- nettime solutions staff
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the minimum wage and overtime pay for employees. Unless exempt, employees covered by the FLSA must receive at least minimum wage for every hour worked. Overtime pay is for hours worked over 40 in a workweek, and that rate is not less than one and one-half their regular rate of pay.
Given these federal mandates, accurate time and attendance recordkeeping is a must. With an advanced system, your company can collect time and attendance in real time. Right down to the second, you will know:
- Time and day of week when employee’s workweek begins
- Hours worked each day
- Total hours worked each workweek
In addition to collecting hours, it is essential to keep a record of any changes made to an employee’s time. From employee approval, to manager approval, and submission to payroll–– a transparent chain of events is recorded in an advanced time and attendance system.
When the approved hours are sent to payroll, the time and attendance information automatically integrates into nearly every major payroll system. No more manual entry of payroll, which reduces errors and speeds up payroll efficiency.
