Time Clock Rounding Rules and Examples

 

Examples:

15 minute rule (1/4 hour rounding)

I arrive at 7:53:00AM, it starts to pay me from 8:00:00

 >>> 7:52:59 would pay from 7:45:00

I leave at 5:07:59, it pays me back to 5:00:00

>>> 5:08:00 would pay to 5:15:00

 

Quick Answer:

7:53 to 8:07 pays from 8:00

8:08 to 8:22 pays from 8:15

8:23 to 8:37 pays from 8:30

8:38 to 8:52 pays from 8:45

 

Definitions and Examples:

None:  (No rounding) accumulates all the time registered on the clock.

This calculates totals to 1/100th of an hour, and may print in minutes or 100th's

 

Quarter Hour: Rounds and calculates punches from nearest quarter of an hour, with the split occurring in the middle of each quarter hour.  Often referred to as 15/7/8 rounding.

 

To illustrate:     7 minutes 59 seconds rounds back

           8 minutes 00 seconds rounds forward

           

Example:          A punch at 8:52am would calculate as 8:45am

                        A punch at 8:53am would calculate as 9:00am

                        9:07 pays back to 9:00

                        9:10 pays forward to 9:15

 

                        Combined example:

                        8:53 to 9:07 pays to 9:00

                        9:08 to 9:22 pays to 9:15

                        9:23 to 9:37 pays to9:30

                        9:38 to 9:52 pays to 9:45
