Make Sure Employees Are Turning In Their Time Cards
Late time cards are a problem for all types of companies.
But they shouldn’t be.
Why Are On Time, Accurate Time Cards Critical?
Accurate, on time timesheets:
- Are necessary to pay your staff members
- Are necessary to bill your clients
- Are necessary to allocate time and resources
- Are legally mandated by the Department of Labor (DOL)

Train Employees On Time Card Submission
Even with a timekeeping system, you can’t neglect training. Instruct thoroughly during onboarding. Send weekly reminders. Make it part of their performance review.
Remember, submitting accurate timesheets by each pay period deadline is an essential job role. Period.
While we’re on the subject of time cards, let’s address the legal issues.
Do I Have To Pay When An Employee Doesn’t Turn In A Timesheet?
Yes. You can’t withhold pay. Under federal and state wage and hour laws, it’s your responsibility to track staff members’ hours.
What If Someone Doesn’t Submit Their Timesheet?
When a staff member doesn’t turn in a time card, estimate from their past time cards or shift schedules.
Remember that you will have to make up for it next time you run payroll. Hopefully, you will have their accurate timesheet by then.
Record your efforts to get the employee to turn in their hours. Save emails or texts. The paper trail will safeguard you in case they allege underpayment.
