Never calculate employee time data by hand again. This free time card calculator fulfills the needs of managers and hourly employees. After employees track time for the week, insert their hours worked to calculate their expected pay. Include their overtime and breaks to ensure their hours and wages meet Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulations.
What is a time card?
A time card, sometimes called a timesheet or a time card calculator, enables you to track and analyze employee work hours. Information is power. When you track data like employee hours, overtime, vacation days, and even lunch breaks, your decisions become data-driven and more informed.

How to use the time card calculator
Here are the step by step instructions on how to use the time card calculator:
1. Select your time card details
First, you’ll need to set up the calculator. For each employee, select the type of time card and the number of days in their week. Select five days to see Monday through Friday. Or select seven days to see Monday through Sunday. Use the weekly time card to see one week of time entries. Or use the bi-weekly time card to see two weeks of time entries.
2. Add hourly and overtime rates
Next, select the employee’s overtime rule—whether they receive overtime pay for hours worked over eight in a day or 40 in a week. If the employee is not eligible for overtime, select “Exempt.” Then add the employee’s base hourly pay rate, and select their overtime rate.
3. Add times worked—don’t forget overtime and breaks
For each day the employee worked, add their clock in and clock out times. Those should include overtime hours. For each day the employee took an unpaid break, add those minutes in the box provided. Unpaid break minutes are subtracted from the total time. As you fill in the clock in and clock out times, the tool calculates the employee’s total hours (regular and overtime) and total gross pay.
4. Download and save or print the data
Enter your email address in the box provided to download a CSV of your employee’s times worked. Then open the file in Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, or another application.
