Over the last several years, the issue of overtime has become, somewhat of an albatross for some companies but, in reality it does not have to be. When you consider how easy it is to automate employee attendance. And, with the advancement of cloud computing it has now become inexpensive and faster to deploy a time and attendance solution that will accurately track overtime hours. So, why do some companies consistently rely on paper time sheets when they can save costs by using an attendance system?
A recent article written by Eric B. Meyer for Eremedia says that although, the new overtime rules by the department of labor may not be enacted until the end of 2016, there are some steps that companies can take ahead of this law. They include:
“Ensure that non-exempt employees receive minimum wage and overtime when they work more than 40 hours in a work week.
Double check employee classifications to confirm that exempt employees truly are exempt (and vice-versa).
Do you have independent contractors? Or are they employees whom you’ve simply labeled independent contractors? Now, may be a good time to vet that.”
Tracking employee overtime through the use of spreadsheets is a time-consuming process, but don’t fret, there is a better way.
