Salary Employee Features

Easy Clocking will now allow companies to determine if overtime will be counted towards the total amount of hours and pay for their salary employees. This will allow companies whose salary employees are clocking in for attendance purposes only to view their time cards without any OT hours affecting the total amount.

How to use this feature:

  1. Settings
  2. Pay Class
  3. Select the Pay Class
  4. Select Over Time tab
  5. Select if you would like to have the OT hours count towards the TOTAL AMOUNT
  • If selected, this will count the OT hours generated by your salary employees to count towards the total amount. Therefore, it will change the amount to be paid.
  • If not selected, this will NOT count the OT hours towards the total amount. Therefore, the amount to be paid will not be affected.

6. Click Save

On either scenario the OT hours will still show on the time card, but this setting will determine if the total amount to be paid will change.

As seen in an example:


Example 1: Count hours towards Total Amount SELECTED

As you can see in this example, this employee has worked over time (which was approved). Since the feature is selected to count OT hours towards their total amount, the value changes to take into account the OT hour that was worked.

Example 2: Count hours towards Total Amount NOT SELECTED

As you can see in this example, this employee has worked over time (which was approved). Since the feature is not selected to count OT hours towards their total amount, the value does not change even though their total amount of hours have increased
