Set Overtime Rules

Use this section to specify how LiveIQ should apply overtime rates. If you do not pay overtime, you do not need to set overtime rules.

When overtime rules are applied, if an hour worked by an employee surpasses the rules for Rate 1 and Rate 2, the employee is paid using the overtime rate that pays the employee the higher hourly rate.
