The biometric clocks below will be updated to prompt for biometric consent no later than August 1, 2022:
- GT-400 Hand Scanner
- IDPunch 7
- IT 3100
- IT 3200
- All IntelliTouch models
The IRIS ID iT100 already requires biometric consent.
Consent for the use of biometrics must be received from every employee using a biometric clock.
Employees enrolled before this required biometric consent will now be asked to provide consent after they punch in or out. If employees cancel the consent screen or walk away from the time clock, the prompt for consent will appear at each punch for the following ten days, after which their template is removed. After giving consent, they can continue to use the time clock as usual. If the employee does not consent, it immediately deletes their biometric templates. The next time they attempt a transaction at the time clock, they will not be able to use the biometric clock successfully. A supervisor must re-enroll the employee to continue using the clock, and the employee will require consent during the enrollment process.
If employees do not punch for 90 days, a supervisor will have to re-enroll them upon their return to work. This occurrence may happen with seasonal employees or someone on extended leave. If the employee does not use the clock for 90 days from the time of the update, their biometric template is removed.
In addition, employees can revoke consent at any time. When employees revoke consent, their templates are deleted immediately. The next time they attempt a transaction at the time clock, they will not be able to use the clock successfully.
