Microsoft office email has a handy little appointment maker for this reason =]. We get hate mail if we forget to approve our hours

I can relate somewhat on this.  My FH has a salaried position so he gets a set amount every 2 weeks, but he also does a lot of travel that he has to turn in expense reports on each week or so depending on how may trips to certain places he ahs made.  I get SOO frustrated when he forgets to submit them or be just puts them off.  Those checks pay our CC bill since he trys to put all the trip on the CC so we can pay bills as usual from our accounts.  He has gotten better though by using Microsoft Money, and using his appointment book that is attached to his email for reminders.

Thats crazy!!  I have a reminder in my work calendar to submit my timesheet.  Can you ask him to set that up? 

I know it would be a pain, but can you maybe add it to your calendar and then try to remind him that morning?

Something similar to this happens to me nearly every other week – seriously! I’m always scrambling on the Friday or Sunday before they have to be approved to log all of them in – and that’s only after I get reminded by my boss. I’m terrible with it … just not something I’m always good on doing.

I agree with Daisybride – it may just be a good idea to add it to your calendar/set an alarm on your phone/set an alarm on his phone even? to remind him!

Does he have a work e-mail that you might be able to send a nice email

saying hey honey! don’t forget to do your timesheet. or something?

 

Than  he’ll see it at work and than he can do it than….well, hopefully! He won’t put it off to later.

also second: cell phone alert. It is how I remember my phone conference meeting every week.

I agree with floridabeachbride.  I think either an email, cell phone alert, or maybe even a text message if he can receive them at work reminding, sweetly of course, that he needs to submit his hours so you have money for bills!

i have to turn in my hours at work ( it is really annoying as I was used to salary or at least a time clock!).  But there are few enough people here that our payroll person hunts us down if she doesn’t have the time sheets in time!

That’s frustrating though!  I’m sorry.  Hopefully you can set up a reminder system, and your Fi learned his lesson!

I don’t know if it differs state to state, but I do payroll for a company in Vermont, and we aren’t allowed to NOT pay someone if we know they worked. We have to hound them for their time sheet and if we still don’t receive their hours, we have to assume a “normal” work schedule, and fix any mistakes the next pay period.

I threaten people that they won’t get their check, but its an empty threat since I technically have to pay them. They don’t know that though, so don’t tell them ^_~

Maybe he needs to set an alarm on his cell phone to remind him? Also, google calendar will send you a text message on your phone to remind you if you set one up. Or he could use Outlook for a reminder… or buy the guy a calendar… in this day and age there is really no excuse for this to be happening?

Bon Chance,
