Agreement Templates - Overtime Periods

Updated 2 years ago by Christine

The Use default periods for Unsocial Time and Overtime box appears under the Overtime periods tab and is generally checked. This means that the agreement template inherits the default overtime periods which are inserted in the submenu Unsocial hours/Overtime/Bank holidays under the Time and Settings tabs. The benefit of this is that you do not need to add the overtime periods for each individual agreement template if the overtime periods are the same for all agreement templates.

On the other hand, the Use default periods for Unsocial Time and Overtime box must be unchecked if this agreement template is to be covered by other overtime periods or no overtime periods at all. When the box has been unchecked, any new periods can be added by clicking the Add button. This will allow you to simply apply the various overtime periods for different staff groups, for instance, if you have several collective agreements at the workplace, or if only certain staff groups are to be covered by overtime periods and others not.

Note that the Use default periods for Unsocial Time and Overtime  check box determines the link to both the unsocial hours periods and overtime periods, which means that if you uncheck this box, in the Unsocial Time periods tab, the link to the default unsocial time periods is also lost. See the chapter on overtime periods for instructions about how you add Overtime periods.
