Most businesses and modern awards include normal hours for example 9 am - 5 pm as normal rates of pay. When staff work over their allocated shift, in this case past 5 pm - this then moves the rate of pay to overtime, which may be paid at a higher rate of pay.
Managers can request staff to work beyond their normal hours (within reason) if business traffic is heavy and they require extra work to cover the demand. There are strict conditions to apply reasonable overtime which can include health risks, safety risks, workplace needs, overtime entitlements, notice period, an employee can’t work overtime, and the industry.
Roster Elf allows owners and managers to allocate different pay rules and templates that accommodate the different loadings with your modern industry award. This can include Normal Hours, Weekends, Public Holidays as well as Overtime pay rules.
When managers are processing their payroll, the draft timesheet will include full award interpretation including any overtime that was worked.
