When reporting hours, employees should round to the nearest 1/4 hour. For example: 15 minutes = 0.25 hours, 30 minutes = 0.50 hours and 45 minutes = 0.75 hours. Rounding should be used if the time in/out does not fall on the quarter hour. Time worked of 7 minutes or less should be rounded down and time worked of 8 minutes or more should be rounded up to the next quarter hour.
For example, if the arrival/departure time is 10:07 a.m., the employee would round the start time back to 10:00 a.m. If arrival/departure time is 12:23 p.m., the employee would round to 12:30 p.m.
