WorkSight FLOW’s powerful timecard rules engine will ensure that all your employees’ overtime is automatically calculated and correctly compensated every time.
Overtime rules can have multiple limits and factors and defined differently per area, group, shifts, days of the week and applied to different periods (Daily, Weekly, Holiday). All these parameters can be captured in the Settings Business Rules>Timecard>Overtime Rules table.
In addition, Overtime rules can automatically update the reason column under specified conditions. For example, if employees need to be booked off for Holiday dates, the rule can be used to automatically populate Absence Reason(s) on Designated Stat Holidays when the schedule is generated.
If no overtime rules are configured, then all worked hours will be calculated with a factor of 0.

Troubleshooting / FAQ
I set up the rule, but overtime is still not applying on the timecard.
- Make sure there are no empty fields on the left side of the bolded line in the overtime table. The fields on the left side of the bold line in the overtime table must have either one or more specific values selected or a ‘*’ to include all values.
- Make sure all the reason codes from the employee’s timecard that you expect to count towards the overtime limit are present in the Hours Earned type that is selected in the rule.
