Employee Timekeeping – Why It’s Important

Pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) employers must maintain accurate timekeeping and pay records for nonexempt employees in order to track and pay overtime.   This article from ADP is a good introduction to the basics of employee timekeeping.

As I have written about previously, the FLSA is a common vehicle by which many former and current employees can bring minimum wage and OT claims against their Employer.  Over the last decade, FLSA claims have increased dramatically.  This is true not just in North Texas, but nationwide.

With the Department of Labor’s focus on classifying more workers as “employees”, a topic to be left for another discussion, one can be reasonably certain the FLSA and diligent employee timekeeping will remain at the forefront of Employer’s minds.
