One thing I always stressed to my employees was the importance of checking in when they got to work and checking out before leaving.
I needed an accurate account of their time and attendance. Whenever I was on schedule at my place of employment, I was diligent about clocking in and out.
I knew that if I forgot to clock in, I wouldn’t get paid for that day. I didn’t want to put in eight hours of work and not get paid because I was too lazy to clock in. I also didn’t want people to doubt when I left because I forgot to clock out. Maybe it was easier for me than it is now. Now they have time and attendance software for clocking in and out. I had to pass the time clock, and it was hard to forget to clock in when coming in. You had to pass the time clock when walking out. I am now older and working in a cannabis dispensary. I still don’t want to be accused of trying to get hours I didn’t work because I didn’t use the cannabis time and attendance software. All you need to do is tap the manager on the shoulder and let them know you’re there. The manager can easily adjust the cannabis time and attendance software if they are aware of when you came in and went home. Don’t expect them to be mind readers and believe it when you said you were there at 9 AM when the first time they saw you was at 10 AM. No matter how good the cannabis time and attendance software is, it will only work well when it is used.
