Time is reported by the employee on the timesheet:
Timesheet Punch Total
After the Time Administration process runs, the Payable Time Detail screen displays the Payable Time rounded by the quarter hour. 
Payable Time
Rounding is done at the punch level. 
  • If an employee punches in at 8:03 AM, the Time Administration process runs and rounds that punch to an 8:00 AM punch. 
  • The employee punches out at 11:55 AM for lunch and the Time Administration process rounds that punch to 12:00 PM in Payable Time. 
  • The employee finishes lunch and punches back in at 12:38 PM, which will be rounded to 12:45 PM in Payable Time. 
  • The employee finishes work for the day and punches out at 4:32 PM, which will be rounded to 4:30 PM. 
The total of all rounded Payable Time for the day is displayed in the Payable Time Detail:
