Monitoring Staff Time Off -
A Manager's Nightmare?
By Janet Salopek, ICD.D, CPHR
s a manager, how often are you frustrated by the amount
of time you invest in keeping track of your staff's time
- overtime, holidays, sick leave, workers compensation
and leaves of absence? The amount of time you spend managing
your staff's time may have you searching for solutions that make
time tracking a more efficient and simple process.
Without clear time-off policies, time-tracking processes and
accurate records of time worked, organizations risk employee
complaints, audits/fines from the government, and potential
lawsuits on unfair compensation practices. So what are managers to do to ensure they don't put their employers at risk but
also don't over complicate and micro-manage employees' time,
especially employees who always manages to get their work
done? Communicate your intent, be clear on expectations, keep
it simple and automate the time keeping process.
