Company Overtime Settings
From this menu, you can set the settings so that additional income is given after the default hours or a specified threshold is met, and you can have this based on a working day, week, or pay period. You can also set up basic conditions and exemptions for overtime payments such as including paid leave hours in the calculations. Enabling "The following pay rate settings are applied to all employees" will apply these rules to all employees, including casual employees but not including salaried employees. If you are not using this option, but still want to set up overtime pay for some employees, please follow our guide: Overtime Pay Settings Per Employees.
You can also change the rate you pay for a public holiday. This rate may be as high as you like, but can be no lower than time and a half (1.5) otherwise you risk non-compliance.
You can set up to three different pay rates and then set up a "Threshold for Pay Rate 2" and a "Threshold for Pay Rate 3", as needed.
For example, you can have an employee paid time and a quarter for working over forty hours, paid time and a half for working over forty-five hours, and then paid at two times their normal pay for working over fifty hours. Another example is you can have an employee paid time and a half for working over forty hours, but then paid normal again for working over fifty hours.
Another option, "Employee can accrue Overtime in Lieu leave", allows employees to accrue the hours they have worked over their contracted or a set threshold of hours and use as leave later. Regardless of whether or not "The following pay rate settings are applied to all employees" is enabled, this still needs to be set up on the employee level after this option is ticked. You can enable this setting for each employee from "Employee Settings", "Employee Details", "Default Hours".
Do not enable "Overtime Pay will be classified as Conditional Income" unless told otherwise by a Crystal Payroll staff member, otherwise you risk non-compliance.
