DOL Launches New Timesheet 'App' for Workers

Employees can now keep track of their hours on their iPhone thanks to a new timesheet application. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) launched its first‘app’ for smartphones, a timesheet to help employees independently track the hours they work and determine the wages they are owed.

For a Limited Time receive a FREE Compensation Market Analysis Report! Find out how much you should be paying to attract and retain the best applicants and employees, with customized information for your industry, location, and job. Get Your Report Now!

Available in English and Spanish, users can easily track regular work hours, break time, and overtime hours for one or more employers. Glossary, contact information, and materials about wage laws are easily accessible through links to government web pages.

Additionally, users will be able to:

  • Add comments on any information related to their work hours.
  • View a summary of work hours in a daily, weekly and monthly format.
  • E-mail the summary of work hours and gross pay as an attachment.

Now, workers now can keep their own records instead of relying on their employer’s records. The DOL noted that this information could prove invaluable during a Wage and Hour Division (WHD) investigation when an employer has failed to maintain accurate employment records.

Currently, the app is compatible with the iPhone and iPod Touch. DOL will explore updates that could enable similar versions for other smartphone platforms, such as Android and BlackBerry, and other pay features not currently provided for, such as tips, commissions, bonuses, deductions, holiday pay, pay for weekends, shift differentials and pay for regular days of rest.

For workers without a smartphone, the WHD has a printable work hours calendar in English and Spanish to track rate of pay, work start and stop times, and arrival and departure times. The calendar also includes easy-to-understand information about workers’ rights and how to file a wage violation complaint.

Both the app and the calendar can be downloaded from the Wage and Hour Division's home Web page.
