Timecards and Salaried/Exempt employees

by Delores

Is it a common practice to have salaried employees fill out timecards and sign them. Our payroll clerk fills out a timecard sheet for all salaried employees to be used as backup for the pay check.

She only puts the pay period and person's name. The salaried employees refuse to sign the time card because they say it is not needed.

So0-0-0 should they at least sign the time card? The new Treasurer for the church feels that they should have to sign the card????

The only employees who prepare and sign time cards at our church are the nursery workers who are paid at an hourly rate for the actual number of hours worked each month. All other employees (pastor, youth minister, pastor's secretary, janitor, and yard man) are paid a flat salary per month and are not required to turn in time cards.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
