Did you know that if an employee on the National Average Wage (£27,200 in 2011) who is paid overtime at Time and a Half exaggerates their weekly overtime claim by just one hour a week this could cost you nearly £1,200 per annum.
The actual administration of timesheets can in itself be time consuming for example: bringing employees in to the depot or branch to collect their daily paperwork and then return it (e.g. work sheets or delivery schedules), involves time and effort - as does the processing of the paperwork after that. Most companies have no way of knowing where their employees are at any time and whether they have done what they were asked to do when they were supposed to do it. Therefore managing the jobs employees perform can be costly and inefficient.
