New white-collar workforce technologies are delivering professional, efficient workforce management solutions to salaried workers.
Too often, organizations have focused their compliance efforts solely on their blue-collar workers, ignoring the significant impact that labor laws can have on the white-collar portion of their workforce. From an entrenched belief that salaried employees shouldn’t have to track their time to the general lack of effective, exempt-focused solutions, many companies find themselves potentially exposed to regulatory risk related to their salaried workforce. Without visibility into absence trends, labor costs, and productivity for white-collar workers, achieving and maintaining compliance for your entire workforce will continue to be a complex, ongoing challenge.
It can be very costly to run afoul of compliance laws. Under federal law, an employer can face liability for back wages, taxes, penalties, interest, and attorney fees. Plus, aggrieved employees can seek unpaid wages or overtime for a period going back two years.
The good news is that new white-collar workforce technologies are making it possible to improve workforce management approaches for salaried workers. With flexible solutions that can be used across devices, integration with common workforce productivity tools, and simple recording of employee time in just a few clicks, companies will be better able to measure output, track projects, manage costs, and minimize compliance risk.
