Hughes Hubbard introduces hardline policy for delinquent time-keepers
Hughes Hubbard & Reed has announced a scheme designed to ensure better time-keeping by associates.
The firm’s plan means that associates who are more than five days late in entering their time will suffer significant irrevocable pay cuts. On the first instance of lateness the associate’s gross pay will be reduced by 5 per cent. The reduction will be increased to 10% in the second instance and to 20% in the third instance and any subsequent instance, and the reduction will stay in effect until the associate gets their time-keeping in order.
A little harsh perhaps?
