FLSA regulations require businesses to store two years of employee time keeping records. TSheets has a better solution than paper timecards.

Tracking Time for FLSA Compliance

Did you know that you’re required to track time for ALL non-exempt employees — and keep those records for TWO YEARS? Here’s how TSheets can help.

TSheets can help keep you FLSA compliant with secure audit logs and simple employee time tracking.

Avoid costly wage and hour lawsuits

Time tracking is one of the best ways you can prepare for the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulatory changes and avoid unexpected and expensive wage and hour lawsuits. TSheets eliminates confusion surrounding overtime hours, provides an easily accessible audit log for your records, and gives you accurate employee time data so you can make sound decisions when it comes to reclassification or restructuring. TSheets’ cloud-based time tracking helps you stay in the know and in compliance.

With TSheets who's working window, you can see who is working where across your organization.

Be prepared

By implementing mobile time tracking now, you’ll quickly get an accurate view of labor hours across the company, from exempt and nonexempt employees alike, so you can make informed decisions about any changes you make to your company driven by the new regulations.

  • See labor hours in real time with the “Who’s Working” dashboard
  • Access reports with one click to see hours by employee, project, client, job type, etc.

Accurate, real-time Insight

TSheets helps business owners nip problems in the bud by pinpointing inefficiencies, productivity, and patterns in employee hours.

Having a handle on how your employee hours are being spent, how much overtime is being accrued, and trends in hours can help you make informed, sound decisions when it comes to complying with the FLSA—and protect you in the event of a lawsuit.

TSheets can help employees track daily breaks, lunches, or PTO hours.

3 reasons time tracking isn’t just for hourly employees

    1. Overtime violations

Many salaried employees are eligible for overtime under the FLSA. To calculate how much they’re owed, you need to know how many hours they work each week.

    1. Minimum wage violations

If you pay any workers on a piece-rate, rather than an hourly basis, you could be at risk of a minimum wage violation under the FLSA or your state’s labor laws, if you don’t know how many hours they work.

    1. Overtime exemptions

The FLSA’s overtime regulations could be changing. The 2016 proposals were thrown out by a federal judge, but the Labor Secretary has indicated the Labor Department may still revisit the rule — to increase the threshold at which salaried employees become exempt. The only way to be fully prepared for this is to start tracking time today.

Overtime monitoring

No more expensive surprises come payroll! TSheets is an incredibly useful resource for helping you manage overtime effectively within your company. TSheets’ time tracking includes custom overtime alerts, which can be set to notify managers and employees individually as daily or weekly limits approach, keeping everyone on the same page and allowing you to course correct if a problem does arise.

TSheets can help if you're ever audited. An audit log provides accurate, historical data vs. storing paper time cards.

Audit Log

Suits often hinge on claims that wage and hour policies weren’t applied uniformly or correctly. But even if they were applied uniformly or correctly, without proper records, the employer could still be forced to pay up just to settle a dispute. TSheets gives you accurate, complete historical time-data at your fingertips.

And MUCH more.

Not only does TSheets help you comply with the FLSA, but it also streamlines payroll. No more manual data entry, no more duplicate entries, and no more paper timesheet shuffle. What previously took hours now takes minutes! TSheets integrates directly with popular accounting and payroll platforms like QuickBooks, Xero, Gusto, ADP, and more. See them all in our app marketplace.

For business owners who need more than time tracking, TSheets offers simple scheduling tools. Create, share, and edit employee schedules from a desktop or mobile app. TSheets can even help you notify employees if their schedules change. And if your employees need to clock in and out from one location, the TSheets Time Clock Kiosk is optimized for tablets and even uses biometrics and facial recognition.
