Step 1: Download the bi-weekly timesheet template of your choice. Please note, values on XLS files can be filled in on your computer. Make a copy of the Google Sheet to fill in values on your computer. If you’re using the Google Sheet online, “Total (Hours)” will need to be added manually based on clock in/out times. Hours, rates, and sub-total formulas will calculate automatically. Word and PDF files are read-only, so print a paper copy for best results.
Step 2: Fill in your employee’s name, their manager, your company’s name, the pay period start date, your employee’s standard pay rate, and your employee’s overtime pay rate.
Step 3: Employees can fill in the day, date, job/shift, job/shift code, their time in/out (including breaks), and any remaining hours (overtime, sick, holiday, and vacation).
Step 4: When it’s time to hand the timesheet in, employees sign the top of the form. Managers can then calculate the employee’s total time for payroll.
