A timesheet is used primarily as a basis for calculation of wages based on hourly rates and attendance. It's also used as an employment record in the sense that it forms the detailed employer record of these matters and leave taken by employees. Timesheets also form part of formal business records after use, used by accounts, HR and auditors as statistical information for studies of payroll, attendance trends, sick leave, absenteeism, and other directly related employment issues. Time sheets may be physical sheets, entry on databases, or based on special clocks like flexitime clocks or punch card clocks.
