We have employees that seem to have an issue clocking-in and clock-out at the specified time in which they're required to. They're under limited supervision and to ensure that they're not actually working when they should be clocked-out, I'm hoping i can find a solution to solve this issue.


Is there a way to schedule an account lock-out and set a duration for say 1-hour. Essentially, what I would like to accomplish is at a set time, lets just say 12:00PM, their computer locks and they're not able to unlock it (or re-login) until 1:00PM. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish such a task? I forewarning would be nice as well. Maybe altering them in advance that they're computer will lock in so many minutes or seconds.

Well...IMO, that's a management problem. 


The purpose of the timeclock is to be able to verify when an employee reports for and departs from work.


Beyond that...any administrative policies desired by management...are up to management to devise and implement.


There's no need to try to prevent employees from clocking in or out...the time-clock exists to ensure that the data is accurately gathered.


If management allows employees to be late or early...there is no policy involving a timeclock or computer that is going to solve/remedy that situation, IMO.
