Why doesn't my timecard report seem to total hours correctly after turning on quarter hour rounding?Quarter hour rounding is performed on the actual start and stop times, NOT on the total hours worked.
This is an industry standard. Quarter hour rounding is widely used to consistently pay workers for a 40-hour week. By rounding the start and stop times to the nearest quarter hour, a worker will always get paid for 8 hours per day and 40 hours per week despite the fact they may come in 'about' 8 AM and leave 'about' 5 PM with 'about' a one hour lunch.
