Minimum Wage

How Can Legion Help with Minimum Wage Changes

Legion Workforce Management (WFM) Software allows employers to load minimum wages for cities and states. Legion WFM uses that wage to help managers comply with local laws by only giving employees shift offers for locations where their pay rate is greater than the minimum wage. Additionally, when managers manually add shifts for employees at other locations, Legion WFM automatically flags shifts when there may be a pay-rate violation based on the minimum wage.

Employee Leave Law Updates

In January 2024, some states will require employers to make changes to their employee leave.

How Can Legion Help With Employee Leave Law Updates?

With the Legion Time Off Management module, employers can effortlessly configure accrual distribution methods and quantities in Legion WFM Control Center. This means you have complete control over how time off is earned and allocated within your organization. The accrual rules are extremely flexible, where the rules for specific time off reasons are configured at the employee group level. This level of customization allows you to tailor your time off policies to suit the unique needs of your workforce.

In addition to setting up accrual rules, Legion WFM lets clients define which pay types contribute to the accrual total. This feature empowers you to seamlessly align your time off accruals seamlessly with your payroll processes, ensuring accuracy and efficiency.
