Access from your: Computer
Applies to: Managers

Break rules are set per position enabling managers to get the exact working hours that need to be paid. These rules can be set differently for each 'Position' and with different time parameters.

  2. You can add multiple break rules according to your business requirements.
  3. You cannot edit once created or restore the break rules once deleted.

The scenario outlined in this tutorial consists of the following building blocks:

  1. Add Position-Based Break Rule
  2. Meaning of Inclusive Minimum and Maximum Times
  3. Delete a Position-Based Break Rule

That’s it, close the box once you have created the break rule.

Meaning of Inclusive Minimum and Maximum Times

  1. If this box is checked: Shift length >= minimum and shift length <= maximum
    Break will be applied to shifts having total time equal to or greater than the minimum time of the break and equal to or less than the maximum time of the break rule.
  2. If the box is unchecked: shift length > minimum and shift length < maximum
    Break will be applied to shifts having total time greater than the minimum time of the break and less than the maximum time of the break rule.
