Hi Mr.Executive,
Prepare a policy regarding this area like if an workmen reports to the organization 10 minutes after the stated time then cut the half the salary, if workmen continuously coming late take disciplinary action this measures surely works out however you have to push it initially.
With Regards
Mr.Thumbs Up
First analyse-extent of late coming and whether it is a long standing problem/practise.
Who are the late comers?
Are they habitual late comers?
Which departments?
What is the system of attendance in the office?
First see what is the existing system for tackling late comers-is it adequate or inadequate or what is laid down is not followed properly.
Do get all statistics and discuss with HR boss and then with HOD -line of action.
Spell out a late coming policy-10 minute late coming permitted 3 times in a month,beyond that next two late comings 1/2 day c/l.
Counselling and disciplinary action for chronic latecomers.
you should make policy regarding the bellow components
*leave policy
*time keeping(every month one empoloyee get 2 to 4 hour permission ) above hour got permission u deduct the half day, one day)
Late coming has been a perennial issue in most of the organisations. We need to ensure that we manage it appropriately. If you plan to eliminate it completely eliminate it,you will not only fail but will invite other issues.We cannot be stringent on it. However we need to be firm. Some of the suggestions for handling the issue:

1. Positive Reinforcement : Introduce Rewards for Punctuality

2. Policy : Ensure that the HR Manual clearly deals with Late coming and the penalties.

3. Counsel the habitual latecomers and if the organisation can offer anything, think of extending the same so that the person concerned can come out of the problem. The staff should get a feeling that we are more concerned in helping them to get rid of their problem than in their late coming.

4. Try to avoid monetary penalties.

5. If possible, provide opportunity to compensate the loss in time.

6. Elicit the solution to the issue from them instead of prescribing/dictating something.

These may not be very relevant in factories or industrial establishments.
Dear Hina.1661,
Before your make up the policy and circulate it with the employees, kindly note that, as you are making a policy, which says, that late coming will not be tolerated and deductions will be made. In short, you are asking for the employees to respect the in-coming time, at the same time, if your management has a style, where the company work for them starts only in the evening, then most of the people, will be extending the out-going time. So the moment you press for standardization on the in-time, the employees will standardize the out-time, if this does not suit your industry, a flexi time module needs to be implemented..
Think, Speak with the managment, analysis the outcomes and then plan your adapt policy.
