Memorandum

TO: All Hourly Employees

FROM: Payroll Administration

SUBJECT: New Time Cards

DATE: November 4, 200X

In order to simplify the reporting of employee working 

hours, the firm will standardize the daily time cards. 

Each card will identify an employee and specify a work 

schedule. The format of the cards will facilitate 

recording of hours; however, you still will calculate 

the total hours worked each day. We will activate the 

new computer program to handle the cards next week. 

Please utilize the new system immediately. If you have 

any questions, we shall be happy to listen to them.
