Time and Attendance FAQ

  • What is a time and attendance system?

    What is a time and attendance system?

    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 government penalties, employee-initiated litigation, and possibly even back pay. At a high level, assessing hiring needs, workforce reductions, or job assignments may require knowing exact hours worked by all 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 tracking?

    What are the benefits of integrating payroll and HR systems with time and attendance 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 hourly and salaried 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 time sheets
    • Advanced scheduling modules with calendar integration
    • Biometric time clocks and apps (scanning of hand, iris, or face)
