Time and Attendance systems record when employees start and stop work. However, it is also common to track meals and breaks, the type of work performed, and the number of items produced.
In addition to tracking when employees work, companies also need to keep tabs on when employees are not working: sickness, holiday time, compensation time,…
Some companies also keep detailed records of attendance issues such as who comes in late.
The Time and Attendance system also helps to prepare the payroll.
