Millions of master clocks are installed, in hospitals, schools, offices, and factories world wide.
Master clocks receive time frequency from the national atomic clock or from a company’s internal Power Over Ethernet (PoE) or Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), or WiFi network, which is then broadcast to every network device in the enterprise, including analog and digital wall clocks, workforce time clocks, computers, POS systems, desk phone, and other devices. Since the clocks are synchronized they automatically adjust for daylight savings time and power outages.
Synchronized wall clocks feature easily viewable faces in a variety of sizes and styles in both analog and digital. These wireless signal synchronized clocks are ideal for facility renovation, retrofit design, and new construction applications.
Both 2016 party candidates for President spoke about increasing the federal minimum wage recently as Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump stated "The minimum wage has to go up. People are -- at least $10, but it has to go up.” While his rival Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton “supports a $12 federal minimum wage”.
The federal minimum wage for covered nonexempt employees is $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009. 31 states independently set a minimum wage, 29 exceed the federal minimum, while 2, Georgia, and Wyoming set a wage lower than the federal rate. Employees in these states are paid the higher of minimum wages.
Hawaiian Style Café of Hilo, Hawaii failed to record hours worked in excess of 40 hours worked in a work week as overtime on an electronic time clock system or similar time clock device, and will now be required to pay back pay, compulsory fines, and damages totaling over $50,000.
More than 160 workers at a Philadelphia direct mail and printing company will receive $1.45 million in back wages and damages after a federal investigation found their employer and a staffing agency failed to pay overtime wages.
The U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division conducted an investigation that resulted in a consent judgment, filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, in which ICS Corp., New Century Integrity Corp. and its owner Hokkito Teddy agreed to pay 166 workers $725,583 in overtime wages, and an equal amount in liquidated damages. The investigation found ICS, New Century and Teddy employed the workers jointly.
"Temporary staffing agencies are valuable contributors to our economy," said Wage and Hour Division Administrator Dr. David Weil. "These agencies should not be used by employers to attempt to avoid their obligations under the law. Those who do will be held accountable, as today's action shows."

Little Italy restaurant in Kissimmee, FL to pay over $40,000 due in part to Time clock record keeping violations of the FLSA.
It is problem industry wide; servers and cooks paid straight time for hours worked that qualify for overtime. It’s not uncommon for restaurants to attempt to use ignorance of the law to skirt FLSA claiming that they are in compliance by paying 80 hours in a two-week period as opposed to 40 hour in one week which is the law.
Setting a workforce time clock to the atomic clock is an extraordinarily precise means of time-keeping, with deviation of less than 1 second every 100 million years. Powered by a science few non nuclear engineers will ever understand the atomic clock defines one second as the time it takes a Cesium-133 atom at the ground state to oscillate exactly 9,192,631,770 times. It is this impeccable precision of the correct measurement of the second that is the base unit of modern time-keeping as we know it.
Additionally, Halliburton categorized employees as exempt when they did not meet the exempt employee classification. The Fair Labor Standards Act requires that all non-exempt employees be paid at least time and one-half their regular rates, for hours worked beyond 40 in a work week.
The number of people working under contract for the federal government is so vast that the Congressional Budget Office last is unable to estimate the exact size, and when requested to do so by the House Budget Committee, an estimate places the expense at well over $600 billion for both labor, and contracted products last year. Just to compare with the private sector, the world’s largest private employer with over 2.2 million workers is Wal-Mart and their worldwide revenues equate to 30% less for the same time period. So it’s safe to say whatever the exact number is, it’s huge.
