uAttend allows you to set up overtime pay for some or all employees in the event that your employees work through their lunch break. When enabled, employees will be paid over time if they work past the threshold set without punching for lunch. Once employees punch in from lunch, the lunch overtime rule will reset. Lunch overtime is set up at the department level.


To set up lunch overtime, follow these steps:


1. Click the Departments tab on the main menu.


2. Select the department from the list.


3. Click the Overtime link.


To access the Lunch Over time drop-down menu, the Weekly/Bi-Weekly Overtime feature must be enabled.


4. Click the Edit link next to Weekly/Bi-Weekly Overtime and select an overtime option.




5. Click Edit next to Lunch Overtime.


6. From the drop-down menu, select Enabled.


7. Select when lunch overtime pay should begin.


For example, if you select After 3 hours worked, employees will begin to accrue overtime pay if they continue to work past the 3 hour threshold without punching out for lunch. Once the employee punches in from lunch, the threshold will reset and the employee will begin to accrue overtime pay if they continue to work an additional 3 hours without punching for lunch.


8. Select which overtime type will apply when lunch overtime is accrued. The options are:

  • OT1
  • OT2



9. Click Save


Once the employee punches in from lunch, the threshold will reset and the employee will begin to accrue overtime pay if they continue to work an additional 3 hours without punching for lunch.


Note: If you set up lunch overtime after employees have begun punching in and out, you must recalculate timecards to reflect any overtime worked. To recalculate timecards, click the Timecards tab, then select the employee's name from the list. Click the Recalculate link in the lower-right corner of the screen.
