Easily Manage and Prevent Labor Violations

Labor Law Compliance

The Altametrics Clock makes labor law compliance simple. Labor violations and back wage pay can cost your organization millions. Our software ensures that things like breaks and unnecessary overtime are easy to manage. Employees are given the visibility to actively manage their time and managers have the tools they need to hold their staff accountable and labor law compliant.

Eliminate Break Violations

The Altametrics Clock Time Clock Dashboard allows your staff to have the visibility to proactively manage their time. Employees can see directly on the dashboard whether or not they are close to causing a break violation. Additionally, your staff will self-police one another to encourage labor compliance. For example, when a crew member is about to cause a break violation the dashboard will display a countdown that draws attention to let everyone know that a violation is about to occur. This empowers your staff to properly manage their time and increases the accountability for noncompliance. The Altametrics Clock tracks any type of break rule, including paid breaks, unpaid breaks, and break waivers depending on what is needed for each location.

No More Unnecessary Overtime

Overtime hours can be driving up your labor costs. We know overtime hours can be necessary, but if they are not managed properly your labor costs will skyrocket. Overtime hours are often overlooked and treated like a normal hour in the mind of your manager even though the cost is much greater to your business. The Altametrics Clock gives your managers control and insight into overtime hours.

First, the dashboard will indicate the overtime status of each employee who is clocked in, so they will know when they are approaching daily and weekly overtime. The dashboard lets your managers proactively prevent unnecessary overtime by having their staff clock out before they accrue overtime hours.

Second, when your managers are approving your staff’s shift swaps and shift pickups they will have the visibility on each candidate’s projected daily and weekly overtime hours. Managers will no longer make the mistake of giving a shift to an employee who is already expected to accrue overtime hours or if they would accrue overtime hours with the new shift.

Double Time Pay and 7th Consecutive Day Rule

Calculating double time pay can be confusing and costly. The Altametrics Clock solution helps you track when employees are eligible to receive double time pay for the hours they worked. In some states, like California, there are also labor rules that require double time pay when an employee works for seven consecutive days. Regardless of where your business’ locations are, we help ensure that you are in full compliance and pay your staff members appropriately.

Break Enforcement

Back wage pay is costing companies around the world hundreds of millions each year. The poor tracking and enforcement of local labor rules like mandatory meal and rest breaks are the main factors driving up back wage pay. Proper time and attendance enforcement is the first step to reduce these costs. The Altametrics Clock is proven to help everyone in your organization avoid labor law violations better than any other tool on the market. Regardless of where your sites are located, our solution will help prevent unnecessary back wage pay and make sure your staff is taking their breaks at the correct times. Altametrics Clock will ensure that any break that you schedule will be taken, regardless of whether it is a paid or unpaid.

Miscellaneous Labor Rules

The Altametrics Clock solution helps track labor rules that aren’t so obvious or straightforward and only impact certain areas in the country. There are rules like the ACA, Minor Labor rules, Premium Pay (Seattle), Minimum Time Off between shifts, and several more expecting to pop up in the next few years. Many organizations don’t prioritize tracking and enforcing the rules internally and we have seen many brands suffer from lawsuits stemming from this passive approach to labor rule enforcement. The Altametrics Clock gives organizations the tools to proactively manage their employees’ time and enforce the schedules they create.

Control Your Labor Cost

Schedule Enforcement

The perfect schedule can only be perfect if it is properly enforced. The Altametrics Clock solution is the ultimate way to enforce your labor schedules. Controlling your labor costs is critical to your success and our solution gives you control throughout the hierarchy of your staff.

Prevent Early/Late Time Punches

When your employees start their shift early or show up late, it can affect the operational efficiency of your business. Similarly, if they leave their shift early or clock out late, your anticipated labor costs can fluctuate drastically. The Altametrics Clock solution reduces these discrepancies through our standalone time clock. One of the most effective ways we help eliminate this is through the manager authorization feature. For example, if an employee tries to clock in before the set grace period of their shift start time then a manager will need to authorize that they have approved the punch. This way, your employees cannot work extra unapproved hours.

Increase Accountability

Manager authorization also increases accountability by making your management team aware of poor employee attendance practices. No longer will employees be able to slip in late and clock in with no repercussions or demerits. Additionally, employees will need manager authorization to submit a time punch if it is causing a labor rule violation. Depending on the State/City, some of the following rules would include the minimum time off between shifts, earliest start time for a minor, early/tardy clock in, early/late clock out, and when an employee consents to waive their meal break.

Improved Employee Communication

The Altametrics Clock improves communication throughout your organization. Managers can tell their employees that it is time for them to start their break or clock out, improving labor law compliance. Managers will have tools like the broadcast messaging feature that will allow them to tell everyone who is currently clocked in any important information that needs to be communicated.

With the Altametrics Clock Mobile App, all communication between your staff about time and attendance will be centralized and will simplify operations.

Punch Authorization

On the Altametrics Clock Mobile App, employees can authorize their past time punches to let their managers know that the times are correct and payroll for that period can be processed.

The Altametrics Clock will reduce errors when processing payroll and make punch authorization simple.
