the employee works less than a full 15-minute increment.
