Managing one’s overtime is usually at the hands of the employee. Therefore, it is important to have the right tools for the job. The Overtime calculator has been built to help users gain better clarity on the economics of overtime at a personal level and enhance time management. It consists of an easy-to-fill excel file.
To start using the calculator, please fill out the light greyed area in the inputs section.
There are times when the amount of overtime isn’t clear due to a variety of scenarios. To help users gain clarity and ensure that their overtime is correct, GPetrium has provided a Detailed Work Week (DWW).
In the DWW, users can define the day, start and end periods, lunch break and additional breaks, helping to quickly determine how much time was spent working and how much overtime it may imply.
In the sample provided, the average time worked is treated as 8, which could be expected in Canada for example. Yet, once we look at the total time worked, it becomes clear that extra hours were spent on a 6th day, likely taking you to OT hours.
