1. Late coming penality Enhancement

What is the need?

There are various cases where employee's Late Coming Penalty is wrongly computed because of previous days attendance changes like an employee was late for three days as per shift timings and 4th-day system marked late coming penalty. Now employee regularized his/ her attendance for day 2 then all of the future late comings should be adjusted accordingly.

What has been changed:
Now we have created a program which always assesses employee's current month attendance and late coming and based on that update employee's late coming penalty. This process will make sure that no employee gets penalized because of wrong computation.
