Daylight saving time – Don’t forget to change time on your Time Clock

With the upcoming daylight saving time (DST), clocks must be adjusted one hour back.  This is typically done on a Sunday at 2 a.m. but this may vary depending on the country.

When daylight saving time arrives, changing time on your Time Clock is relatively simple: check the manual for your device and follow instructions.  You can also find step-by-step instructions for HandPunch, Fingerprint Reader and Card Reader at the end of this post. Alternatively if you have HandPunch, you can use our HandPunch Admin software which will allow you to change the time on your HandPunch remotely.

When you change the time on your Time Clock, you have to make sure that no one is working at that time.  The best time to make time adjustment is after everyone punched out for the day.  For example, you can change time on your time clock on Friday night and when employees return to work on Monday, the Time Clock is going to be ready for use.

Some organization work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  If someone punched in before the time change and will be punching out after the time change on the Time Clock, this employee might lose an hour of work.  In such case, you might have to adjust their time by adding an extra hour through your Time and Attendance Software.
