No Time for Keeping Time? Let Us Help!

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) forces businesses to face new time keeping requirements for employees. The “Play or Pay” mandate will make it critical for small businesses to keep accurate track of the actual hours employees work, regardless of what is scheduled. We know that for a busy business-owner, time means money, so let us help you save time, stay profitable, and keep your company compliant.

New Record-Keeping Requirements 

Keeping accurate time records has always been a requirement for your business, but this new mandate makes it absolutely critical. Companies must decide if they will “play,” meaning they will provide benefits for their employees, or “pay” the penalties.

Calculations for this mandate are based on the number of employees and how many hours they work each week. Sounds simple, right? Not exactly. There are many specific rules on how these calculations are determined and those rules rely on the employer knowing exactly how many hours each employee works and when they work them.
