How to Manage Time Off During the Holidays with FingerCheck

If you’re a small business owner, balancing work with the holidays can be challenging. Employees will be filtering in and out of the office, and as an employer, it is your responsibility to be accountable for their attendance, and honor any promises you’ve made about paid time off. It’s standard for employers to give employees paid time off on the major federal holidays, though it is not required.

However, it can be difficult to keep track of the holidays and how to allocate pay. Luckily, FingerCheck’s versatile time tracking system allows you to manage holiday time off with ease, and you can be as hands on or hands off as you like.

1. With FingerCheck, you can easily create a holiday policy that holds automatic paid holidays, and add rules that tell the system whether the holiday is a working holiday, whether the employee receives automatic pay, and even whether the employee receives additional pay on top of automatic pay. Creating a holiday policy essentially puts holiday management on auto pilot so that the system knows when and how to allocated holiday time to your staff.

2. Or, if you’d like a more laid-back approach, you can mass enter hours for your employees all at once and select the earning code and earning type to apply.
