Setup Your Overtime Rules

  • Updated

Who this feature is for

  • Those set up as a Dashboard User with access to Web Timesheets in the Assignar Web App.
  • Those responsible for Payroll and reviewing Timesheets.
  • Only applicable to those with New Time Tracking. 

You can calculate how many Regular, Overtime or second Overtime hours your workers should be paid, based on rules that you set up in our Overtime Rules page - saving you time from manually calculating them in a spreadsheet!

If you’re currently using a custom payroll export with Insights to calculate Overtime, you can continue using that. However, our Overtime Rules page is incompatible with Insights. We strongly encourage you to manage Payroll using our Overtime Rules page. It's easy to set up and easier to use!

To begin, go to the Overtime Rules page



Next, set your week's starting day

The week's starting day will be used to calculate Overtime across the week. This should also align to your company's pay period. For example, if your company pay period is Monday - Sunday, then select Monday as your week's starting day.

We support several Rules for Overtime:

Rule Description
Daily Overtime Workers start earning Overtime or second Overtime after the number of hours you've set here has been met.
Weekly Overtime

Workers start earning Overtime after they have accrued the set hours of regular time, over the course of the week.

Workers start earning Second Overtime after they have accrued the set hours of Regular Time or first Overtime, over the course of the week.

Weekend Overtime

Here you can configure overtime rules that apply on Saturday and Sunday.



Test your Overtime Rules

You can test your Overtime Rules as you set them up to understand how your rules will apply with timesheets of 11 hours work and 1 hour break each day.

Will I be able to set up different rules for different workers?

Any Overtime rule that you set up will be applied to all of your workers.

We understand that some Overtime Rules may need to be setup differently for different workers. If that is something that your company requires, please let us know using the link below!
