Overview

Set up overtime alerts to let managers know when employees are nearing overtime based on the configured weekly overtime threshold. Managers have the option to opt in or out of these alerts by setting their personal alert preferences.

Note

Overtime alerts are currently available for accounts that use weekly or bi-weekly pay periods.

How overtime alerts work

Two types of overtime alerts can be set up:

  • Scheduled for overtime: An alert is sent to managers when an employee’s worked hours and their remaining scheduled hours cause the employee to work weekly overtime. This alert is triggered when an employee clocks out.
  • Nearing overtime: An alert is sent to managers when an employee is within X hours away from working weekly overtime. This alert is triggered when an employee clocks in.
