Time Sheets & Exempt Employees

Answered by: 

Question: 
I have attended several Labor Law Clinics hosted by State of Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. I have specifically asked if every employee, exempt or not, needs to fill out a time sheet. I have always been told that definitely they do. Our President/CEO and I have had many discussions on this subject. What is your opinion on this subject? Thanks for your help.
Answer: 

If that is the law in Wisconsin, then you’d have to comply with it. However, under federal law (FLSA), exempt employees do not have to fill out time sheets (in fact, I have heard it suggested at times that exempt employees should not fill out time sheets, for fear that that could be cited as evidence that they really weren’t exempt). Nor do nonexempt employees have to fill out time sheets under federal law, for that matter, because the regulations impose the recordkeeping requirements (including hours worked) on the employer, not the employee.
