Consider this: An employee comes into work ten minutes late a few days a week, occasionally exceeds his/her given lunch break, and leaves the office a couple minutes early every other day. Over the course of the year, these additional (unworked) minutes add up to an entire week's worth of pay. Now, let's say they get paid $10 per hour for a 40-hour work week. If multiple employees are following suit with overstated time tendencies, the business owner is in turn paying out thousands of dollars of unworked labor per year. It may seem minimal on a week-to-week basis, but these inflated time cards can create a larger issue for the company's bottom line.
