Standard calendar across different planets?

Does anyone have any idea how I can handle trying to create a standardized calendar and time zones for an interplanetary nation/empire? I mean, because you'd probably have to take into account that each planet takes a different amount of time to complete one rotation, as well as taking a different amount of time to complete an orbit around their respective star. And then there's also the issue of how long it would take to travel between planets and such. I don't have a set distinctive technology for my story yet, so if any of you have solutions regarding that, I'm pretty flexible. Along those lines, can anyone recommend to me any fiction or such that deals with this type of thing?

Thanks in advance. Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, I suppose I could just make it that the emprie creates a standard calendar based on their planetary habits and everyone else could just deal with it...
