Cheating The Clock: Time Theft in The WorkplaceEye Spy Blog 2
What exactly is Time Theft? Time theft at work occurs when an employee accepts pay from their employer for work that they have not actually done, or for time they have not actually put into their work. Time theft can occur in a few different ways. If an employee does not show up for their shift at work, but has their friend punch in and out for them that day it would be considered time card fraud.Every company is aware of time clock abuse, but each one handles this issue in a different way. Wasted company time can come from many areas of your business, such as stretched-out lunch breaks, buddy punching, unjustified sick leaves and non-work related internet browsing.
Employees steal time off the work clock here and there daily. Like leaving a couple minutes early for lunch and coming back a few minutes late, but the time increment is so small that no one says anything. Or taking off 2 minutes early at the end of the day. Especially on super slow days when there wasn’t any real purpose to sticking around the whole time.
However, some bad apples take time theft to another level.
Preventing Time Theft
The most effective way to prevent theft of company time in the workplace is to carefully monitor when your employees check in and out for the workday. Manually doing this can be difficult, and may take longer than necessary. Therefore, it’s best to hire a licensed Private Investigator at Eye Spy.
Eye Spy will document and show where the employee is really spending their time. Whether it be at the hair salon, or running their side business while on the clock.
