Meal breaks FAQ
Q: Which devices will this work for?
A: We recommend using a computer screen or a tablet for Webpunch.
Q: What about automatic compensation for not matching the meal break rules?
A: We will add this functionality in Q1 2023. Until then, the manager has to add the compensation manually. Make sure to set up a manual salary type that you can use until then. Read more about how to set up a manual salary type.
Q: Are meal breaks any different from “normal breaks”?
A: As soon as you activate meal breaks, you can punch out on meal breaks in Webpunch. This is the only way to punch out on a meal break, which in turn activates the related functionalities.
Q: Will this be available in the mobile app?
A: Currently, this is not planned. If we see an increase in requests using mobile to punch out on meal breaks, then we will reconsider.
Q: What happens if I deactivate the meal break setting?
A: If you deactivate the meal breaks in the Compensation rule, the waiver information in the timecard will be deleted. If you want the waiver information to remain, please deactivate them on a unit level.
