The company I work has a new way to clock in and out for work. You enter you employee number and then a machine reads (and copies) your finger print.

Now, I do not work for the government. I do not work at some place where you need a security clearance. I work as a valet.

I do not agree with clocking in & out with your finger print. What's wrong with employee number + password?

The machine is securily mounted to a wall, but a hack saw and 5 minutes would change that. It's also on a pretty public area.

I just found out about this today when I showed up to work. And it has caused a bit of a battle. My boss isn't happy, but I just don't see why.

Thoughts?

Do they feel that the money spent on this technology will be less than what they estimate they are losing to fraudulent time keeping?

Your fingerprint is already on millions and millions of different things in this world, some of them quite unsavory. The problem is not really that they are using your print as an identifier, the problem is that it's a poor authentication mechanism.

Your company probably did this because employees are somewhat less likely to lose their fingers than to forget their passwords.

If you are not comfortable using your own fingerprint, my company FakeFinger.com will be happy to sell you a silicone thumb with a random print lifted from a greasy beer glass in Tijuana. It is guaranteed to be unique as far as you know.

Rather then have a key card hanging from a retractable key chain on his waist it will be a silicon thumb. That may be cause for some interesting conversation.

I just have a keycard where I work...

Fingerprints to clock in is a bit extreme
Just the new standard, when you goto disney you have to scan your thumb to get in.

I have a key card, have scan it 3 times just to get into the front door. Need to scan to enter the property, scan again for the parking lot, scan again for the front door, and then scan at different doors through out the plant.

I do not work for the government, military or military contractor. I work at plant that makes cigarettes.

just another way for them to fudge your hours. no way for you to prove anything.
I do not like the key card thing I have. they're always fucking with my hours too.
I'll get back at 630 and magically that extra 1.5 hrs never shows up on my paychecks.

so now I don't care what I have left to do I make sure I'm clocked out by 5pm no matter what. first time they say anything to me I'm throwing that shit in their faces.

My job tossed around the idea of timeclocks, until they realized everyone shows up early and leaves late on a regular basis and the overtime would cost them quite a bit, never heard of it again.

When I worked in a warehouse where I had to clock in I always kept copies of my timecard made on Friday, if you worked the hours they have to pay you.

Perhaps they are worried someone unauthorized will show up to "work" and steal some cars? It does seem excessive for the job. I've worked at a number of places that use biometric security, but I work in the pharmaceutical industry, and some of those places have morphine onsite, or dangerous viruses, or many other expensive and/or hazardous materials, so the security is justified.

Don't let them get your fingerprints. They will use it to track you, steal your DNA and make a clone of you. Once the clone is complete they will hunt you down and kill you.

BEWARE!
