Set Different Overtime Compensation Values Based on Working hours

Suppose you are implementing an overtime compensation according to work hours.  In this case, Carbonate lets you set different compensation and reflect the company overtime policy appropriately.

For example, if working hours are beyond 8 hours then OT compensation will be 1.5x per hour salary. If working hours are beyond 13 hours then OT compensation will be 2x per hour salary. So, if an employee worked for 15 hours in total, he will get OT compensation of 1.5x for 5 hrs and 2x for 2 hrs.

Before setting the overtime compensation, kindly make the necessary updates on the OT settings on Carbonate. Refer to the respective user guides.
