Many non-profits have a lot of work to do and very little money with which to do it. We hear about their struggle all the time. Just last week we received a message from a women’s care center asking if we offer non-profit pricing. They, like many other non-profits like them, need all the help they can get.
Without discounted pricing on many day to day services that most companies can afford, non-profits would go out of business and would no longer be a part of our community.
A happy community depends on the work of non-profits and we are happy to say that we assist many of them.

Where is your company headed? Take a second to think back at the last few months or years and go over everything you’ve accomplished. You may have grown by leaps and bounds and accomplished more than you ever imagined.
Now ask yourself: is this what you really wanted in the first place?
Just because you quit using paper time sheets and now record everything online, you don’t have to lose the security of employee signatures. You can still print out employee timecards the old fashioned way or your can simply have your employees electronically sign each record on their time sheet.
With electronic signatures, each record is stored with the employee verification attached to it.
The FLSA has laws regulating overtime pay but not double time pay. They do stipulate that employers are not barred from offering double time pay, but that it is not a requirement on a federal level.
Double time pay, however, is required in certain instances in the state of California.
This is a common question among employers and employees alike. If an employee takes 8 hours of vacation or PTO on a week where he works more than 32 hours in that week, will those hours over 40 be counted as overtime?
The answer is no. Overtime is calculated only on actual hours worked and not simply the hours on the timecard. If the employee doesn’t physically work 40 hours in the week, then he/she should not be paid overtime.
For many businesses, tracking time on the go is essential. Employees who work in the field might not want to stop by the office just to clock in. Busy employees aren’t always near a desktop computer. And employees who travel for business need to track their time and expenses while away from the office.
And then there are other companies whose employees never leave the office. They prefer having restrictions in place ensuring that their employees never clock in or out from anywhere else.

Calculating paid time off can seem daunting to a busy small business owner. There are many rates to choose from and the calculations aren’t always intuitive. For this reason, most small business owners just end up using a yearly accrual rate. It’s easy – you just have to decide how many days employees should get per year and give it to them in a lump sum. But there are other accrual rates which might be useful for your company. I am going to help you tackle the math.
