Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday Nov. 4th

November 1, 2018

This is a reminder that Daylight Saving Time ends this Sunday, November 4, 2018 at 2:00 am.

For departments with employees that use a time clock, the CalTime system should automatically adjust time clocks backward one hour based upon the new daylight saving time (e.g., at 2:00 am the system will adjust one hour backward to 1:00 AM), and nothing additional should be required.

For time clock issues, or timekeeping problems in CalTime related to the time change, please take the following steps:


  • Non-Exempt ‘Realtime’ employees (those clocking in/out at the beginning/end of each shift worked ) should immediately notify their Supervisor of any issues in order for their Supervisor to perform any timecard edits, if necessary.


  • Will need to manually adjust time cards for any non-exempt ‘realtime’ employees as necessary
  • Take extra precaution when reviewing timecards for time recorded on Sunday, November 4 to ensure any errors have been corrected
  • Should pay special attention to timecards for employees who work overnight shifts beginning on Saturday, November 3 through Sunday, November 4 (especially those involving the 1:00am-4:00am window immediately before/after the time change).
  • Review employee hours scheduled during those overnight shifts versus time recorded in CalTime to ensure over/under reporting of hours does not occur.

If you have any questions, please email or call the Help Desk at 510-664-9000, option 5 for CalTime.

Thank you,

The CalTime Team
