An In punch time usually designates the time when an employee starts being paid. If your report has the type of role that can only be carried out at the work site, if they punch in before reaching the site, you know their start time is inaccurate. Similarly, if they punch out when they aren’t on site, they’ll be paid for time they didn’t work.
