Labor Compliance and Time Tracking

A SURVEY OF HR AND FINANCE PROFESSIONALS

Introduction

Government regulations like the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) require meticulous record keeping to track activities, and extensive documentation to prove compliance. Difficulties in interpreting laws, a lack of processes, and widely varying regional requirements all combine to make compliance with labor regulations a struggle for many organizations. But how concerned are organizations about labor governance? And who has the greatest exposure?

The following report, sponsored by Replicon, is based on a survey of 204 HR, finance, and other professionals with responsibility for labor compliance. The goal of the survey, conducted in October 2013, was to quantify the challenges with labor compliance, as well as the benefits of cloud time tracking in meeting regulatory requirements
