I am located in NY and deal with this issue often. Here are some thoughts:

1. company may wish to get a software or time keeping program to keep precise track.

Otherwise, one can create a weekly sheet that an employee would sign in and out including for lunch and breaks.

Finally, company can simply keep track of one's time by having that assigned to someone who keeps track of arrival, exists, breaks etc.

The pay stubs can further reflect those hours.
