Understanding Weekly Overtime with Semi-monthly Pay Periods

November 18th, 2014

TimeClick® offers a smart overtime function for semi-monthly pay periods. If you’re calculating overtime on a weekly basis with a semi-monthly pay period for your employee time cards, you’ll want to read this to avoid confusion.

Overtime calculations can get confusing when you have a semi-monthly pay schedule. In the preferences menu you can set which day of the week your pay period begins. Semi-monthly pay periods begin on a different day each month, so this setting actually tells TimeClick® how to start calculating weekly overtime, but ignores it for the other purposes. For example, if you set the pay period to begin on Sunday, then the program will add up all the hours for an employee between Sunday and the following Saturday. If is the total is greater than the threshold amount (normally 40 hours) the employee will receive overtime. By calculating overtime on a weekly basis, you need a full week’s worth of time to calculate properly. Here is an example of a semi-monthly period where the week begins on a Sunday.




This occurs because in order to calculate the overtime from Sunday to Saturday, the week must be completed. The 1st through the 15th contains part of the week of the 12th-18th. Since this is not a full week, TimeClick® cannot complete the overtime calculation–it doesn’t know how many hours the employee will work on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. This week’s overtime will be calculated on next pay period’s report.

The same situation occurred on last pay period’s report so the overtime for the 28th-4th was carried forward to the 1st-15th.  This does not mean that an employee’s total hours will include the 28th - 30th of September. Instead, TimeClick totals all the hours an employee worked from the 1st-15th. TimeClick® then calculates how many overtime hours the employee had the week of the 28th-4th and the 5th-11th. That total is the number of overtime hours on the report. In order to calculate the regular hours, TimeClick® takes the totals hours, subtracts the overtime hours and the remaining total is the regular hours.

Determining the overtime for semi-monthly pay periods can be confusing and difficult.  If you are still unclear about how to properly calculate overtime please contact us!

Best Time Card Software, TimeClick

July 16th, 2014

“TimeClick is the most efficient program to track your employees’ in and out times” – Top Ten Reviews

TimeClick has been rated the best time card software once again in Top Ten Review’s Time Card Software Review.  Why has TimeClick been rated as the best software?  Here is a quick synopsis.

The TimeClick software installs right on to your computers and the installation only takes about 5 minutes.  Once the software is installed your employee’s clock in and out from their computer replacing your manual punch clock machine or hand written records.

At the end of your payroll period an administrator will login to a secure administration area to print employee time cards or any of the 18 time and attendance software reports.  The software will automatically calculate your employees’ regular and overtime hours.

TimeClick offers a free trial which allows you to download the fully functional version for 30 days, to make sure it meets your company’s needs.

If you need help during the free trial you have unlimited access to our friendly U.S. based support team.  Our customer service has been praised by many reviewers and many users for the quality and helpfulness of the services provided.

Top Ten Reviews declared: “Hawkeye has an outstanding customer service department that is available via email, telephone or live chat.”

TimeClick user Diane wrote; “The support is incredible. TimeClick’s tech support is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and articulate. Compared to all the tech support I deal with, I would say TimeClick has the best.”

The best part is the low price of the software, starting at just $99; TimeClick is a onetime purchase price.  Pricing is based on the number of computers you install the software on and will track an unlimited number of employees on the single computer and network versions of the software.  With no monthly fees, TimeClick is more affordable than any online time tracking application that includes recurring monthly fees.

During our 21 years of developing software we have seen many companies come and go.   We have received phone calls from the frustrated users of defunct competitors who have disappeared.    With our increased growth year after year we will continue to develop great software for our thousands of clients and all the future companies which become TimeClick users giving them software that delivers on all their  needs.

Employee Time Tracking Mistakes

July 9th, 2014

Are you correctly tracking your employee’s time?  Are you making employee time tracking mistakes?  Many employers are making mistakes when deciding whether or not they need to track their employee’s time based on whether their employee is exempt or non-exempt.

Not tracking your non-exempt employee timesheet or not tracking it correctly could lead to lawsuits.   Even if your employee’s don’t work any overtime or very little you should still track their time.  Suzanne Lucas a veteran of corporate human resources and the writer of EvilHrLady.org talks about “Why your boss is tracking every minute?” in one of her recent blog posts.  I’d suggest reading it to make sure you are following the law as an employer and covering your basis to accurately track your employee’s time and protecting yourself as an employer from any lawsuits regarding overtime.

Time Clock Program Review

April 28th, 2014

“I found TimeClick  when I searched for a computerized time clock program online. Customer reviews were very good, so I decided to try the free 30-day trial. Midway through our trial period, a customer service rep checked on us to see how the program was working out for us. Her phone call made me feel even more comfortable with the program. Our team had been using a computerized time clock prior to my purchasing TimeClick. They feel that the TimeClick program is very easy to use and have had very few issues with using it. The purchase price was very reasonable, and as mentioned earlier, the support staff is both helpful and friendly. I am very pleased with this product and can see our company using TimeClick well into the future.”

Libby Latham, Ace Hardware of Gatlinburg, Gatlinburg, TN
