Sometimes certain days, duties or shifts can attract different pay rates. All these pay rate exceptions can now be calculated automatically by Findmyshift once entered in to the system. These entries are called rate exceptions and can be added individually to specific employees or added to all employees (globally). Global rate exceptions become particularly useful when it's required to pay all employees double time on Sundays, or time and a half on after 7pm. Specific employee entries can be configured in the same way, but only apply to the one employee.

Both types of rates exceptions are added in a similar fashion, but are found in different areas of the site. Global rate exceptions are found beneath the "Settings" > "Pay rates" menu, while the rates for an individual are found on their employee profile.

Once you've clicked on "Exception" from either screen, you can then begin by clicking on "Add a new exception". You will then be prompted to enter in details about this exception, including a description, the rate amount, when and where it should apply. When it comes to entering in the new rate this can be done in a number of ways. You can use a multiplier for situations like double time, or you can enter a fixed monetary value, for example to double your employee's standard rate, you would enter x2 as the rate. To enter a specific hourly rate of $12.90, simply enter 12.90. Once you've entered your exceptions click save to continue.
