How long should your organization keep employee attendance records? This will depend on the province or state in which a company operates. For example, on the website of the province of Manitoba, reads in part; “Employers and employees need to keep accurate records of the hours worked and the amount paid for those hours. Employers must pay employees for all hours they work and explain how the pay was calculated. Employment Standards requires employers to keep pay records for three years”.
Here is another example from the province of Ontario website “Employee and Retention Records, must be kept for three years after the day or week of work. If an employee receives a fixed salary for each pay period and the salary does not change (except if the employee works overtime) the employer is only required to record:
- The employee’s hours in excess of those hours in the employee’s regular work week
- The number of hours in excess of eight per day (or in excess of the hours in the employee’s regular work day, if it is more than eight hours).
Employers are not required to record the hours of work for employees who are exempt from overtime pay and the provisions for maximum hours of work.”
If you are small or mid-size business with 50-200 plus employees and tracking employee time and vacation pay with spreadsheets, it will take you an awfully long time going through paper records to verify hours worked in the unlikely event, you are audited. Your HR and payroll managers are the key to helping you solve these issues and are more than likely up to date on work-rule compliance.
