Overtime

    uAttend allows you to set up overtime pay for some or all employees in the event that your employees work through their lunch break. When enabled, employees will be paid over time if they work past the threshold set without punching for lunch. Once employees punch in from lunch, the lunch overtime rule will reset. Lunch overtime is set up at the department level.

    To set up lunch overtime, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Departments tab on the main menu.

    2. Select the department from the list.

    3. Click the Overtime link.

    8. Select which overtime type will apply when lunch overtime is accrued. The options are:

    • OT1
    • OT2
