In most employee contracts, there will be overtime that applies after a certain amount of hours in day/pay period, followed by another level of overtime after Y hours of overtime.
For example, "Hours worked in excess of the 38 hours per week are to be paid at time and a half for the first three hours and double time thereafter".
This means we need at least two rules:
- Overtime after 38 ordinary hours, paid at 1.5x.
- Overtime after 3hours of overtime (1.5x), paid at 2.0x.
Overtime (1.5x) after 38hours
To build the first overtime rule, ensure you have:
- Selected 'Overtime' as your rule type.
- Conditions are set to apply after ordinary hours have elapsed, based on hours worked in a pay period, and hours in the pay period is set to 38.
Overtime (2.0x) after 3 hours of overtime (1.5x)
To create the second rule:
- Select 'Overtime' as your rule type.
- Set conditions to apply after overtime hours have elapsed, based on hours worked in a pay period of 38 hours, and after 3 hours of overtime.
In this specific example, we looked at overtime (1.5) after 38 hours and overtime (2.0) after 3 hours of overtime. However, you can change the conditions to suit your specific arrangement.
