Employee time theft is a pervasive issue faced by organizations of all sizes and industries. Often insidious in nature, it can erode a company’s profitability, hinder productivity, and damage workplace morale. While there are numerous time and attendance solutions available, many organizations are using cutting-edge solutions like UKG. However, using the CloudAoper AI TimeClock can help UKG users prevent employee time theft effectively – reducing losses and streamlining workforce management. That being said, let’s take a look at what employee time theft is, how it impacts businesses, and the benefits of using the CloudApper AI TimeClock for UKG users.

Understanding Employee Time Theft

Employee time theft occurs when employees fraudulently manipulate their working hours to receive compensation for time they did not actually work. Employee time theft can occur via different means, some of the common ones are as follows.

Buddy Punching

This is a common form of time theft where one employee clocks in or out on behalf of a colleague who is not present. It often involves sharing access cards or login credentials to deceive the attendance system.

Extended Breaks

Some employees may take longer breaks than allowed, essentially getting paid for the time they spend outside the workplace.

Falsifying Hours

Employees may manually alter their time records to show that they worked longer hours than they actually did.

Ghost Employees

In more severe cases, businesses may unknowingly pay employees who do not exist or who have left the company.

Why It’s Crucial To Prevent Employee Time Theft

Employee time theft is problematic for several reasons – some of the common issues organizations face are as follows:

  • Financial Impact: It directly affects a company’s finances by inflating labor costs. When employees are compensated for unworked hours, it results in unnecessary expenses.
  • Operational Disruption: Time theft disrupts operational efficiency by distorting attendance records. This can lead to improper resource allocation and assigning HR personnel to identify the issues – affecting overall productivity.
  • Mistrust and Decreased Morale: Time theft fosters a culture of mistrust among employees and management. When some employees engage in dishonest practices, others may follow suit or become demotivated, damaging team cohesion and morale.

To address the challenges posed by time theft, many organizations turn to time and attendance solutions. UKG, known for its robust workforce management solutions, offers a comprehensive platform for tracking employee time and attendance.
