My workplace we round up to the nearest 15 mins...and our lunch break is paid, but may be interrupted by the phone etc. Love my job, if you look after staff productivity is so much better!!
At our work if you leave or start 5 minutes early/late you get docked 15 minutes (finger scan). Yet funnily enough if you scan out late it doesn't swing the other way . Even if I scan in 5 minutes late for the shift and leave 5 minutes late you still get docked which pees me off no end.
They work in 15 minute intervals so surprised they only would do 30 minutes as opposed to 45 minutes. It's the principal of the thing that hurts, they can use and a use you but god forbid they show you any leeway or common sense. It just makes me feel like a number with no consideration into individual circumstances or the fact I am a dedicated loyal employee who only does this once in a blue moon.
Good luck with it all xxxx
Eta: as we get docked 15 minutes many won't start 5 minutes late but will sit outside and smoke or play in their phone for the 15 minutes, as what's the point if you're not getting paid, letting the team down (every minute on the floor counts in our job) so I believe it's counter productive.
Mind you it means hardly anyone is late, ever lol

An absolute nightmare of a job. I could go on for hours about the things they did/picked us up on/the conditions etc but then I'd be writing forever lol. I made 10 months and walked out one day mid shift and never came back. They didn't provide references either so I didn't care.
