Hello Bev,

Do the verbs "clock on" and "clock in" mean the same thing, that is to start work?

Thanks!

Exp:
clock in/on(BrE) =punch in (NAmE)= to record the time at which arrive at work, especially putting a card into a machine.

When I worked in a factory I had to clock on when I entered the gate.
