Ensure employee hours are recorded properly with a contactless smart card
Legal expert Chris Wellham, counsel in the employment team at Hogan Lovells, commented on the case of a long-term sick employee who was allowed to carry leave forward automatically and to be paid for all that leave. “This opens the way for employees on long-term sickness absence to claim holiday pay for the whole period of their absence when their employment terminates,” said Wellham. “For an employee who has been absent for two leave years for example, this could represent nearly three months’ pay.”
One method of ensuring employees’ hours are recorded properly is to adopt a contactless smart card clocking system from Tensor. All Tensor cards and key fobs use the same well-proven and reliable RF (Radio Frequency) reading technology. This gives a consistent read range which is unaffected by most external conditions. Our most popular smart card is the T1305, which is approximately the size of a standard credit card and is thin and flexible enough to be carried in your wallet.
