Time Sheet Rules

Before creating schedules for employees, you must first set the parameters for your schedules under Time Sheet Rules

To access Time Sheet Rules, navigate to the Management Console > Schedules > Time Sheet Rules.  Configure these settings according to the laws of your state.

Time Sheet Parameters 

Maximum Regular Hours Per Day  The number of hours, including paid breaks, an employee must work per day before switching to overtime. This number is usually 8. 
Maximum Overtime Hours per Day The number of hours, including paid breaks, an employee must work per day before switching to double time. This number is usually 4.
Overtime Rate Multiplier The amount by which an employee’s hourly rate is increased for overtime. This number is usually 1.5.
Doubletime Rate Multiplier The amount by which an employee’s hourly rate is increased for double time. This number is usually 2.
Maximum Regular Hours Per Week The number of hours, including paid breaks, an employee must work per week before switching to overtime. This number is usually 40.
Allow Clock-In Before Shift Allows employees to clock-in before their shift begins. If unchecked, employees will not be able to clock-in anytime before their shift. To allow employees to clock-in a limited amount of time prior to their shift, use the Enable clock-in before shift limit setting below.
Enable Clock-In Before Shift Limit Set limit on how soon employees can clock in.
Prevent Employee Clock-In Before Break End Employee would not be allowed to clock in before the scheduled end of there break or lunch without a manager pin
Consider Seventh-Worked Day As Overtime Check this box if an employee who works for seven days straight always receives a high rate of pay for the seventh day.
Display Declared Tips in Payroll Check this box to display declared tips in the Payroll report.
Week Starts On Select which day the work week begins on.
Day Starts On Time Input the time of day that the work day begins. Revel recommends that this time be at least one hour before the first employee will clock-in. NOTE: If you have a restaurant or bar that operates past midnight, and wish for hours worked passed midnight be reported on the same day, set the time to several hours after the last person clocks out.
Enable Auto Clock-Out Automatically cocks-out all employees who are still clocked-in at a specific time. This allows managers to easily see who forgot to clock-out and to correct timecards.
Auto Clock-Out Time The time at which Auto clock-out will occur.
Calculate Paid/Unpaid Breaks By Rules If you wish Revel to calculate whether a break it paid or unpaid, check this box. Note that California law dictates that for every 5 hours worked straight (unless the restaurant makes the employee sign a waiver, for which a restaurant can claim up to 6 hours) an employee MUST go on a 30-60 minute break (categorized as a "meal rest period"). Businesses in California must be able to produce a report that reflects these breaks. This will NOT allow employees to declare what kind of break they will go on.
Work Time To Qualify For Paid Break Input the amount of time an employee must work to earn a paid break.
Duration Of Paid Break Input the length of paid break that the employee earns after having worked enough time to qualify for a paid break.
Employee Declares Break Type Instead of using calculated paid breaks, use this setting to allow employees to manually declare whether they are taking a paid or unpaid break. Revel will calculate payroll accordingly.
