Leading Labour Law Firm Sees Use of Biometrics as Valuable Compliance Tool for Companies

Actual iD Helping Customers Simplify Compliance Complexity with its Cloud-Based Time and Absence Management Solution

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2015) - Actual iD's cloud-based time and absence management solution leverages biometrics - ensuring employees' true identity is being used for time tracking and compliance purposes.

"We continue to see the use of biometrics rapidly expanding in our everyday lives. In a few short years, the majority of smartphones we all use daily will have biometric readers embedded in them - Actual iD using biometrics for time tracking is simply another example.", remarked Jeff Crews, President of Actual iD Inc.

Actual iD helps its customers deal with many of the top compliance challenges facing employers today. The burden is on the employers to maintain records for the following compliance requirements:

  • Hours worked for hourly employees
  • Hours worked for salaried employees in excess of a regular work day
  • Vacation time and pay

Actual iD remotely and securely stores employee activity data and provides employers the ability to conveniently access the data through a secure login. Producing the necessary employee data for the purposes of generating Record of Employment, responding to an audit or employee inquiry, is a much simplified activity compared to traditional manually intensive processes of the past.

Andrew Ebejer, a lawyer with Sherrard Kuzz, one of Canada's leading employment and labour law firms, considers biometrics to be a useful workplace tool, particularly with respect to monitoring and recording hours of work and overtime. "If properly implemented," says Mr. Ebejer, "biometrics can be a valuable tool to enhance legal compliance with employment standards legislation without violating individual privacy and human rights protections."
