The Justworks Hours integration is an all-in-one solution for customers to access time tracking and payroll from one place. Employees can clock in and out from any device and once a shift is approved, it will automatically sync to the Justworks Timecard. Customers can create a new Justworks Hours account through a Product Details page found in the Timecards page and experience the integration for free until December 31, 2021.
Enable the integration starting from Justworks
All admins with Timecards permissions will be able to enable the integration. Managers will not be able to enable the integration. We make it easy for you to either connect your existing Justworks Hours account or create a new Justworks Hours account for your company if you don’t have one yet.

Syncing information from Justworks will take a few minutes and then you’ll land on the Justworks Hours Get Started page to send invitations to your employees and set up your new account.
All employees will be added in a pending state and you’ll send an invitation to anyone using Justworks Hours - including Managers who will approve shifts.
Your team will be able to access their Justworks Hours account using their same Justworks login information - no new usernames or passwords needed! When they login to Justworks Hours, they’ll see an option to “Sign in with Justworks”. The admin enabling the integration will be set as the admin on Justworks Hours.

Justworks Hours shifts syncing to Justworks Timecards
Approved Justworks Hours shifts will begin to automatically sync to Justworks Timecards immediately after you enable the integration. Hours should appear on Justworks Timecards within 5 minutes and can be found in the “Saved Drafts” tab. For each employee using Justworks Hours, we’ll include a label on their Justworks Timecard so that you can easily identify when shifts were synced from Justworks Hours. Please ensure all Justworks Hours shifts synced to Timecards before clicking Approve.
Here’s an overview of the process:
- Approve Justworks Hours shifts
- Justworks Hours customers can also enable an “Auto-Approval” setting in Account Preferences if they prefer not to approve each shift
As you can see above, you’ll be approving the shifts in Justworks Hours before calculating overtime and approving the Justworks Timecards. Both approvals are required in order for employees to be paid.
As a heads up, overnight shifts will split at midnight. This will ensure that the hours worked are assigned to the correct work day.
Calculate overtime in Justworks
You will calculate overtime on the Justworks Timecards at the end of the pay period. It’s best to record overtime at the end of the pay period to ensure that all hours worked are factored into the overtime calculation, based on federal and state requirements.
Before the 2pm EST payroll processing deadline, click “Calculate overtime” and review the Timecard to make sure the wage payments are accurate and complete before clicking Approve. Once you approve the Timecard, it is locked and no further Justworks Hours shifts will sync to Justworks from that pay period.
Review this Help Center article for cases in which overtime must be calculated manually - such as when an employee has multiple hourly rates in the same pay period.
Enabling the integration in the middle of the pay period
Only after enabling the integration, approved Justworks Hours shifts automatically sync to Justworks Timecards. Any shifts that were approved prior to enabling the integration will need to be synced individually using the Justworks Hours Reports tab on the left side of your Justworks Hours dashboard. Please note that this is a one-time event required for the initial setup of the integration. After you enable the integration, approved shifts will sync automatically within five minutes.
This means if you are enabling the integration in the middle of the pay period, you’ll use the Reports tab and click “Send” on the right side of each shift that was approved prior to you enabling the integration. You’ll know the shift was sent to Justworks successfully if the status is updated to “Sent”.
Editing a shift in Justworks Hours
As long as the Justworks Timecards hasn’t been approved and payroll has not processed, you can edit shifts on Justworks Hours (even if you’ve approved them) and the changes will automatically appear on the employee’s timecard on Justworks.
If you’ve already Approved the Timecard, any changes in Justworks Hours for that pay period will not sync to Justworks. Instead, you can edit the hours directly on the Justworks Timecard, if payroll hasn't been processed yet, by clicking the Edit button and then clicking Approve again. If you’re editing the Timecard, we recommend you also update the applicable shifts on Justworks Hours to ensure information is accurate in both places.
Confirm that shifts successfully synced to Justworks
Login to Justworks Hours and click on the Reports tab on the left side. After you select the week, you can confirm that shifts were sent over successfully if you see a “Sent” status on the right side of the shift. You can use these Reports to cross-reference the information on the Justworks Timecards.
Setting up Managers who approve shifts
After you complete the Justworks Hours employee matching page, head to each Manager’s Justworks Hours profile and update their “Role” to Manager using the drop-down menu and click Save.
Does Justworks Hours have an app?

How will Paid Time Off be managed after enabling the integration?

Yes - all employees on Justworks can start using Justworks Hours. Many of our customers use the simple project tracking functionality to help their employees manage their time and understand how much time is being devoted to certain projects.
Please note that salaried exempt employees will continue being paid on our automated payroll on Justworks, regardless of hours worked. This means they will not be paid via Timecards.
Can I use Justworks Hours to track time for my contractors?

Can I use Justworks Hours to pay multiple rates to my employees?
While Justworks Hours can support multiple rates, it will require that customers calculate overtime manually on the Justworks Timecards. After approved shifts sync to Justworks, Admins can edit the Timecard and click “Add overtime” to input the overtime amount owed. Learn more about setting up multiple rates on Justworks Hours.
What information is shared between Justworks Hours and Justworks?
Justworks Hours sends all approved shifts to Justworks and serves as the record keeper for all time worked. Any changes to the hours your employees worked must be entered in Justworks Hours. Justworks will send Justworks Hours information from existing employee profiles and serves as the source of payments. Overtime is calculated in Justworks.
Can I disconnect the integration?
If you decide to disconnect the integration, you can do so directly on Justworks Hours, by going to the Integrations tab and clicking “Disconnect”. After that, approved shifts from Justworks Hours would not flow automatically in Justworks Timecards.
