    Working roughly 8-5, sometimes 8-4:45 sometimes 5:15 and so on.

    At the end of the day when the hours are added, what do you do with the 5:15?

    **15/60= 0.25 Ok so this means the employee worked 9.25 hours right?

    Does that .25 go to 60 or 100 to become the next billable hour?

    You pay employees based on a quarter hour increments ... every billing service I know of, both professional and otherwise, bills for services rendered in increments of tenth's of an hour !!

    If your employees know how they are paid, they may be paid in 1/4s. In the manufacturing plant I work in we have employees that are classified salary( only for legal reasons), but paid by the hour. They are paid in 1/4s each and every day. the hourly employees are paid 1/10s.

    I think I know what you are asking....Working 8-5:15 would be 9.25 hours. It would go to 100 to be the next billable hour. 5:30 would be .50 hours. 5:45 would be .75 etc...I round off to the nearest quarter hour myself.
