Attestation allows employers to ask employees specific questions, like whether they took their meal break or followed safety protocols before or after their shift. Employees confirm their answers, creating a documented record for compliance purposes. For example, employees may need to attest that they took their meal breaks when punching out. In this article, we will discuss how to set up attestation in UKG Pro and discuss CloudApper AI TimeClock for easy attestation.
