How do you calculate time sheets?
There are two ways to to calculate how many hours your employees worked.
The first is a manual method where you manually enter the clock in time and clock out time for each employee.
The second method is to use a clock in timer that will record the clock in and clock out time for each employee.
To manually calculate the time sheet for an employee:
1) Subtract the difference between the clock in time and clock out time for each day worked
2) Add the total hours worked for each day, remembering to subtract breaks
3) Multiply the total hours worked with the hourly rate of the employee
