You have started to work for a new amazing family and now it's time to submit your first time sheet. We are here to help! Follow these steps to help guide you.

Step 1: Log in to your CareLinx account and go to your profile

If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see a section called 'My Active Jobs'. Click on 'MANAGE'. 

Step 2: Click on 'START NEW TIMESHEET'

Step 3: Add Shift dates and then your Shift hours 

In this section you will want to click on the days you work first. Then select the time you started and the time you ended your shift. 

If you have clock-ins and clock-outs, you can also prefill your timesheet using the clock-in clock-out times using the Auto-create shifts option:

If the hours exceed certain thresholds, we will ask you if you want us to auto-calculate your overtime. Most caregivers will select Auto-calculate unless you have specific arrangements with your employer. 

Tip 💡: Based on the state you are working in, this will tell you whether the hours worked that week qualify you for overtime based on the state labor laws. 

Step 3a: (Optional) Add expenses 

If you have expenses check the box next to 'I have expenses to reimburse'. If you would like step by step instructions on how to submit expenses, click here. If you don't have any have expenses you need to reimburse, click 'STEP 2: ADD NOTES'. 

Step 4: Add shift notes

This is an important section used to notify the family of any observations you made while you were on shift. Part of being a great caregiver is being aware of anything unusual and notifying the appropriate people. You can add a shift note to each day you worked. Once you have added all appropriate notes, click 'STEP 3: REVIEW'. 

Step 5: Review Timesheet

You may now review your timesheet and make sure that everything is accurate. If you need to make any changes you can click 'BACK TO NOTES". If everything looks accurate, click 'SUBMIT TIMESHEET'. 

Tip 💡: You can also click 'SAVE CHANGES' and come back to it at a later time. Remember that in order to get paid, you need to submit a timesheet. 

Step 6: Confirm Submission

You will be asked one more time to confirm. Click 'SUBMIT'.

Reminder: The family has 2 days to approve the timesheet and then it may take 2-4* days for the funds to appear in your bank account. 

*Note that if your employer uses a bank account to pay, it may take a few days longer
