Time Keeping - Cost Accumulation
A labour cost control routine should ensure that payments are paid only to employees who have spent time at the work place and that payments are at agreed rates of pay including overtime premium and shift premium payments where relevant. Where a staff is paid a fixed sum for an agreed length of working week, it may be decided via a check via the supervisor such the employee is at work is all such is necessary. Where the employee is being paid at the rate per hour for the time spent at work together along with premium rates for overtime work, it is as such a detailed record of time spent on the premises is required. This is done via having the employee to register his departure and arrival times.
