Setting up Weekly, Daily, and Double Overtime

To configure the overtime settings, click the Settings menu and then select Overtime Rules.

Overtime rate is calculated by multiplying the employee’s normal rate by 1.5.

Double overtime rate is calculated by multiplying the employee’s normal rate by 2.

There are four different settings you can change.

Start by clicking on the new button in the overtime rules modal

Rule Name

Start by giving your overtime rule a name.

Week Start Day

You can choose the starting day of the week. This will be the starting day for counting the number of days in a 7-day work week for your pay periods. The Weekly Overtime will be dependent on this setting.

Weekly Overtime 

An employee will receive overtime pay if their weekly hours exceed this threshold.

Example: If you need to pay overtime to employees that work more than 40 hours in a week, you would enter 40 in this field. If an employee clocks in for a total of 41 hours in a week, they will have 1 hour of overtime added to that pay period.

Daily Overtime

An employee will receive overtime pay if their daily hours exceed this threshold.

Example: If you need to pay daily overtime to employees that work more than 8 hours in a day, you would enter 8 in this field. If an employee clocks in for a total of 9 hours in a single day, they will have 1 hour of daily overtime added to that pay period.

Daily Double Overtime

An employee will receive double overtime pay if their daily hours exceed this threshold.

In order to use this option, the Overtime value must be greater than zero and the Double Overtime value should be greater than the Overtime value. For example, enter 12 if you want to pay double overtime to employees that work more than 12 hours in a day. If an employee clocks in for a total of 13 hours in a single day, and assuming the daily overtime rate is set to 8, they would receive 4 hours of regular overtime and 1 hour of double overtime.

Set as Default

The default rule will apply to all employees.  To assign an employee a different rule, simply go to the employee settings and edit in the payroll tab for that employee.
