The Long Island Railroad will start keeping track of employees' hours by having them sign in and out of work with their fingerprints.

An audit by the city comptroller found that neither Metro-North nor the LIRR had a good system in place for regulating worker overtime or keeping records of the hours that employees worked.

The audit focused on how the two railroads spent millions of dollars given to them under the American Recovery and Reinvestment act.

The LIRR responded by saying that some of the projects the comptroller looked at were actually completed under budget and that making workers sign in and out using fingerprints would add an additional level of oversight. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
