Q. We try to be a flexible workplace and sometimes get requests from employees to work from home for a day or two during school breaks and so on. I don’t have a problem with this for exempt em­­ployees, but what about hourly ones? How do we track that time?

A. For hourly employees, you will need to have the em­­ployees track and document their hours and report to you the number of hours worked. You can require them to track their hours using a particular format or method. You must pay the nonexempt employees for all the hours that they report having worked.
