For most of us, life changed dramatically nearly one year ago, in March 2020. As the one-year anniversary of the life-changing pandemic nears, you may find you or someone you know hitting a wall. These are challenging times that require extra grace, kindness, and compassion. As a business owner, supervisor, or manager, riding the waves of the pandemic storm also includes maintaining employee engagement. Here’s how you can help your staff stay sane as the pandemic rages on.
Recently, Timesheets.com updated the service to include a notification of any records exceeding a specified value when closing a payroll period. This new feature intends to resolve meal break violations. California, specifically, has a law that requires employees to take a 30-minute lunch break for every 5 consecutive hours worked when the employee works more than 6 hours in a single day. An employer must relieve an employee of all tasks and duties during this meal break period. If the employee does not get a meal break—during which they are relieved of their work duties—for each five consecutive hours worked, a violation occurs. A meal break violation is payable to the employee at the rate of one hour at regular pay. Violation pay does not count towards overtime calculations.
There are many reasons and instances in which a business would need to track employees’ training sessions. Many times, employees need to maintain training to stay up-to-date on changes in their industry or require it for their profession. If you’re tracking your employees’ time online, you should track their training online, too.
