Labor Law Compliance
EPAY's Time and Attendance System Helps You Avoid Compliance Pitfalls
As an employer, your risk for labor-related lawsuits has never been greater. Federal court filings of wage and hour lawsuits have increased drastically in recent years. The good news is, EPAY’s cloud based time and attendance system has built in compliance safeguards that keep you in compliance with wage and hour laws and out of the court room.
Prevent Unpaid Overtime
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) mandates require employers to pay non-exempt employees overtime after 40 hours of work in a work week. If overtime pay isn’t calculated and compensated for correctly, employers can run into trouble.
EPAY's time and attendance system helps you prevent unpaid overtime and maintain compliance with labor laws. Automatic work time and blended overtime rate calculations ensure you are paying your employees correctly.
Avoid Meal Break Violations
Meal break laws differ from state to state, making compliance especially difficult for employers operating across multiple locations. Without ongoing enforcement and monitoring, employers risk being held liable for meal break violations and pay miscalculations.
Our time and attendance system provides you with increased visibility into meal break activity to help you prevent violations. You can set automatic meal break reminders for employees, and require them to confirm their meal break to ensure your practices are in compliance with labor laws.
Eliminate Payroll Errors
Failure to properly compensate employees for all hours worked is the most frequently cited violation made by the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour division. Improper time rounding and failing to pay employees for work-related travel time or donning and doffing activities are common—yet avoidable—wage and hour violations.
EPAY's time and attendance allows you to capture travel time and automatically append employee time to account for activities like donning and doffing. On-demand wage and hour reports help you stay on top of time changes and deviations created by time rounding.
Maintain Accurate Wage and Hour Records
The Fair Labor Standards Act requires employers to maintain detailed records of employee work hours and wage history. This presents challenges for companies that rely on manual time tracking.
Our time and attendance system keeps you compliant by eliminating manual processes related to tracking and calculating work time and wage rates. The system maintains detailed time and attendance records, which serve as your on demand audit trail in the event of a lawsuit.
Prevent False Workers' Comp Claims
Occasionally workers’ compensation claims involve fabricated injuries or injuries that actually occurred away from the job. To protect employers against false claims, our cloud based time and attendance system includes a unique safeguard, which requires employees to answer a safety question upon clock-out at the end of a shift. If a questionable claim is filed, employers can refer to the employee's dated safety confirmation to verify the claim or challenge its credibility.
Meet ACA Requirements
Affordable Care Act (ACA) regulations revolve around precisely tracking employee ‘hours of service.’ Our time and attendance system includes a special ACA Toolkit, which offers a host of unique reporting capabilities to help you stay in control of your workforce, contain costs, avoid penalties and streamline administration processes.
"Thanks to EPAY's time and attendance software, we were able to put false claims to rest before even going to court."
