*Time off instead of payment for overtime leave is accrued at the same rate as the number of overtime hours worked. EXAMPLE: an employee who worked two (2) overtime hours is entitled to two (2) hours’ time off. If time off for overtime is not taken and the time off is to be paid out, it must be paid at the overtime rate applicable to the overtime when worked. This also applies when an employee is terminated and the time off is to be paid out. In order to be paid out correctly, the overtime rate will need to be recorded manually at the same time as the time in lieu accrual is processed. It is suggested that you record the overtime details in the “notes” section of the leave accrual line in the pay run.

If you are required to pay out the time off for overtime either before termination or during termination, you can run a Pay Run Audit Report for the pay runs for the employee when Time in Lieu was accrued to determine the applicable rates (which will detail your notes) and run an Employee Payment History Report to determine if any of the time off for overtime has been taken. You can then determine the correct balance based on the number of hours by taking the equivalent to the overtime payment that would have been made EXAMPLE: an employee who worked two (2) overtime hour at what would have been the rate of time and a half, is then entitled to three (3) hours of time off leave to be accrued. In our above example (the first accrual line of the screen shot) you would take 0.5 hours x 1.5 = 0.75 hours. Therefore, you will need to adjust the time in lieu balance by adding a further 0.25 hours (0.75 hours – 0.5 hours = 0.25 hours).

  1. New laundry allowance pay categories and rule conditions were created to reflect the ATO threshold maximum limits for claiming of laundry (not dry cleaning) for deductible clothing under the Award. Further information can be found in the “Cleaning of Work Clothing” section of this ATO article

We have created a new rule - 13.8 Apply Overtime - Overtime Advanced Standard Hours - Partime.  This rule reflects the following provisions of clause 13.8:

  • the hours worked each day;
  • which days of the week the employee will work;
  • the actual starting and finishing times of each day.

Previously we could only assess the number of hours worked per week for overtime purposes using the existing 29.2(b) Apply Overtime - Over Standard Hours - Part Time rule. Now, however, we can assess the Advanced Standard Work Hours as set up within the employee's Pay Run Defaults screen.

For example, if an employee's Advanced Standard Work Hours were as follows:

Screen_Shot_2018-05-25_at_08.22.28.png

The rule will assess hours as follows:

  1. Any time worked on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday will be deemed overtime;
  2. Any time worked before the start times on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Sunday will be deemed overtime; and
  3. Any time worked after the end times on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Sunday will be deemed overtime.

N.B:

(a) This rule only works where Advanced Standard Work Hours have been set up using start and finish times, NOT hours only;

(b) If no Advanced Standard Work Hours have been set up for a part time employee, then all hours will be deemed overtime.
