Overtime Policies define how overtime is calculated for workweeks.
Using the left pane Main Menu, click on: Administration » Payrolls and Reports » Overtime Policies.
Overtime Policies define how overtime is calculated for workweeks. These policies stand alone and do not, by themselves, determine how overtime is calculated for any one employee. Instead, you must link Overtime Policies to Workweek Groups.
NOTE: If you have upgraded your TimeIPS system from v1.4 or an older version, your payroll settings have been converted into Workweek Groups and Overtime Policies. You may also have Overtime Policies named after individual employees. These employees had payroll settings that were converted into a unique Overtime Policy for that employee.

Net Pay Calculations
As of TimeIPS v1.5, TimeIPS Overtime/Doubletime Net Pay Calculations are based on the following documentation taken from: http://www.dol.gov/dol/allcfr/ESA/Title_29/Part_548/29CFR548.2.htm
(e) The basic rate so established is authorized by Sec. 548.3 or is authorized by the Administrator under Sec. 548.4 as being substantially equivalent to the average hourly earnings of the employee, exclusive of overtime premiums, in the particular work over a representative period of time;
(f) Overtime hours are compensated at a rate of not less than one and one-half times such established basic rate;
(g) The hours for which the employee is paid not less than one and one-half times such established basic rate qualify as overtime hours under section 7(e) (5), (6), or (7) of the Act;
(h) The number of hours for which the employee is paid not less than one and one-half times such established basic rate equals or exceeds the number of hours worked by him in any workweek in excess of the maximum workweek applicable to such employees under subsection 7(a) of the Act;
(i) The employee's average hourly earnings for the workweek exclusive of payments described in paragraphs (1) through (7) of section 7(e) of the Act are not less than the minimum hourly rate required by this Act or other applicable law;
(j) Extra overtime compensation is properly computed and paid on other forms of additional pay which have not been considered in arriving at the basic rate but which are required to be included in computing the regular rate.
