    Sounds like Kronos to me. I can understand not punching in before 6 minutes.
    Punching out after 6 minutes.. equals overtime and must be approved per hospital policy.

    I work an HHC/Manor Care facility years ago that 1 time clock for the entire two store building and the expectations that approximately 30 people could all clock in and out within a total 6 minute window; i.e. no sooner than 3 minutes till the hour and no later than 3 minutes after the hour. If you clocked in by the 3 minute past mark but clocked out at the 3 minute before mark you got 15 minutes docked from your pay. The most ridiculous thing I have ever encountered with the exception of one boss who wouldn't unlock the door until 7:58 AM every day but expected everyone to be at the desk working literally 1 minute later.

    At my job they have just started clocking in at the start of shift on the DOT (0700/1900 or whatever is your shift) no grace period. We also have kronos.

    They do it because of how their time clock system works...it sounds like they're using Kronos at your job. If you punch in earlier than 6 minutes before or leave later than 6 minutes after, you're technically working an extra 1/10 hour that they have to pay you for.

    Common? Very...
    My thoughts exactly, M.
