DIA Badge Replacement

The Controller's Office, Payroll Division is committed to paying all City and County of Denver employees timely and accurately. To assist with this goal, the City has implemented the use of Kronos Workforce Timekeeper. Once approved to use Kronos 4500 Terminals, employees must use a DIA Kronos badge to clock in and out. The following is the DIA Kronos Badge Policy. 

First Time Badges for Employees and Contractors
New DIA employees should obtain their Kronos badge during their first week of employment.  Please speak with your HRS Team to receive a Kronos badge. They are located on the 6th floor of the Airport Office Building (AOB).
Replacement Kronos Badge 
Employees should report lost or damaged DIA Kronos badges to their Supervisors and the Payroll Division immediately by emailing After notification, the Payroll Division will re-issue a DIA Kronos badge unless deactivate the lost / stolen / damaged ID badge. This process can take up to 2 business days. The DIA Kronos badge will then be sent through interoffice to the employee.
Badge Deactivation
When an employee separates from employment, he or she must turn in his or her DIA Kronos badge to the Supervisor or Agency Representative.  The Supervisor or Agency Representative will then send the badge to the Payroll Division on the employee's last day of employment.
