    The Early Years…
    The face of this early time clock shows employee numbers, which would be dialed by employees entering and leaving the factory. The day and time of entry and exit was punched onto cards, and the record of hours an employee worked was used to calculate an employee’s pay.
    Early 20th century time clock
    made by IBM
  • 3. “A time clock, sometimes known as a clock card machine or punch clock or time recorder, is a mechanical (or electronic) timepiece used to assist in tracking the hours an employee of a company worked. In regards to mechanical time clocks this was accomplished by inserting a heavy paper card, called a timesheet, into a slot on the time clock. When the time card hit a contact at the rear of the slot, the machine would print day and time information on the card. This allowed a timekeeper to have an official record of the hours an employee worked to calculate and pay an employee.”
