Employee Tribunal Protection – Time and Attendance Systems
The thought of anyone taking you to tribunal over their treatment during employment is distressing enough.
But knowing that you don’t have the data to back up the fair reasons why you dismissed an employee is even more challenging.
In the UK, employee tribunals will hear claims such as unfair dismissal, breach of contract, discrimination, unlawful deductions from wages, redundancy payments and more.
The tribunal panel consists of an employment judge (who will run the proceedings), an employers’ organisations representative and a person representing employee’s organisations.
During your tribunal, both the employer and the employee will be cross-examined and all evidence taken into account. Once the trial is over a decision will be made that can involve fines, remuneration and more.
How can a Time and Attendance system protect me?
Many of the complaints brought to a tribunal are a ‘she said, he said’ matter. Disagreements over payroll, dismissals, breach of contracts and more can all be substantiated with one valuable asset – reliable data.
But how can you gather data on your employees?
uAttend is a cloud-based time and attendance system that enables you to track hours, report on absence, simplify payroll and store your employee data in the cloud. You can even see employee locations when clocking, to make sure they are where they should be.
Any issues from missed breaks, deductions of pay, holiday allowance and more can all be backed-up by a smart T&A systems data, leaving no room for arguments.
Take a look at the timesheet below for an example:
You can clearly see when an employee was in, what hours they worked, any overtime, sickness etc. in one easy to read document.
Best of all, uAttend costs just £14.99 per month for up to 9 employees and includes functionality such as scheduling, the uAttend App and more at no extra charge.
