Timekeeping Training Course
In most any workplace, proper timekeeping practices are essential to ensuring that employees are compensated appropriately, and to the organization having thorough and accurate timekeeping records.
Proper timekeeping is also a matter of law for organizations that employ non-exempt (hourly) employees. Federal laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act and state laws require employers to maintain and retain detailed time and compensation records for all non-exempt employees. To this end, non-exempt employees must keep track of actual time worked, and managers/supervisors of these employees must review and audit the time records of their direct reports.
