In this wage and hour case, Dr. Steward was asked to provide analysis of meal period violation and/or lost paid time due to Sunrise’s rounding policies. In Dr. Steward’s analysis, he took the Sunrise employee’s punch records which showed the daily punch in and punch out times for the employees. The punch records also showed the employee’s rounded hours for each day. Dr. Steward started the process by calculating the number of potential missed meal periods. In the analysis, a potential missed meal is on e where the employee’s time records indicated that they worked more than six hours but did not have a meal period recorded for that shift. Next, he calculated the number of meal periods that were of insufficient length. A meal period that was less than or equal to 24 minutes in length is defined as insufficient in length. Last, he calculated the number of employee meal periods that occurred late. During the shifts lasting more than six hours, time records that indicate that the employee started a meal period after more than five hours of works is defined as a late meal period. Once the analysis was completed, Dr. Steward had determined that the potential meal period violations were experienced by 88.64% of the employees. In addition to missed meal breaks, Dr. Steward also analyzed the impact of Sunrise’s time clock round policies. Again using the time records, Dr. Steward reviewed the employee’s rounded time clock punches and the employee’s actual time clock punches as they were shown in the time records. He compared the rounded time clock punches to the actual time clock punches and found that the Sunrise employees incurred a total net loss of 611 hours due to the Sunrise’s time rounding policy.
