The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) is adopting a final rule amending its regulation related to the timekeeping requirements of employees at LSC funding recipients.

Aside from making multiple technical edits for clarity, the final rule defines the term ``case oversight'' and clarifies that employees who are subject to the timekeeping requirement are those doing work that can be charged to any of the recipient's awards as a direct cost. The final rule changes the requirements for timekeeping by requiring recipient employees who charge their time to awards as direct costs to keep time consistent with this part; establishing that employees must submit their time by the end of the pay period; requiring recipients to use the same documentation and standards for LSC grants as non-LSC grants; and allowing recipients to decide the time increments that their employees should use to record their time.
