Atto's customizable settings make it straightforward to align your overtime practices with your company's needs. Here's how you can adjust your overtime settings effectively.

Start with Your Workweek:

  1. Access Your Settings: Sign into your Atto account and navigate to 'Settings'.

  2. Define Workweek Start: Select 'Workweek & Overtime' and choose the day your workweek begins. This crucial step influences how time entries are categorized and when overtime calculations kick in.

Customize Overtime Rules:

  • Weekly Overtime: Establish your standard weekly hours. Any work beyond this qualifies as overtime. Determine the calculation threshold and set the overtime pay rate for these additional hours.

  • Daily Overtime: Set regular daily hours. Hours worked above this daily limit are considered overtime. Configure when overtime starts and specify the pay rate for these overtime hours.

  • Daily Double Overtime: Designate a specific number of daily hours, after which work is counted as double overtime. Determine the calculation threshold for double overtime and input the pay rate.

  • 7th Day Overtime: For employees working seven consecutive days, the first eight hours on the seventh day are paid at the overtime rate, with hours beyond that at double the rate. Ensure you configure this setting to acknowledge their extra effort appropriately.

Further Customization with Advanced Pay Settings:

Beyond basic overtime, Atto allows detailed settings for special circumstances:

  • Weekend Overtime: For Saturday and/or Sunday work, you can apply specific overtime rates if your operational policies require it.

  • Public Holidays: Automatically consider all work on public holidays as overtime. Select existing holidays or add custom ones, assigning unique rates for each. Remember to refresh your holiday list each year for accuracy.

  • Night Shift Overtime: Specify night hours that are eligible for overtime and set a unique pay rate for this period.

By adjusting these settings, you align your overtime practices with your company's operational needs and standards, ensuring accurate payroll processing and maintaining a transparent workplace.
