Three ways to stay on top of overtime
  • The type of employees you have will determine whether you should pay overtime. If your employees earn above the threshold or are senior managers you don't have to pay overtime. There are two other types of employees who don't earn from working overtime.
    Turn to chapter O03 in your Practical Guide to Human Resources Management and make sure you know who they are!
  • Should you require an employee to work overtime, their contract should state the rate they'll be paid. If your employee normally works on a Sunday or public holiday you'll have to pay 1.5 their hourly rate. If your employees don't normally work on these days you'll have to pay double their normal rate.
  • Explain your overtime policy to your employees and apply an overtime register to keep track of who worked overtime and when.
    Those who work overtime might need help to prioritise their work.

Simplify your work and save thousands!

Now you don't have to scour the internet for hours or pay a labour consultant thousands just to draw up all the documents you need to hire, manage and discipline employees.

Simplify your job and save your company thousands, if not millions, with this simple tool every employee should have!

++++++

Having an overtime policy will help you stay on top of overtime claims. If you don't have this policy you can find it in our upcoming HR Policies and Procedures update of the Practical Guide to Human Resources Management. Ensure you get a hold of this policy to stay on top of overtime in your workplace.
