How is the crossover to Daylight Saving Time counted in Quinyx?

Updated 4 months ago by Leigh Hutchens

On the last Sunday of March, at 03:00, the clock is moved forward one hour.

Due to this, any employee with an active time punch between 02:59 and 03:00 will have 1 hour removed from their total shift - or punch-time.

Most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time (DST) at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. During DST, clocks are turned forward an hour, effectively moving an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening.

In the European Union, summer begins and ends at 1:00 a.m. Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It begins the last Sunday in March and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment.

On the last Sunday of March, at 03:00, the clock is moved forward one hour.

Due to this, any employee with an active time punch between 02:59 and 03:00 will have 1 hour removed from their total shift- or punch-time.

Summer time

As a consequence of the day being one hour shorter, i.e. 02:00-02:59 doesn't exist, In Quinyx shifts, punches, and absences can't start or end between 02:00-02:59 the night of the summer time change.

The hour between 02:00-02:59 is excluded from all calculations in Quinyx, so if an employee is working during that time, the hour between 02:00-02:59 won't be counted anywhere in Quinyx.

Example: an employee is working between 01:00 and 08:00. Any other day, that is counted as 7 hours, but the night of the summer time change, it's 6 hours.

Note that If there is a break starting and ending between 02:00-02:59 in the base schedule and it's rolled out the day of the summer time change, the break will be removed.
