Prevent Unpaid Overtime Lawsuits
ENSURE CORRECT OVERTIME PAY CALCULATIONS
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) mandates require employers to pay non-exempt employees overtime pay after 40 hours of work in a work week. If overtime pay isn’t calculated and compensated for correctly, employers can run into trouble.
Track and Monitor Overtime Compliance in Real Time
In addition to federal labor laws and industry regulations, numerous state and union agreements impose stringent restrictions around overtime. Together, these can be difficult to manage.
Blueforce factors in all applicable wage and hour rules so you can proactively monitor your overtime compliance. Take advantage of customizable wage and hour reports and violation flagging capabilities while maintaining detailed time and attendance records, which serve as your on-demand audit trail in the event of an unpaid overtime lawsuit.
Get Real Time Notifications When an Employee Approaches or Reaches Overtime
Keeping closer tabs on employee overtime is the first step in preventing an unpaid overtime lawsuit.
You can set up real time alerts in Blueforce to get notified when an employee reaches or is close to reaching overtime.
Accurately Calculate Work Time and Complex Pay Rates
When it comes to unpaid overtime-related lawsuits, miscalculated rates of pay (particularly with blended overtime pay rates or shift differentials) are often the source of the problem.
Blueforce automatically calculates employee work time and blended overtime rates while creating a detailed audit trail, so you know you are paying your employees correctly.
Put Tight Controls on Time Changes
An unauthorized time card change is a common FLSA violation that could land employers in trouble. Changes to time should only be done when absolutely necessary in order to maintain the integrity of time and attendance records.
Blueforce helps you monitor your practices and ensure they are in compliance with wage and hour laws. You can run variance reports to keep an eye on time card changes and even require managers to select a reason code before they make any changes to an employee's time.
