Payroll and Timekeeping Clerk

Payroll and timekeeping clerks compile and post employee time and payroll data. They ensure that employees are paid on time and that their paychecks are accurate.

Business Management and Accounting Programs


Work Environment

Payroll and timekeeping clerks work in office environments. Clerks may have to sit for extended periods while reviewing detailed data. Many clerks work regular business hours and a standard 40-hour week, although some may work occasional evenings and weekends.

Employment Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of payroll and timekeeping clerks is projected to grow 15 percent between 2010 and 2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Although payroll and timekeeping functions continue to be important for companies, the automation of this work and the use of computer software that allows employees to update and record their own payroll and timekeeping information will limit the growth of this occupation.
