Retail Time and Attendance / Workforce Management Solutions

Automated Attendance Policies and Attendance Tracking for Retail Employees

Retail organizations often have employees working around the clock. Retail employees may receive shift differential and premium pay for working at certain times of the day or week. Keeping track of these wage changes can be cumbersome and error prone.
To help retail stores, supermarkets, and organizations staying compliant with complicated labor laws, Jantek Electronics’ Time and Attendance / Workforce Management solution provide an automated solution, with configurable pay rules, to improve productivity of retail workers’ employee timekeeping and attendance tracking.

Manage Compliance with Wage and Hour Regulations, and California Meal Break Rules

According to the FLSA, nonexempt employees must receive at least the federal minimum wage plus time-and-a-half for every hour worked over forty total hours in a workweek. For California workers, our clients configure the system to support daily overtime:
  • 1.5 times the employee’s regular rate of pay for all hours worked more than eight hours up to and including 12 hours in any workday, and for the first eight hours worked on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek; and
  • Double the employee’s regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 12 hours in any workday and for all hours worked over eight on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek.
Some of our clients uses Jantek’s Face Reader time clock and Time and Attendance System to systematically manage meal breaks and meal break penalty pay. “Have you taken a meal break today?” A non-compliant meal break penalty is automatically entered into a qualified employee’s timecard if this employee responds NO to the break questionnaire using Jantek’s time clock.

Please note that on July 15, 2021, California Supreme Court rendered a decision that “regular rate of compensation” like “regular rate of pay” encompasses all non-discretionary payments in addition to the hourly rate of pay in Ferra v. Loews Hollywood Hotel, LLC.

Automated Accrual Leave Management and Leave Tracking for Retail Employees

In addition to using Jantek’s timekeeping solution to automate and streamline management their attendance pay policies, they also use Jantek’s paid time off (PTO) feature, Accrual Management, to streamline their accrual processes and track various leave policies for vacation, personal time, and sick hours.
