Well I was writing it as the pop up appeared so now I have to write it all over lol
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I work for a federally funded health Care center. Employees refuse to clock in and out. I work in payroll so I have to chase down time sheets every week. My question, should I just go ahead and pay the hourly employees their 80 hours and not worry about the actual hours? I am constantly having to write checks to employees the next day so they receive all of their paycheck. This has been on going for years.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
management will not discipline employees regarding clocking in and out so I am stuck having to write checks. And yes, I am looking for another job already.

Hourly employee cannot be paid until you confirm hours to avoid an underpayment or an overpayment.
