How to calculate overtime?
We speak of overtime when the legal weekly working time is exceeded.
The situation of each employee must be assessed differently depending on the working time provided for in their employment contract.
The rules for calculating overtime are different according to the collective agreements of the companies.
The Overtime management module for Dolibarr offers a setting that allows you to adapt the management rules of your company, by integrating working hours, as well as any surcharges.
It is important to emphasize that the increase is not compulsory, it depends on the provisions of your collective agreement.
Your accountant can guide you to find out the legislation governing overtime in your industry.
The overtime hours are counted by calendar week, that is to say, the week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday.
In the event of an increase, the Dolibarr overtime management module gives you the possibility of easily configuring the time slots and the applicable premium rates.
Calculation of overtime and time recording:
The Dolibarr overtime management module offers you two ways to capture the hours entered.
(1) Via the timesheet and activities
Each employee declares his activity for the week, and the module is based on the hours worked per activity to deduct overtime.
(2) Direct declaration of overtime
Another possibility offered by the module is the direct declaration of overtime via the overtime form.
This approach is suitable for companies that do not have time traceability constraints by activity.
Start and end time calculation or according to the hourly volume worked
For companies wishing to enter the hours following the start time and end time, this is done by means of a simple configuration in the software.
You have the choice to declare the hourly volume worked or to specify the exact time.
Indeed, the Dolibarr overtime module offers you an adaptable overtime management according to your constraints.
The thresholds make it possible to determine the overtime according to the hours worked by the employee.
Depending on the provisions of your collective agreement, it is possible to define the rates of increase for overtime by hourly period.
In the classic case without increase, only one threshold will be defined.
Example Overtime threshold:
(a) Nominal case of overtime without premium:
Beyond: 35h, until: undefined
Rate of increase = 0%
This calculation threshold concerns a 35h contract in which from the 36th hour and beyond, there is overtime, without increase.
(b) Overtime with premium:
Beyond: 35h, until: 43h
Rate of increase = 25%
Beyond: 43h, until: undefined
Rate of increase = 50%
