Employee is Exempt

Enable this setting to make an employee exempt from overtime pay calculations.

Why would you use this?

If you have employees that do not qualify for overtime pay, then you will want to enable this setting for that employee. One example of this would be a salaried employee.

Allow Timesheet Editing & Disable Attendance Alerts to Management

This setting allows the employee to edit their own timesheet so they do not need to clock in for a shift. This setting overrides the global setting Allow Employees to Enter and Edit Their Own Timesheets in Attendance Settings.

When enabled, managers do not receive clock in and clock out alerts about their employees. In addition, managers do not receive attendance notices on their Dashboard regarding the employee. This setting does NOT disable attendance alerts sent to the employee.

Why would you use this?

If you have employees that are salaried or managers don’t need to track their clock in times, you will want to enable this setting.
