Attendance on Demand Releases White Paper Discussing Compliance Challenges for the Hospitality Industry
Attendance on Demand announces the release of the white paper: "Avoid Compliance Issues: Challenges in Today's Hospitality Industry." This white paper summarizes how the hospitality industry can avoid non-compliance allegations with a robust time and attendance system.
The Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division has targeted the hospitality industry as a potential source of federal violations. Such violations include overtime, minimum wage, record-keeping under the Fair Labor and Standard Act (FLSA), medical leave approval and tracking under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and also compliance measures under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) beginning of 2015.
"These significant challenges make this tough-to-work industry even more difficult," said Beth Baerman, Director of Corporate Communications at Attendance on Demand. "With a reliable time and attendance system, these challenges can be handled efficiently and accurately."
For example, FLSA, FMLA, and PPACA based features can help streamline compliance by calculating FLSA overtime, tracking FMLA leave eligibility, and tracking full-time employee status. Flexible time definitions can allow 24/7 businesses to customize their workday. Reporting functionality can provide custom and predefined reporting to provide accurate summaries of attendance data for seasonal employees.
This white paper contains useful information that can help hospitality employers understand and comply with the new PPACA mandates.
