A Time and Attendance Solution Can Help You Find Time on the Job 

Jordan and Audrey Zybala had enough work to do just keeping their Lago 210 restaurant running smoothly, but coordinating the schedule and vacation requests — using a spreadsheet to track entries — proved to be too time-consuming and inefficient. After talking with Paychex, they found a solution that gives employees a portal to monitor balances and frees the Zybalas to focus on growing the business.

"We were struggling to be able to keep track of paid time off and sick time off for all our employees, having to do it on a spreadsheet and through emails and text messages. It took up a lot of my time and energy."

Time and Attendance FAQ

  • What Is a Time and Attendance System for Small Businesses?

    What Is a Time and Attendance System for Small Businesses?

    Time and attendance systems are a method for employers to track and monitor their employees’ work hours. Manual or paper-based time tracking methods commonly include time cards, while automated time-collection options include tracking via badge, biometrics (iris, fingerscan), mobile, or web entry. Whether you’re an administrator, manager, or employee, Paychex has the time tracking solutions you need.

  • Why Is Time and Attendance Important?

    Why Is Time and Attendance Important?

    Time tracking is critical for compliance reasons, and can also help inform larger business decisions. Non-exempt employees’ wages are based on the amount of time they work, so failure to adhere to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and any applicable state wage and hour laws can result in agency penalties, employee-initiated litigation, and possibly even enforcement of back pay. At a high level, assessing hiring needs, workforce reductions, or job assignments may require knowing exact hours worked by employees. A reliable and accurate time and attendance tracking system can play a key role in these decisions.

  • What Are the Benefits of Integrating Payroll and HR Systems With Time and Attendance Software Tracking?

    What Are the Benefits of Integrating Payroll and HR Systems With Time and Attendance Software Tracking?

    Many businesses spend significant amounts of time tracking employee time worked. Having separate systems for payroll and time and attendance can lead to inefficiencies, increased costs, and frustrations. That’s why it’s beneficial to integrate these processes in a single system. An integrated payroll and time tracking system can help ensure that information is consistent across the board for all systems. Information is updated automatically, which helps to reduce the workload on HR staff from having to input changes multiple times in different work systems.

  • Do I Need To Track Hours for Remote Workers?

    Do I Need To Track Hours for Remote Workers?

    Employers must accurately pay employees whether they're onsite or working in a remote location. If your company has or plans to rely more heavily on a remote workforce for the foreseeable future, it's a good idea to make sure time and attendance can be properly recorded for both exempt and non-exempt employees.

  • How Do I Track My Employees’ Time and Attendance?

    How Do I Track My Employees’ Time and Attendance?

    There are many options to access and track your workforce’s time, whether your employees work in the office, from home, or move between job sites. While manual time-tracking methods have a high margin of error and may rely on employees to remember their hours at the end of a work week, automated methods can offer increased efficiency and accuracy. They can include:

    • Mobile timesheets
    • Advanced scheduling modules with calendar integration
    • Biometric time clocks and apps (scanning of hand, iris, or face)
  • Who Keeps Track of Employee Attendance?

    Who Keeps Track of Employee Attendance?

    A business should establish its method for tracking time and attendance, and employees should adhere to the process by accurately reporting hours, clocking in and out, or any other time scheduling task via that method. Managers should use the time-tracking solution to stay apprised of who's scheduled to work, who's on vacation, and other scheduling information.

  • Why Is Attendance So Important in the Workplace?

    Why Is Attendance So Important in the Workplace?

    Employee attendance directly impacts workplace productivity. It’s important to communicate expectations around start and stop times for employees, breaks, PTO requests, and other time and attendance matters. Keep in mind that there may be different rules for exempt and non-exempt employees.
