Time

LightWork Time is a time and attendance program designed for companies with single or multiple locations and easily accommodates remote employees. Both managers and employees can input employee time at intervals specified by your company. Time can be entered via desktop punch, kiosk punch, or biometric/swipe timeclock. Time can be tracked in lump sums or in ranges of specific hours worked. Earning types for these hours are fully user definable and can be assigned types such as regular, paid time off, or sick time. Rules to identify and calculate overtime are built into the system eliminating the possibility of overtime coding errors.

Once all time from a location has been entered, the site manager can save and approve all time entered as complete. If an employee works in multiple locations, multiple site managers can input and approve time for the same employee.

HR can then see which locations have approved time for that pay period and which locations are still awaiting approval. HR can initiate an export file from LightWork Time to be imported into your payroll system for any approved timesheets.
