    Should You Make Up The Time?

    I just like to know what are everybody's thoughts on the below?

    Question?

    You leave in the morning to go to work. Ten minutes later you hit major traffic due to a 7 car pile up on the motorway. When you finally arrive at work, you are 15 mins late?

    Should you have to make up the time?

    Yes you should, assuming your contracted hours start from when you actually start work at your site of employment, and not when you leave home.

    not me tho - I travel about 15ft to start work

    yes definately.

    you are paid to work, driving to work is not 'working'

    anopther classic example that people within the UK look to get out of working.

    IMO if ytou have work and your doing something then you should be there till the job is done don't worry about minutes etc etc.

    if you happy at your work and you get paid for doing it then so be it

    A friend of mine was never on time for work, he just was useless at getting there for 9am. He was only ever around 5 mins late and at the end of his working day he would always make his time up. After a few months though he was given a written warning for his lateness on the grounds that his contracted hours were from 9 to 5. Seemed logical to me but he could never see it.

    Yes you should imo. as its not your employers fault if your late. In all honesty generally Im around 5mins or so late for work in the morning (kind of embarising given how far away from work I live), but I rarely ever finish at bang on 5pm when Im meant to so the time is made up.

    nah

    imo i have to pay extra on insurance to commute to work so i count my commute as work lol
    i dont charge em for it but if im ever late due to traffic then i dont make up the time either

    i was also told when i started that i could start work at 8am

    i arrive to work at 8:15 most days and no key holders are about ... i dont "charge" them for my time until 8:30... from that point on if theres noone to let me in .. its not my fault i cant get in to the building.

    tho tbh if youwork it out ive prolly made up more time than i need to coz im a darn hard worker lol
