People might not spend much time thinking about the tools they use to log their hours, but it’s a vital part of their professional lives. After all, clocking on and clocking off is how employees ensure they get paid for the work they do, and time-tracking tools and attendance platforms streamline that process for employees.
In recent years, however, innovation in the time-tracking space, one component of HR tech, has chiefly focused on compliance. It’s easy to see why: Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) lawsuits increased by 417% from 1997 to 2017. Other new labor laws and regulations have introduced new subtleties into the way businesses are required to track breaks or overtime, requiring significant investments of time and energy to address.
