The company’s time and absence management solution helps its customers adhere to many of the compliance challenges facing employers, including maintaining records for key compliance requirements.
These include hours worked for hourly employees, hours worked for salaried employees in excess of a regular work day, and vacation time and pay.
“We continue to see the use of biometrics rapidly expanding in our everyday lives,” said Jeff Crews, president of Actual iD Inc. ” In a few short years, the majority of smartphones we all use daily will have biometric readers embedded in them – Actual iD using biometrics for time tracking is simply another example.”
Actual iD remotely and securely stores employee activity data, enabling employers to easily access the data through a secure login.
Using Suprema biometric readers, Actual ID’s system helps employers manage the true identity of their employees through biometrics, and eliminates keys, time cards and PINs. The system also prevents fraud by cutting out time theft and ‘buddy punching’.
Andrew Ebejer, a lawyer with Canadian employment and labor law firm Sherrard Kuzz, considers biometrics to be an effective tool in the workplace, particularly in terms of monitoring and recording hours of work and overtime.
“If properly implemented biometrics can be a valuable tool to enhance legal compliance with employment standards legislation without violating individual privacy and human rights protections,” said Ebejer.
Crews and Ebejer recently hosted a webinar entitled “At Your Fingertips: How Workplace Laws Impact Biometrics”, which addresses biometrics and compliance.
Previously reported, Actual iD deployed Entertech Systems’ BioConnect as its identity platform to manage biometric templates for the company’s cloud-based time and attendance application.
