CASE STUDY ¬ Using the information in the fact sheet, please answer the below questions. 1. A FT-salaried employee paid semi-monthly starts on 9/7/12. For how many hours should the employee be paid on the 9/15/12 payroll? The pay date actually gets pushed up to 9/14/12 since 9/15/13 falls on a Saturday.
Utiliscan can also update the employee description, just in case the workload does become heavier due to the new changes. Employee working conditions is another issue that the employees were least concerned about; employee working conditions would include the cleaning services, the bathrooms, vending machines, and cafeteria services. It is a problem that the employees are not supervised when doing their job; this could be why the employees think their workloads are adequate. 78% of the employees were satisfied with their working conditions and they enjoyed freedom and flexibility to perform their jobs with out strict supervision. As companies begin to acquire challenges in the business environment of the new millennium, this gives an ever-increasing reason for success; which lies in the function of effective human resource management.
These regulations apply, even if your payroll is manual. Things You'll Need • Time sheets/time card • Form W-4 • IRS Circular E Show (4) More Instructions 1. o 1 Pay applicable workers based on their timekeeping data. Most likely you require hourly workers to use a time clock or to complete weekly time sheets. Pay them according to what the timekeeping system indicates. For instance, say the pay schedule is biweekly and the employee earns $9/hour.
1.3 It is important to prioritise targets and set realistic timescales to avoid disappointment and poor work performance. I use an online scheduling system leankit.com that helps you view your workload at a glance to support a working structure on a daily, weekly, monthly basis, and so keep track of productivity and any delays that may be occurring. 1.4 Most work related problems generally come down to a lack of resources, or people. Should the issue be an absent member of staff that you rely on to support your task, in our small organisation we have no option but to carry on with out them if the timescale is urgent or potentially we may be able to delay the task. If the issue is resource related such as IT/communication issues, then thankfully I am the IT person in the office and I should be able to resolve it, however I would note the delay
In this particular case, this tool identifies daily hassles and the rate of burnout that call center employees undergo(Visser, 2009). The tool evaluates factors such as work overload, pressure, demands from management, repetitive nature of the work, and lack of supervisor and co-worker support(Visser, 2009). The tool also measures daily hassles on a personal level (Visser, 2009). People who participated in this study were given time off during their work day to complete questionnaires in order to ensure a good response(Visser, 2009). The tool is inexpensive and requires little time to complete.
In the past workers were not getting paid properly and forced to work long hours for little pay. Another aspect of FLSA is the difference between paying an employee overtime or, giving comp time to the employee that has worked over 40 hours for the work week. The importance and the main responsibility of the financial managers are to ensure the employee is getting paid properly for his or her time and if not figure out the reason. The responsibility of the first-line managers is to ensure that the employee is doing his or her work correctly in order for him or her to get paid properly for the work completed.

A3) So that employers and employees are protected and not taken advantage and also for health and safety to themselves and others around them. Task B. B1) I am employed as a Care Assistant and my duties and responsibilities may vary. My start of employment was the 29th of january 2012 my employment is not fixed term, my contract of employment is terminable by written notice of 2 weeks by the company and to the company. I am contracted to work 40hrs a week any more then that will be classed as overtime. I am paid by salary and payments will be made straight to my chosen bank account.
Therefore, as long as a set number of hours is worked, an employee's productivity should not be any different then if they worked an eight hour day. Sometimes when people work eight hour days, they are doing personal things during the work hours anyway. I think that if someone works less, they may be more dedicated to getting their work accomplished instead of also focusing on personal reqiurements. In reference to company effectiveness, I think it depends on how flexible the employer is, whether they are too flexible. If an employer is too flexible, then the business may have no true structure.
Many of the tasks that I am assigned have an official end date and have to be done, there are not a lot of extensions. Without organization, files can get misplaced, data is lost and clients get angry causing me to lose work time and potentially miss a deadline. According to Philpot (2011), time management is all about planning the day in order to make the best use of time. Being able to plan out a project with proper time management skills keeps my stress level down by giving me a schedule to stick to and small deadlines to meet along the way. This keeps the work load manageable by not getting tasks backed up.
Taking care of yourself, communicating effectively, and working on time management will ultimately allow individuals to beat the stress at work. Limiting stress can be as simple as just taking care of yourself. According to a report by Attitudes in the American Workplace IV more than a third of workers (35%) say their jobs are harming their physical or emotional health and 42% say job pressures are interfering with their personal relationships; half say they have a more demanding workload this year than last. (The American Institute of Stress, n.d.) So it’s important to take care of yourself so as not to let the stress harm you physically or emotionally. Make sure to get plenty of rest.
