Ensuring work is logged before Resolved

What is the best way to ensure that some work has been entered before a task is marked as resolved? I am using Tempo Timesheets and there are several places to log work. I'd want engineers to log work every day and they might be working on a task for several days.

Setting the Log Work is not an option as the engineers could already have logged work before they get to the Resolve screen and I would not want them to double up on the work when they think they need to add it again.

I'd settle for some kind of exception report or filter where I could go looking for resolved tasks that have zero hours logged against them but I could not see how to choose work as a field on filter?

My workaround for the moment is to make the field mandatory and if users have entered all of their work before the Resolve screen then I will say that they need to enter 1m as a nominal value. 0 cannot be entered. It would be ideal if 0 could be entered. I would not want users to Resolve without thinking about it and putting in 0 would seem to me to indicate that they have already recorded their time, but it is not possible.
