CloudApper hrPad is an iPad/tablet-based time tracking system that can help businesses enforce meal break and rest hour compliance according to Colorado labor law. It allows employees to clock in and out using biometrics or NFC and seamlessly syncs the data with UKG HCM for accurate payroll.

Meal Time Tracking

Employees can easily record their meal breaks using biometrics, pins, or QR codes through the AI TimeClock system. This ensures that employees are taking their required meal breaks and that the time is accurately recorded.
