New California decision affirms employers' ability to round time clock entries

15 November 2012

Employment Alert

The California Court of Appeal has issued a new decision affirming an employer’s ability to round employee time clock entries, so long as the rounding is neutral, both facially and in practice, over a period of time. See's Candy Shops, Inc. v. Superior Court (Silva), Case No. D060710. The employer in the case, See’s Candy Shops, uses a payroll system that rounds employee punch clock time entries either up or down to the nearest six minute increment. Although California employers have long engaged in such time-rounding practices, no California statute or case specifically authorized or prohibited these practices before the See’s Candy decision.
