Your employer must keep records of all wages paid and of all hours worked, regardless of where the work is performed. It is a good idea to keep your own record of your employer’s name, address, phone number, and the hours you worked.

We have a free timesheet app you can use with your iPhone to track hours, and a printable work hours calendar in English and Spanish to track your rate of pay, start and stop times, and arrival and departure times.
