How can I add an overtime rate exception to a specific shift?
Occasionally you may need to pay your staff "time and a half" or double pay on specific occasions and now it's easier than ever. To multiply the rate of a shift, click on a cell and begin typing "x" followed by the number multiplier (e.g. "x1.5" or "x2") and the rota will apply this to the hourly rate for that specific shift. It's important to put the multiplier beneath the shift time to instruct the system which shift to apply the overtime rate to. For example, to pay your staff double-time you would enter the comment "x2" beneath that shift.
Overtime rates can also be used in combination with unpaid breaks, so if there's already an unpaid break beneath your overtime shift, you're free to place the overtime multiplier above or below the unpaid break.
