2019 State of Time Tracking Report

December 30, 2019

The Department of Labor announced a significant change to the overtime rule that makes over a million more American workers eligible for overtime. The rule increases the annual earning threshold for overtime eligibility to $35,568 annually ($684 per week). Previously, the overtime eligibility threshold was $23,660 annually ($455 per week).

With this change going into effect on January 1, 2020, it’s more important than ever for salaried workers to start tracking their time on the clock carefully.

TSheets by QuickBooks commissioned a survey to find out more about how employers and employees—both hourly and salaried—use time tracking at work. The survey also asked them to weigh in on the then-proposed, now-passed overtime rule.*

1 in 6 employees is still using paper timesheets

For employers, tracking time is integral to the business. Knowing how much employees worked on projects helps employers make better business decisions. Almost 73% of business owners surveyed said they have employees who track time. And that’s not just hourly employees.

But tracking time is one thing. Accurately tracking time is another.

Of the employees surveyed, 1 in 6 is still using paper timesheets, which are more error-prone than smarter technology, like a mobile time tracking app. Just 13% of all employees who track their hours are using such technology.

81% of employees say they track time to ensure an accurate paycheck

Business owners told us that the majority of their employees are recording time to track their billable hours. But 81% of employees, whether hourly or salaried, reported that they’re keeping an eye out on their hours worked to make sure they’re getting paid what they’re owed.

 

However, 15% of employers say their workers don’t keep track of hours, and another 12% aren’t sure if their employees are tracking time.

 

For employees, time tracking helps prevent wage theft. And for employers, it helps prevent time theft. Time tracking is symbiotic for businesses.

1 in 5 employees can’t correct errors on their timesheets

More than a third of all employees surveyed (33%) said that errors occur on their timesheets at least once a month. But 21% can’t go in and correct those errors after they’ve submitted their time.
Among employee respondents, more salaried employees can make edits to their timesheets than hourly employees. Of course, things like time tracking apps with features like geofencing can help reduce those timesheet errors.

What employees say about GPS time tracking apps

Previous TSheets research found that some GPS-enabled time tracking apps may be tracking workers 24 hours a day, which has potentially serious legal implications. The latest survey confirms that 24% of workers who use a mobile time tracking app believe it is always tracking their location. But more employees are confident the GPS feature on their time tracking app is only tracking them while they’re on the clock or not at all.

1 in 5 employees working off-hours doesn’t get paid for their time

Of the 1,319 employees who took part in the survey, 67% said they spend some time working outside of their normal hours every week. And while 74% of these are always or sometimes compensated for this work, 21%, said they are never paid for this work. This is a potential violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
32% of employees do not work outside of normal office hours.

Most employers give workers breaks—but not all breaks are paid

Just 3% of employers surveyed said they do not allow employees to take breaks during the workday. But of the 93% who said they do, 16% said they do not pay for rest breaks or lunch breaks. More worryingly, 34% said they automatically deduct time from employee paychecks, which could lead to off-the-clock work or wage theft.
