Smartphone App to Benefit Employees

The Department of Labor released a new app, called DOL Timesheet, which will allow employees to create their own wage records by tracking their hours (including regular, overtime, and break hours). The app was created as part of the Obama Administration's initiative to enhance control of wage and work hours. The purpose of the app is to help employees when they have been denied their earned pay from employers. The app is available to download on the DOL website.

For employees without a smartphone, the DOL has a printable work hourscalendar to track rate of pay and hours.
