    Legally time allowed for tardiness

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CALIFORNIA

    I JUST WANT TO ASK, IF THERE IS A LEGAL TIME OR HOW MANY MINUTE/S THAT WE ARE ALLOWED NOT BE CONSIDERED AS LATE?

    THANKS!

    A: Yes. Zero.
    There are two rules for success:

    (1) Never tell everything you know.

    It's the same as the number of miles-per-hour that you are allowed to go over the speed limit before you are considered speeding.

    Given that employers can fire you for not being tardy just as legally as they can fire you for being tardy, I hardly think that a "tardy grace period" would be enshrined in law.

    No. There is no law granting you x minutes that you can be late without being considered tardy. If you are due in at 8:00 and you come in at 8:00:01 you can be considered tardy and the law will not have a thing to say about it.
