Timesheet Codes

TO:  ALL PERSONNEL
    FROM:  ACCOUNTING
     

    It has come to our attention recently that many of you have been
    turning in timesheets that specify large amounts of "Miscellaneous
    Unproductive Time" (Code 0016).  To our department, unproductive time
    isn't a problem.  What is a problem, however, is not knowing exactly
    what you are doing during your unproductive time.
     
    Attached below is a sheet specifying a tentative extended job code
    list based on our observations of employee activities.  The list will
    allow you to specify with a fair amount of precision what you are
    doing during your unproductive time.  Please begin using this job
    code list immediately and let us know about any difficulties you
    encounter.
     
    Thank you.
