Timecard management is an ongoing challenge for small businesses with hourly workforces. Late or incomplete timecards are a problem for all types of organizations.
Why are Accurate Timecards Critical?
Accurate timesheets submitted on time are necessary for:
- Paying employees
- Billing clients
- Allocating time and resources
- Complying with employment law
Regardless of their importance, employees forget to fill them out all the time. Your clients can make sure their employees turn in their timesheets with WorkforceHub.

Train Employees on Time and Attendance Processes
Even with a timekeeping system, your clients can’t neglect training. They need to train new hires during onboarding. After onboarding, they can send weekly reminders. In addition, they can include timecard management as part of employees’ performance reviews.
While we’re on the subject of timecards, let’s address the legal issues.
Does the Employer Have to Pay When an Employee Doesn’t Turn in a Timesheet?
Yes. An employer can’t withhold pay for time worked. Under federal and state wage and hour laws, it’s the employer’s responsibility to track team members’ hours.
What if Someone Doesn’t Submit Their Timesheet?
When an employee doesn’t turn in a timecard, an employer can estimate from their past timecards or shift schedules. Remember that you will have to make up for it next time you run payroll. Hopefully, you will have their accurate timesheet by then.
Employers can document efforts to get the employee to turn in their hours. This may include emails or texts. The paper trail can help safeguard the employer in case the employee claims they were underpaid.
