Risks related to labor law compliance in the retail industry are higher than ever today and retailers are turning to Kronos Incorporated for its Kronos Attestation Tool Kit to help navigate the complex regulatory landscape. The solution provides a simple way for  stakeholders - associates, managers, and corporate - to be engaged in the timecard review and documentation process. The easily configurable solution allows users to review, approve, and reject timecards by using various Kronos data collection devices including time clocks, mobile, tablet, and web platforms, which has resulted in a surge in demand for the solution.

News Facts

  • The Kronos Attestation Tool Kit helps retailers comply with a variety of unique labor law requirements. By providing a way to extend the timecard punching process without customizations, multinational retailers or ones operating in a particular region can fine tune their process without requiring costly and restrictive customizations.
  • The Attestation Tool Kit also helps ensure that retailers can manage more than just meal and break compliance. Questions concerning injuries, fatigue, and schedule effectiveness can be set up in the tool kit and actions can be determined based on the responses. This helps drive employee morale and engagement.
  • Retailers that leverage the tool kit include one of the world's largest internet based retailers; a large, global office supply chain; one of the largest membership based warehouse clubs in the U.S.; a top discount retailer in the U.S.; a leading global home improvement chain; one of the largest department stores by retail sales in the U.S.; a global provider of food, facilities, and uniform services; and a leading U.S.-based organic grocer.
  • With retailers more committed than ever to building stronger relationships with associates, the Kronos Attestation Tool Kit has grown in value as it allows associates to attest to the accuracy of changes and totals before the actual approvals are accepted by the organization. Associates can make these changes themselves through the Kronos solution.
  • The Kronos Attestation Tool Kit offers managers and associates access to a variety of on-demand attestation compliance reports on a daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly basis, alerting managers of rising trends, enabling preemptive action.
