The focus of this webcast is organizational timekeeping practices and how to best comply with legal requirements. To do this, we are going to look in detail at the areas of timekeeping where employers are most apt to make mistakes. Some of these pitfalls include the rounding of hours worked, early and late punches, the de minimis rule, after hours work and the misclassification of employees. We will then dive into beneficial tools and practices related to time and labor management, such as automated timekeeping software systems, organizational education initiatives, and auditing procedures.
By the end of the webcast, we aim to have achieved two main goals: give you a better understanding of how to more accurately record your employees’ work hours and provide you a thorough analysis of the necessary steps you should take to proactively avoid costly, inadvertent timekeeping errors.
Proper timekeeping is extremely important. Department of Labor audits and civil lawsuits are on the rise and at an all-time high. In the United States, the statistics are scary: during the twelve month period between April 2011 and March 2012 there were at least 7,064 federal wage-and-hour cases filed. Compare that to 1,854 cases in the year 2000 and it’s abundantly clear that compliance with FLSA timekeeping regulations should be a major focus of employers.
To avoid costly fines, settlements and legal fees, organizations must move quickly and carefully to audit the policies in place and ensure compliance with federal as well as state and local labor laws. Implementation of systems and processes to assist with enforcement and provide management with the information needed to properly manage the workforce is essential in the litigious times of today. The best way to minimize exposure from FLSA timekeeping violations is to have well-rounded timekeeping policies that are easily and consistently enforced.
