Record Keeping

Documentation Required by FLSA:

In order to ensure compliance, accurate records must be maintained for all nonexempt employees. Managers must be sure that all compensable time is tracked. The FLSA requires documentation of the following information:

  • Time and day when the work week begins
  • Hours worked each day
  • Total hours worked each week
  • Basis on which wages are paid
  • Regular hourly pay rate
  • Total daily or weekly straight time earnings
  • Total overtime earnings
  • Additions or deductions from wages
  • Total wages paid each pay period
  • Date of payment and pay period covered by payment


UNC Charlotte has implemented Kronos Workforce Ready as the time and leave reporting system of record for leave-earning employees. This program offers university employees an efficient, effective tool for tracking and reporting key employee data regarding time and leave. This system consistently tracks and monitors time worked and provides consistent application of FLSA rules. Kronos decrease our risk of FLSA noncompliance and increases accuracy of our timekeeping records.
