Shift timing and rules settings define the payable hours calculated for an employee when assigning to a shift. My Payroll Master HRM System helps to streamline and automate setting shift timing and rules for employees in a company. This helps to avoid confusions and makes it easier to calculate payable hours.

In this video, we focus on how to configure shift timing and rules in My Payroll Master.

We also have option to select half-day. You can only give half-day option to the selected working days.

Next is shift time

► Add in-time and out-time. Duration will appear automatically.

► If the in-time is set as 5, the employee can punch till that late in limit.

► This is also applicable for early out limit

► Next set full day minutes. It should not be greater than total duration.

Next is half-day minute. This you can give according to company policy. It should not be greater than full-day minute and total duration.

► And the point to be noted is, if the employee covers the limit for the full day and half day, then only the employee will be shown as present for the day.

► In shift time settings, Next Day option is available for night shift employees.If the in-time has to be set as 18.30 and out time as 3.00, this will be possible only after clicking the Next day option. The employee working in Next Day option for this timing will be shown as present in that particular day.

►For example, multi-shift option is enabled for hospitality, security etc.When you enable multi-shift option, two other options will appear. Number of shifts and balance considered as monthly working balance.

► First is number of shifts. If number of shifts is marked as two, and the employee work for full day minutes, then it will show employee’s working day as two.

► Balance is considered as monthly working balance. If you work more than full day minutes, it is considered as monthly working balance. It can either be selected as OT, Compoff and None of the above. If you are selecting OT, the balance working time will be considered as overtime.

Next is how to fix overtime for employees

►It can be either selected as Overtime-Minimum time after shift or overtime minimum time before shift or both together

► Minimum time after shift-If we give 30 as time after shift, OT will be considered only after 30 minutes.

► Next select salary component for OT, like bonus, performance incentives, advances, professional tax, tds, PF, ESI etc.

►Next is working on off-day. If the employee worked on off day, that is on a holiday or week off, you can consider that as OT or compensatory off
