does a salaried employee have to clock in and out?

Does a salaried employee have to clock in and out?

This is a matter of company policy, not employment law.

Salaried employees can be either exempt or non-exempt. Exempt employees are not entitled to overtime, regardless of how many hours they work in a payroll week.  A non-exempt salaried employee is entitled to overtime when the employee works more than 40 hours in the payroll week. Therefore, it is always appropriate for non-exempt employees to clock in and out.

However, as an employer you may require that exempt employees clock in and out, as well. This prevents problems with attendance and tardiness, and allows you to monitor the exempt employees performance, in terms of the number of hours worked. There is nothing wrong with such a policy — and simply requiring exempt employees to use the time clock does not automatically entitled them to overtime.
