Regular Time/OverTime calculations

Steve Wells Mar 03, 2014 02:44PM EST

My employee's work week is from Sunday through Saturday. They get paid bi-weekly with overtime after 40 hours for the 7 day week. How do I set this up to calculate correctly?

Hello Steve,

To set the work week from Sunday through Saturday, you will need to click on System Settings > Day Type. Then next to “First day of the week is” is where you will select the first day of the week which is Sunday. You can then continue to setup your payroll cycle by selecting the payroll cycle type and payroll cycle start date.

To set overtime to be calculated after 40 hours per week, you will need to click on System Settings > Group Duty Roster > Edit. Afterwards, you will have to click on the drop-down list under “Overtime Only After” and select “Week”. Then you will need to type “40.00” in the section next to that drop-down list so it reads “Overtime Only After 40.00 / Week”. Once you type that, click on the check box “Auto Calculate OT” so it can automatically calculate over time. Once you checked the box, click on “Back” and then click on “Save”.

The following link contains details on setting up daily and weekly overtime rules on the TCMS software:
