Is it legal for salary employees to punch in and out in Illinois?

I thought only hourly employees could be required to use a time clock.


Answer by  shannab (117)

It is legal. A lot of employers require their salary employees to do this so they can keep up with the hours worked.

Yes, it is legal. The employer has the right to assure that employees, salaried or hourly, are putting in the time as agreed.

As long as they are paying you the salary that you should be getting it's not illegal. Companies do this occasionally to track to make sure their employees are on time and to track any overtime.

In most states all employees, hourly or salaried must punch in and out on a timeclock. There are regulations for how many hours a person can work, salaried or hourly.

The short answer is: it is not illegal. Employers may have a legitimate reason for requiring you to punch in and out. All employment is "at will" meaning that you can be fired for any reason. So punch in and don't get fired.

it is legal, as Salaried employees are generally salaried for a set amount of hours per week, as stated in their contract, my managerial contract for swing manager when I was younger at McDonalds required me to be on the clock for 45 hours a week, however I generally spent longer than that in the store per week

Seems like maybe not and that if salaried employees are required to punch a time clock that they become hourly employees.
