Construction is seldom a one-size-fits-all type of industry. Most projects require workers with a wide range of skills, certifications, and levels of experience, each with different wage expectations. Managing that variety of pay rates is not a job that can be done easily by hand.

With automated wage management, you can reduce labor costs, increase employee satisfaction, and avoid costly errors. 

 Compliance with regulations and union rules 

Keeping track of the rules and regulations governing the construction industry can seem like a full-time job in itself. That includes state, local, and federal regulations regarding safety, overtime pay, paid sick leave, FMLA management, and more. Union rules also factor heavily into almost any construction company’s plans. Depending on your location and industry, that could involve step-pay rates, shift-based rates, wages based on skills and certifications, and more. 

 Ascentis offers an advanced union rules engine that is easily customizable to your organization’s specific requirements.
