How do you keep track of construction employees’ hours?

Like any industry, there are two major ways to track employees’ hours worked.

  • You can record employees' hours using paper or an Excel spreadsheet, an option often favored by smaller businesses and independent contractors. However, this manual method can be labor-intensive and carries a higher risk of calculation errors.
  • Opt for a payroll and HR software solution. With cloud-based software, employees can clock in via their self-service portal, and with GPS capabilities the software can adhere to overtime and break rules. Additionally, clocking in through a kiosk is another available option. 
How do construction workers get paid?
arrow down icon

Constructions workers are often paid either hourly or in one lump sum. Constructions workers who are paid hourly punch in once they start work and punch out once completed. Hourly pay also comes with overtime pay, which is in line with federal and state laws. Workers can be paid in one lump sum for an entire project. So, the money made from the project is paid in one payment.
