Make Time Theft and Overtime a Top Priority

Due to recent government audits, time theft has become a hot topic.

Government officials caught 60 federal workers cheating on their time sheets. According to the reports, some of the federal employees were out fishing, golfing, gambling or traveling during their claimed working hours.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. 

Following the White House proposal to ensure US workers are in line with overtime pay, the Labor Department is focused on determining which workers are eligible for time-and-a-half when working more than 40 hours in a week. Though the new regulations have not been finalized, many companies are scrambling to find ways to comply with the law so they are able to maintain their labor costs.

With time and attendance now under the spotlight, manual processes can no longer be a consideration for compliance sake, especially if your company has 50 or more employees.

Compliance is a major concern for any employer and identifying a system can be tricky. 

Avoid labor costs and time theft by automating your time and attendance processes. With a cloud-based time and attendance software, you can manage your workforce schedules, vacations, sick time, and overtime accurately. This in turn helps simplify your payroll data and reduce errors or inquiries. 

Don’t get left out of the loop. Make preventing time theft and unnecessary overtime a top priority.

Unlike the manual punch in stations that use paper time sheets, most automated time and attendance systems offer a digital clock with a proximity badge, barcode or biometric fingerprint reader that is configured to each employee for time punches. All of which can reduce buddy punching and/or time theft.
