    Question:
    As an employer, are we required (state/federal law) to have employees sign their time-cards? Is a signature field required?

    We're trying to setup an electronic process for employees to email timecards to supervisors via company email account. In the past, we completed time-cards and signed manually. Now, since we made the time-card entry process electronic...I wondered if the employee signature was a requirement.

    If signatures are required, could we use electronic signatures? I'd appreciate any insight on this topic, as I want to be sure we're in compliance. Thank you in advance for your time.

    Signatures are not required by law. They are a good idea for many reasons, but they are not mandatory.
