Over the years, employees in the United States have fought to increase the federal minimum wage to $15/hr with many political leaders joining in the effort. The federal minimum wage has remained at $7.25/hr since 2009 and studies show that roughly two-thirds of Americans support an increase. With the new makeup of the Senate this year, this long-overdue increase is looking more likely than ever. In the meantime, many individual states have continued to increase their minimum wages in order to keep up with the cost of living in their regions.

It’s easy to mistype data when you’re manually entering time records into a payroll system by hand. If you’ve made payroll mistakes in the past, you’re not alone. Studies by the American Payroll Association show us that approximately 40% of business owners make payroll mistakes annually. This results in an average of $845 in IRS penalties every year. In order to avoid this, many business owners have invested in online time tracking services that calculate records automatically. This type of software transfers your employees’ time records to payroll and accounting software platforms with ease, avoiding the need to enter time manually. If you’re manually entering data every pay cycle and you’ve made a payroll mistake, you might wonder how to handle it and, more importantly, when you need to handle it. We can help.
