Excerpt from “11 Tips Your Manager May Not Share“.
Some workplaces require tools that record your time. Whether you are a non-exempt employee, salaried staff member, virtual worker or small business owner, be aware that others are watching. They take note what time you are online and how long your online status indicates you were offline. They watch how long you are away for personal errands, working out at the gym during working hours, etc. More importantly, they are sharing this information informally. Sooner or later, your manager will be made aware, whether directly or indirectly.
If needed, track your working hours – confidentially and consistently.
