PS Form 1260 Instructions

Normally, craft employees record four basic clock rings (BT, OL, IL, ET) daily on the EBR. City carriers' four basic rings are BT, move (MV) to street, move (MV) to office, and ET. Besides, employees record their time spent on various other operations by using the transaction code MV on the EBR.

Any employee who receives a premium pay, for example, night differential (Code 54), Sunday premium (Code 72) and/or additional straight time (Code 35) are required to swipe the clock or submit supportive PS Forms 1260 or 1261.

It is the city carrier assistants' (CCA) duty to record all of their clock rings on the form throughout the day. Also known as the Non-Electronic Badge Reader Card (Non-EBR Card), this form is useful when these employees are shipped out to work at other offices, on which days they will fill out a Nontransactor card in lieu of making clock rings.

It is advisable for CCAs to note down all the times that they BT, OL, IL, or ET, and then add up their working hours at the end of the week and verify this against their pay stub. Also, they should have their supervisors verify that their time was entered correctly. Good record keeping will ensure their payment reflects the actual time they worked.
