Overtime Options

Applies to both ShopClock and ShopClock Plus ShopClock offers several overtime options. including FLSA, California, and the canadian provences.

ShopClock Uses State and Federal (FLSA) Rules When Calculating Overtime.

 Overtime Options

  • The U.S. Department of Labor's Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
  • California's Labor Standard section 510. (Prymided and Non-Prymided).
  • Canadian rules: (Ontario 44hrs/wk) etc.
  • Or overtime calculations can be turned off.

When Departments are enabled, the overtime rules can be different for each department.

ShopClock automatically calculates overtime correctly no matter when the pay period begins or ends, because previously paid hours that may contribute to overtime are taken into consideration.

Previously Paid Hours, used solely to calculate over time, are clearly marked on ShopClock's Pay Period Processing Report.

Each time an employee punches in and out of ShopClock, it is considered a Time Card Session and is displayed as a single row on the employee’s time card.

There are many types of time clock sessions. "Hours Worked", "Time Worked", and "Paid Break" sessions are what the employees are paid on.

But the time card may contain sessions like "Unpaid Breaks" and "Lunches" which are not included in the total of payable hours, and thus do not contribute to overtime.

An employee can have as many sessions per day as desired. The hours worked for each session are calculated when the employee ends the session by clocking out for a break, lunch, or the day.

Hours can be displayed as

  • Hours:Minutes:Seconds,
  • Hours: Minutes,
  • or decimal hours.

To keep employees constantly informed as the number of hours they have worked during the current pay period, the total number of Regular, Overtime, (and in California, Double Overtime), Vacation, Holiday, Bereavement and Sick hours worked or taken during the pay period are displayed in the status bar at the bottom of the time card.
