When it comes to paying your employees, there are many rules and regulations to keep in mind in order to stay in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Chances are, you’re aware of all the statues that regulate wages, overtime pay, and other similar ideas. However, not everything is quite as clearly defined as these, and there is a lot of gray areas that payroll professionals struggle to understand. And, as if this isn’t confusing enough, these guidelines have a tendency to vary somewhat from state to state. As a Michigan-based payroll and HR software company, we at Dominion have all the resources you need to break down some of these regulations in order to make sure you’re ready to process payroll and avoid any fines and penalties that might sneak up on you.
As a payroll software company, we have a few primary objectives here at Dominion Systems: offer the most intuitive payroll software available, keep pricing as affordable as possible for our clients, and above all else, ensure all sensitive information held within our servers is kept as secure as possible. We manage all of these objectives by having a team of dedicated employees that are constantly working to keep us ahead of the curve. For instance, we’ve recently made the decision to switch to pressure seal forms in order to improve the efficiency of our check delivery and increase the protection of confidential information.
Leave Management Also Known As Time Off
Now, if you are not using our Time & Attendance system, we do have an entire Leave Management tool that I'd like to show you here real quick. I'm going to log out as Julie Andrews. I'm going to log in as Jane Doe. Jane Doe is my company admin. As we log in here, I'm going to move over to my Company tab and go to Leave Management and this is where I have the ability to run reports and check statuses and approve leave time for my employees. Now, if supervisors have access to the system, they will only see their employees, whichever employees they're attached to or whichever departments are assigned to them.
Good morning Everyone and welcome to today's presentation on Dominion System’s Time Off software. My name is Claire Manz and I’m your product strategist here at Dominion. For those of you who don't know me, I hope I can meet you soon. Today I'd like to walk you guys through a couple of the different sections of our Time Off platform. We have an employee side that I'd like to start with so we can get a feel for what the employee can do, how they can request their own time off, how they can manage their own time from that portal through our Employee Self Service section of our system, but then also how either an administrator or a supervisor has access to manage their employees time and approve that time and manage the employee time from the supervisor or administration side. It's very simple to use and I'm very excited for those of you who don't have this piece to be able to utilize it.

All these tasks are important and there is no way around them, but luckily, there are ways to make those tasks easier and streamline your processes.
Running a restaurant or bar is time-consuming, demanding and stressful. What if I told you a payroll and HR software can simplify your everyday HR tasks? I am in the marketing department at Dominion Systems, a payroll and HR SaaS (Software as a Service) company, but I also have about 10 years of experience working in the food and beverage industry. I’ve worked at multiple restaurant locations and received multiple promotions enabling me to work in different departments ranging from front of house positions, to marketing manager, to floor manager, allowing me to see many aspects of what goes into running a restaurant. I wanted to put my experience from both industries together to bring you value, which is why I’m going to share how a payroll and HR software can be valuable to your company in the food and beverage industry.
I spend a lot of time preaching about the importance of Payroll and HR Software in the business world. After all, most businesses would certainly benefit from a seamless connection between their payroll, time and attendance, and hr software. However, the total cost of it all is simply too much to expect for many businesses, so it becomes necessary to pick and choose the features you best feel would benefit you. That being said, there is often a difference in opinion between who will benefit most from the software and who makes the final decision.
Staying compliant is an important part of any business, no matter the size. Because your HR department deals with a variety of issues on a daily basis, staying compliant becomes a bigger responsibility for them in particular. Being aware of the most common compliance issues allows your HR department to prevent any problems if your company were to get audited. There are specific guidelines and regulations that your HR staff should follow in order to stay compliant such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, Federal Civil Rights, and so on. Make sure your HR staff is aware of all these and are following them correctly. There are many compliance issues that your HR staff might have to face at some point and I would like to address 3 of them in this blog that you might find helpful, regardless of whether you are new to HR or experienced.
