The Overtime Rate Per Period and Overtime Rate Per Day rate rules work alongside an hourly rule which enables the system to automatically apply overtime to the timesheet based on the number of hours entered by the candidate. The candidate does not see any reference to the overtime rate at all but they will be required to enter the amount of hours worked for each day.
For the first example we will look at the Overtime Rate Per Day rate rule - here is how it should be applied on the Costing page of the Assignment Entry:
Here is how this arrangement will look to the candidate when they enter their units:
Here is how the breakdown is recorded on the Etz timesheet image:
When the timesheet comes back in for validation the breakdown of standard units and overtime are already in place:
The Overtime Rate Per Period rate rule applies to the entire timesheet period, so if you have agreed with your client that for this particular assignment if the candidate works more than say 40 hours per week overtime would be payable, this rate rule arrangement would achieve that for you. It is important however that you enter the total amount of hours in the Costing area of the Assignment Entry in order for the system to correctly apply overtime:
Important note: if you do not enter the amount of hours in the 'apply after _ total hours' field the system will use the overtime rate for every hour worked, so please ensure you set this up correctly.
