The Canadian labour code covers amoung other things: hours of work, leave, employer compliance, overtime, wages, pay and deduction. Employers are responsible for collecting and maintaining accurate records regarding the number of hours each employee works. Collecting this type of information on a paper timesheet leaves companies vulnerable to employees either being over or short paid.

Numerous studies have revealed that handwritten timesheets and paper punch cards are often difficult to read and include a plethora of mistakes. Manual timekeeping also increases the risk for record abuse whether from simple mistakes or actual intent to falsify hours worked as this system heavily relies on the employee honour system. ATS time and attendance system eliminates errors and ensures calculation policies are applied correctly and consistently across all employees.

ATS TimeWork workforce management software includes business intelligence tools to alert HR when an employee punches in early or late or if the employee punches out before or after hours. With the use of the employee self-service tool, employees can leverage their ability to request vacation, review work schedules and send other requests to their manager.
