# Labor Entry (LABOR.E)
Read Time: 1 minute(s)
The LABOR.E procedure is used to enter individual labor transactions which record the number of labor hours and labor dollars posted to a work order. The operator enters the number of the employee, work order number, number of hours and type of hours being posted (regular, overtime etc.). The user may also enter the start and stop time worked and have the system calculate the hours worked.
When the operator's entry is filed the system creates a record in the Labor file (LABOR) which records the pertinent information about the transaction. At the same time it updates the work order record (WO) with the hours and dollars posted. To record the financial effect of the transaction, work order register (WOREG) records are created when the record is filed.
