Mutliple location time keeping or scheduling just took a 180 degree turn to easier than ever before

Over the past decade as cloud software has continued to rise we are still doing many things manually or slower than we would like as software continues to catch up with customer needs.

Multiple location tracking employee time and/or scheduling JUST GOT EASIER

There are no longer any excuses for not going digital, recent changes now allow the faster scheduling. Until now we had to create a location for every job site, while it all worked it was certainly a little time consuming especially if you had dozens or hundreds of job sites.

Now within one location, we can build multiple job sites (locations with a physical address. This also allows all the geo-location triggers to work as they have previously worked against every address of every location.

The Fair Work Commission is introducing changes to the terms of several modern awards which will mean that from 1 March 2020 there will be new obligations on employers paying annual salaries under these provisions. Although these changes will vary slightly from award to award, some of the common changes will require employers to:

  1. Have in place written documentation that records which provisions of the award are intended to be included within the annual salary.
  2. Specify in this documentation the ‘outer limits’ of the number of overtime or penalty rate hours that are included within the annual salary in each pay period/roster cycle.
  3. Where an employee works hours that exceed those ‘outer limits’ in a pay period/roster cycle, pay the employee for those hours worked (at the relevant overtime or penalty rate) within the relevant pay cycle.
  4. Keep records of the start times, finish times and unpaid break times for each employee paid an annual salary, and have employees sign, or acknowledge as accurate, that record in each pay cycle.
  5. Perform an annual ‘reconciliation’ every 12 months, calculated from the commencement of the annualised salary arrangement or upon the termination of the employee’s employment. The annual reconciliation will involve calculating the amount the employee would have been paid if they were paid on an hourly basis in accordance with the award. If there is any shortfall it must be paid within 14 days.

In addition, some awards will require that annual salaries under these provisions can only be paid where employees agree to this arrangement.

Working from home – How can you check in with employees?

Posted on: March 30, 2020 | Categories: Working from home

We have had an explosion of people working from home (WFH) We have had customers call in trying to solve many issues connected with employees WFH even if they are not signing in and out each day. The most popular question currently is what is the best way to set up an employee daily induction/check-in that can be automated and alert of issues? So we went about creating a questionnaire that can be completed online, clever enough to alert management where an employee may be struggling with the working from home environment.

WFH_Daily_Questionnaire_1
Once the questionnaire is created it is simply a case of setting up some alerts based on answers selected, in this example if an employee selects the second option – No, I would like to talk about how I feel. We can create an automatic trigger to alert management when an employee indicates they would like to talk to a person about how they are feeling.
