Pay Class

The Pay Class contains a set of rules that assist in the layout and breakdown of the Employee time card. These rules consist of Overtime, Double-time and Lunch and Break settings, along with maximum work hours and overnight shift settings.

If employees have different rules, for example, salaried vs hourly employees, you can create a different pay class for different groups.

Pay Class – General: 

  • Pay Class Name
  • What is the maximum continuous hours an employee will take breaks?
    Essentially, this is asking you how long the work day is for any user that will be assigned to the Pay Class.
    For example: If the employee works a standard, 8-hour day but is entitled to overtime and double-time, you will want to consider their regular hours + any potential over or double-time when inputting a value for the maximum continuous hours. Thus, 12 is the default value in the system. It would allow the employee to work the 8-hour day and earn up to 4 hours of overtime, if worked.
  • Do employee work overnight (from one day to another) ? Enable this setting if the employees that are assigned to the pay class potentially cross midnight in their shift.
