Time and attendance systems with biometric clocking stations – the key to preventing time card fraud


Time and attendance systems that employ biometric clocking stations for personnel authentication can help prevent time card fraud, a phenomenon that’s affecting both private companies and state organizations around the world.

This exact situation has occurred in Mobile, Alabama, the United States, where both authorities and the Mobile County District Attorney’s Office are investigating a recently fired municipal garage employee on allegations he may have stolen city money by falsifying time cards.

Several people are accusing the employee of saying he was at work at the garage when he was allegedly clocking in at a second job.

However, as part of an investigation into this allegations, a local reporter has uncovered a potentially bigger problem with city-wide timekeeping practices.

Mobile’s Finance Director and Mayor’s Chief of Staff, Paul Wesch, admitted outdated timekeeping could lead to employees punching each other’s cards more easily.

“Technology has brought us various forms of timekeeping, whether they’re thumbprint or retinal, proof of you being the one who actually clocks in your time, those are some things we’ll have to look at,” he said.
