Automated workflows ensure overtime compliance management
Hamra Enterprises relies on the Nintex Advanced Workflow to manage overtime and stay compliant
As the owner of more than 163 franchise restaurants in five states, Hamra Enterprises had grown rapidly to employ more than 5,000 people. However, the company’s core HR business processes remained largely manual. Under its legacy process, employees filled out hardcopy timesheets and then sent them to HR.
A labor-intensive timesheet collection and entry process demanded a fast and easy way for HR to manage employee overtime processing in order to comply with changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that affected tax regulations for employee overtime.
In November 2016, Hamra Enterprises was already in the process of deploying a new payroll system, but that system’s time and attendance module would have cost an extra $30,000 and months to implement. The regulations took effect on December 1, 2016, and they could not afford the extended implementation period, especially when their main goal was to digitize and streamline processes and efficiently meet government tax regulations. In search of a solution that did not tax Hamra’s Enterprises IT team, and that could be implemented within weeks, SharePoint Administrator, Cory Ostroski, turned to Nintex Advanced Workflow.
