# Clock In/Clock Out (EMPTIME.E)
Read Time: 1 minute(s)
This procedure is essentially a time clock. It is usually used in conjuction with a bar code wedge device for reading bar coded employee badges, but data can also be keyed by hand. When the employee number is entered or scanned the system checks the current login status of the employee. If the employee is not already clocked in then the system will clock the employee in. If the employee is already clocked in, they will be clocked out.
