HR for Health’s Overtime Tracking Feature!
How does unexpected overtime add up so quickly? Well, it’s simple. When non-exempt employees such as dental hygienists go over 40 hours in a given workweek or your state requires overtime pay when employees work seven consecutive days, a single on-call shift can put you over budget on payroll.
The good news is that there’s a simple solution for keeping a closer eye on overtime, and it doesn’t involve spreadsheets and manual calculations. The HR for Health timekeeping feature empowers you with automated processing and real-time insight into hours worked, so you don’t have to worry about unpleasant payroll surprises.

HR for Health is your partner in all things related to time tracking, and the overtime tracking feature was designed with your needs in mind. Other timekeeping systems ignore compliance, which means you can mess up your overtime calculations without even knowing. That’s a big deal, as the penalties for failure to pay overtime can be costly. For example, in California, you’re liable for double the number of unpaid wages — and triple if not paid within 10 days of a ruling.
Don’t risk your practice’s reputation because of an overtime-related oversight, and don’t disrupt your payroll budget with unexpected overtime expenses. Set up an HR for Health demo today and see the magic in action for yourself!.
