Benefits of Seasonal Employee Time Tracking Systems
Does your company hire seasonal employees? The more fluid your workforce is, the more buttoned-up your time and attendance system should be.
For one thing, an automated time-tracking system ensures that you’re getting the most from your labor dollars, and that you’re only paying for actual, accurate work time.
For another, it will spare you hours of payroll-related headaches. Manually processing time sheets and payroll is especially arduous during peak season, yet being paid promptly is what keeps your workforce incented.
Finally, the Department of Labor has ramped up wage and hour investigations against some employers who hire seasonal workers, even targeting specific industries. Seasonal workers are protected under FLSA laws, which include keeping detailed time-tracking records.
But not all time-tracking systems are designed to handle seasonal workers. You need a system that:
- Allows managers to add and remove employees with a few quick clicks of the keyboard.
- Bases its fee on monthly active employees, so you only pay for what you use.
- Offers a mobile time-tracking app with GPS, for mobile workers or worksites that don’t accommodate time clocks.
- Includes a range of easy-to-access time and attendance reports, so recordkeeping is covered in the event of an audit.
