Time Keeping (Kronos) Limited - More Compatible & Secure

Due to serious security and compatibility issues with Java, IMSS recommends using Time Keeping (Kronos) Limited instead of regular Time Keeping (Kronos).

Time Keeping Limited, the lighter version of Time Keeping, does not require Java and is compatible with all common operating systems and browsers. Time Keeping Limited can also accomplish the same common tasks and functions as regular Time Keeping for employees and managers. For more information on using Time Keeping Limited, please visit

Please note that this does not affect "swipers" (individuals who report their time by "swiping" their card at time clocks).

As a reminder, IMSS strongly recommends using Java only when absolutely necessary and frequently keeping up on security updates. Note that IMSS regularly maintains Java on all Managed Computing PCs.

For questions or concerns, please contact us at using request type IMSS > Applications-Self Service > Time Keeping (Kronos) > Other.


“When I Die, They’ll Send Me Home”

"When I Die, They'll Send Me Home" – A Human Rights Perspective on Juvenile Justice in California

Elizabeth Calvin │ Annenberg Lecture Hall │ Tuesday, May 21, at 7:30 pm


In California children as young as 14 years old are tried in adult courts and given prison sentences meant for adults. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and other international treaties require that children under age 18 be treated differently from adults when accused of a crime. Elizabeth Calvin, Senior Advocate in the Children's Rights Division of Human Rights Watch, has been at the forefront of a coalition advocating to change California law so that it reflects the capacity of young people to change and mature. Elizabeth will describe her research and advocacy on juvenile justice in California, as well as the work of Human Rights Watch. As a lawyer, advocate, and author of several Human Rights Watch reports, Elizabeth will also discuss the process and challenges she has faced with collecting data and analyzing the results.


About the Speaker

Elizabeth Calvin is an attorney and Senior Advocate for the Children's Rights Division of Human Rights Watch, where she works for the rights of children in the juvenile justice and foster care systems.  An advocate for over 25 years, she investigates human rights violations, publishes findings, organizes others to support a change in law, and lobbies legislators to take action.
