STOP! Time Theft At Work Costs Everyone
Time theft accounts for 2-8% of a businesses’ payroll on average. Time theft accounts for such a large portion of payroll, it is crucial that business owners take steps to eliminate it. One of the most common forms of time theft is when one employee falsely clocks in for an absent or late friend, also referred to as ‘buddy punching.’
Employees often view buddy punching as a simple favor to a friend and co-worker who is running a few minutes late to the job. It is easy to see why employees would see no issue with clocking in for a co-worker a few minutes before they arrive. Unfortunately, over the course of a year, buddy punching leads to decreased profits and extra spending. As a business owner, it is your responsibility to avoid time theft, but how can you prevent your employees from clocking in for each other?
