Overtime Policy

Post by westley » Thu Aug 02, 2018 9:08 pm

Having an issue with overtime.

Overtime Policy is set as follows:
Contributing Shift Policy: Regular Time
Type: Bi-Weekly
Active After 80.00

Regular Time Policy is set as follows:
Contributing Shift policy: Regular Time
Pay Code: Regular Time

Work week is Sunday Thru Saturday

Pay period runs Friday thru 2nd Thursday

When I run a TimeSheet Detail Report, I've got one employee with 81:44 regular hours and no overtime (she should have 1:44 OT). Another employee has 77:29 hours with 1:06 in OT when it should be zero OT.

What's missing?

Thanks,
Westley

Please attach a copy of the report along with a screenshot of the employees timesheet (1st and 2nd week).

I think its just a matter of your overtime week not corresponding to your pay period weeks. Since your overtime week starts on Sunday, but your pay period starts on Friday July 20th, its possible for an employee to have overtime on the first day or two of the pay period (since its for time worked prior to the pay period), but not work more than 80hrs in that particular pay period.

This is a quite normal situation and there is nothing wrong with it, you just need to understand it, or change the settings to match what you expect.

Alternatively you would need to switch your overtime week in the advanced tab of the pay period schedule settings to match your pay period weeks, then recalculate the timesheets.

Ok, that made sense. Took two tries of recalculating to get it to calculate correctly.

The first time I had selected "All" but it also had one other employee selected and it only recalculated that one employee. The second time I added all employees and removed the "All" entry and everyone was recalculated.

All is good.

Thanks!
