I work in a complicated situation where I'm a sub-contractor to a contract for a customer with customers. This leads me to "TPS report" type situation where I am expected to log four unique timesheets with a handful of "activity reports" on top of that.
Whereas logging a simple timesheet is often so negligable of an activity that the conversation is not worth having, logging multiple timesheets like this actually ends up taking a significant amount of time. While I've looked around online for general expectations of how to log time, the meta aspect to the question has obscured my results.
My question is this: are there any generally accepted guidelines for whether logging time should be done on your own time or on the clock (whether legal or cultural)? Does the answer change when it comes to things like expense reports and reimbursement forms?
