In case the term ‘ghost’ employee may be new to you, this will help. A ghost employee is someone documented on the payroll system, but who does not work for the company. This can be a real person who intentionally or not is placed on the payroll, or a fabricated person invented by a dishonest employee. This kind of fraud attacks the payroll system with false employees.
Believe it or not, payroll fraud is a reality. It’s the most prevalent source of accounting and employee fraud. In fact, it’s estimated to happen in about 27 percent of all businesses.
It’s a good and timely thing that FC Construction Services has added ForceCount technology to its growing family of construction site access control, workforce tracking, and labor analytics reporting services.
The smart phone enabled, labor tracking and reporting program operates completely independent of any site access control devices or systems. With seamless integration to employer-controlled time and attendance payroll and project cost accounting systems, ForceCount allows the user to eliminate pen and paper labor tracking across all active construction sites.
“The fact that ForceCount can gather time by scanning workers in and out virtually eliminates any problem of ‘ghosting’ or ‘ghost’ employees,” noted Mark Hinton, Co-Founder and Director, FC Construction Services.
Current FC Construction Services’ clients may opt to receive ForceCount formatted reporting for existing projects in addition to their normal labor analytics reports. Clients can then decide if they would like to subscribe to the ForceCount program for use across all projects. New clients are invited to review ForceCount free for 30 days.
A construction business can survive and thrive while feeling confident they are accurately keeping track of employees using ForceCount. Don’t be haunted by the specter of ‘ghost’ employees. It’s a high cost to pay.
