If you have a system where employees clock themselves in on their computer when they start and end work, they could be stealing from you. All they have to do is reset the computer clock when they "punch in" by right clicking on the clock on the system tray and then selecting the option to change the computer clock setting. After they have clocked themselves in, they just reset the clock and start work. There are worse cases. At some hotels, the checkout desk had a system where the computer automatically calculated the bill when the clerk checked the customers in and out. In at least one such hotel, when the customers informed the clerk that they planned to pay in cash, the clerk set the clock back a day, checked the people out, then reset the clock. The computer showed that they had stayed for one less day in the records, but the clerk charged them for their full stay and pocketed the difference. There have been similar instances where clients paid by the hour for services such as tanning salons and the cashiers, after taking the payments in cash, reset the clocks so that the records showed shorter times. All of these are taking cash out your the pockets coif struggling businesses.
