What to Expect During Daylight Savings
The Findd system is prepared to handle the time allocation and will properly calculate the time. There is no action needed from you, the client, as the system handles the time allocation automatically. Please see below.
Something To Keep in Mind
When Daylight saving starts any employee working when the time change takes place will lose an hour on paper, but will have the actual time tracked correctly.
For example, if an employee is working from 6 pm - 6 am they are going to be working 11 hours because the time change happened at 2 am. When the clocks change from 1:59 to 2:00 am they are actually changing to 3:00 am hence losing that hour. If you try to add a lunch break from 2 am to 3 am essentially it doesn't exist so it will not allow it. So if the managers wanted the employees to work a full 12-hour shift on Sunday that would have had to schedule them from 6 pm - 7 am.
When Daylight Savings ends, at 2:00 am the clocks will be set back an hour giving us an extra hour that day.
For example, if an employee is working from 6 pm - 6 am they are going to be working 13 hours because the time change happens at 2 am. When the clocks change from 1:59 to 2:00 am they are actually changing back to 1:00 am hence gaining an extra hour. So if managers wanted the employee to work only a 12-hour shift they would have to adjust the shift to start one hour later or to end one hour earlier.
What is UTC Time?
What used to be called Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) now referred to as Universal Time Coordinated (UTC), is a worldwide coordinated time scale calculated using the rotation of the earth and atomic clocks. Daylight savings and time differences worldwide are calculated from UTC as the original or base time.
