Record-keeping is the process of documenting and maintaining essential employment information, such as hours worked and wages paid.

Effective record-keeping in a workplace means systematically recording details like employees’ hours of work, their wages, leave taken, and other employment-related information. This is important for compliance with legal requirements, ensuring accurate payment and maintaining clear employment records. Good record-keeping helps in resolving disputes, managing payroll efficiently, and provides a transparent account of employment practices.
