Salaried employees’ pay is not dependent on their hours worked, therefore the actual time of day an employee’s punch transaction occurs is not recorded.

Why are salaried employee able to clock in and out?

Salaried employees must clock in and out in order to update their status in the Attendance Rx IN/OUT Board feature. If you would like to use the IN/OUT Board, your salaried employees must clock in and out.

The U.S. Department of Labor has ruled that an employer can require exempt employees to clock in and out without jeopardizing their exempt status, as long as the timekeeping policy is not for the purpose of wage payment tied to hours actually worked.
