While time clocks have already proven valuable in aiding contact tracing, new evolutions of clocks include thermal scanners and COVID-19 symptom questionnaires. You can also leverage touchless punch-in options like facial or palm recognition to keep your clock squeaky-clean. This helps to stop any viruses at the front door, further protecting the team inside.
Digital access provides the added convenience of both current and past electronic pay statements and tax forms being available to your workforce 24/7. Admins can say goodbye to one-off requests throughout the year! The electronic formats are identical to the typically-received paper copies, and if printed copies are ever required, Payworks Employee Self Services (ESS) provides employees with that ability at any time.
First and foremost, it’s important to stay connected—no matter how far apart you are, physically, from one another. Social connection nurtures good mental health, collaboration and teamwork. The positive challenge with a virtual team is how to get more creative in the delivery of this connection.
In order to encourage and support a healthy workforce, employers should consider whether they’re unknowingly placing an added burden on certain employees with the implied demand to be available 24-7. Ultimately, this extra work may also accrue overtime. The best way to avoid potential legal liabilities is to ensure the organization has appropriate policies and procedures in place, and that the method for tracking overtime or off-site work is established and communicated to all employees.
What's the best process using Payworks? We recommend switching the employee to “Final Pay” status. This way, the employee’s last payroll run is processed, and they’re automatically moved to “Terminated” status and their ROE will have begun processing within the system.
