Break Punches


If your employees punch in using one of the Platinum Series C time clocks (BN6500, BN6000, CB6500, CB6000) or punch in through the uAttend website, administrators can allow them to start and end lunch and break punches through the employee login screen. The punches will be recorded on the employees' timecards. These settings are enabled at the department level.

To use the break punch features for a department, follow these steps:


1. Click the Departments tab on the main menu.


2. Select the department from the list.

Even if the employees are punched out during break, you can choose to pay them for their breaks by specifying the maximum amount of time that you wish to pay.


3. If you wish to pay employees for a break during which they are clocked out, click the Edit link in the Add Up To field in the Break Punches section, and enter the maximum amount of time that will be added on to the employees' timecards for their break. Click Save when finished.

You can choose to prevent employees from punching in until the end of a lunch break by enabling the lunch lockout feature.


4. If you wish to enable the break lockout feature, click the Edit link in the Break Lockout field and select Enabled. Click Save when finished.
