‼️ There are somethings you should keep in mind

  • If an employee clocks in a break after 12 o'clock it would be divided in two days.
  • If a shift lasts more than 24 hours after 12 o'clock, the shift will appear in two days.
  • The hours worked are not affected, no additional hours are added or subtracted, the hours are simply divided into two days.
