In timr you have the possibility to limit the number of possible overtime hours per working time type.
The limit of overtime hours can be set individually for each working time type in the menu "Administration/Working time rules" in the area "Overtime".
If the defined limit is exceeded, you will receive a warning message in the time & vacation account.
How does the limitation of overtime hours work?
The limitation of overtime is set per working time type. You can set different overtime limits for office hours, home office or business trips, for example.
timr checks the recorded working time considering the given target time and the defined overtime limit.
NOTE: In case there is more than one record of working time for the day, decisive for the limit check is the last recorded working time of the day.
- Overtime limit for Office time: 1 hour
- no overtime limit for Business trips
- Target time of the employee according to the working time model: 8 hours/day, Monday to Friday
a) Monday, 8:00 - 12:00 Office time and 13:00 - 17:00 Office time => limit not exceeded
b) Tuesday, 7:00 - 12:00 Office time and 13:00 - 18:00 Office time => limit exceeded
c) Wednesday, 8:00 - 12:00 Office time and 13:00 - 18:00 Business trip => limit not exceeded (last recorded working time Business trip is not limited)
d) Thursday, 7:00 - 12:00 Business trip and 13:00 - 18:00 Office time => limit exceeded (last recorded working time Office time is limited to 1 hour overtime)
2. Automatic cutting off of hours when the daily maximum working time is exceeded
If employees do not adhere to the legal maximum working time, you can activate that hours are automatically cut off. The overtime will thus no longer be recorded in the time account and will not be paid.
The configuration is done under "Administration/Working Time Rules", see also "1.1. Daily and weekly maximum working time" in the article about working time rules.
If the "Automatically cut exceeding working times" is activated and the maximum working time is exceeded, you will see an information (mark "i") in the overview under "Reports/Working Time" at the entry.
By clicking on "Show" you will get the information that the working time was automatically shortened, as well as the time when the working time was actually stopped.
