Just got an email that my bonus would be docked by $50 per day per occurrence for not logging in my time entries to be equal to 7 hours. WTF. I hate this shit. What do you all do when you bill 12 hours one day and 4 hours the next day? No chance in hell I’m logging 3 hours of vacation time for the difference!

Also, fuck you timesheets.

The policy isn’t that we’re expected to BILL 7 hours, it’s that we’re expected to enter that much time because the program requires it. The firm has made it clear that you can add non billable “professional reading” hours to meet that minimum if you need to. The firm has told us we’re allowed to. This is purely because the program requires 7 hours. It’s not a violation and the non billable time doesn’t charge anyone.

Wow. Out the firm please. That's a pretty aggressive penalty

My firm has a zillion codes for non billable. Professional development, admin for the firm, admin for my group, mentoring, reading, personal non-working time, etc. I doubt anyone cares just use whatever code applies to what you were doing.

Just putting this out there: at this point in the year, $50/day is MAX $8,250/year off your bonus. After taxes that’s MAX $5,000 out of your pocket. Tell them to pound sand.

Honestly a policy like this would cause me to smear out my time to hit the daily minimums. Eg if i worker 10 hours on Monday I would log 7 on Monday and 3 on Tuesday etc.

If you were just writing/doing research (i.e. not in meetings or something where you had to be in a certain place at a certain time), you could just reallocate the time so that it's 8 hours each day and you're covered.

Hi People,

How do you manage the situation where the manager has set an unrealistic deadline and you know that the task is going to take more than that.
