Overtime Policies for ExakTime

While employees are working throughout their week, you may need to track when they work over their normal work schedule and should receive overtime or even doubletime. The tracking of the overtime/doubletime can be based on the employee and/or the location worked. 

Before setting up your policy options, it may be helpful to refer to your employment counsel to ensure that any of the options enabled are appropriate for your region/industry.

While this article covers our overtime policies, we also have articles for other employee and location based policies: Employee Policies and Location Policies
