Swipeclock created a great example of how a time-keeping system can prevent employers from overpaying employees due to time card approximation (i.e. rounding up).
In a piece by Allen Smith, “Train Managers on Time Sheet Red Flags,” he illustrates the difficulty surrounding the timekeeping of employees. With reference to Lee Schreter (an attorney with Littler Mendelson in Atlanta) he writes that employee timekeeping records are often “highly suspect” when they are so regular. If a person works a regular job 9-5 and takes their lunch at the same time every day, this very well may be the case but according to Smith our common sense should tell us otherwise.
On December 23, 2011, the IRS announced that the Social Security payroll tax cuts, enacted at the beginning of 2011, would be temporarily extended into 2012. Read the entire news release:

- Oregon will increase from $8.50 to $8.80/hr.
- Washington will increase from $8.67 to $9.04/hr.
