How Do the FLSA Break Laws Apply to Your Business?

HR departments should be aware of FLSA break laws which stipulate that companies must record all employee breaks, regardless of whether they’re paid or not. Find out why digital time and attendance monitoring software is the best option to track employee rest periods.

Discover Best Practices to Save your HR Team Time and Money

As well as laws to abide by, there are also best practices HR departments can follow to design their time and attendance tracking in order to prevent time theft, which can cause financial loss for a company. This whitepaper will tell you more about them: 

GPS Software

Using GPS Software you’ll be able to see where an employee is at any point when they clock in or out, so this rules out “buddy punching,” a form of time theft.

Geofencing Technology

When GPS is used in conjunction with geofencing, employees working remotely won’t be able to clock into work until they cross the geofence, which prevents time theft. 

Biometric Time Clocks

The ultimate way to beat buddy punching and other forms of time theft is to introduce biometric technology into your time and attendance tracking methods.
