Continued from Part 1
Many employers have chosen to provide the exempt status to employees so that the burden of timekeeping would be lifted. Not only are accurate timekeeping records important, but it is the business that is responsible for maintaining and providing those records. Non-exempt employees get more flexibility and don’t have to log in and out or track break times and employers don’t have to worry about overtime reporting abuse.
However, keeping good time keeping records is made more difficult in this era of connectability. Employers have to train upper level managers to ensure that all time spent is tracked. Employees who respond to emails from home or connect remotely must track all time that is work related. Employees who stay through lunch and work late also need to track their time. This can be a difficult situation for employers to navigate and provide time tracking tools for their employees. Fortunately, Swipeclock has the tool for every business to make time tracking accessible, sustainable, and accurate. From web based application to time clocks, biometric time keeping clocks and mobile time tracking devices, employers can track employee time and easily maintain the records required by the Department of Labor. Additional tools for workforce management, time off requests, and scheduling are all tools that SwipeClock provides.
