Tinker Bell is scheduled to work 7:30 am until 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
On Monday, 03/22/10, Tinker Bell clocks in at her scheduled start time of 7:30 am. She takes a meal break at 11:30 am. At 12:25 pm she clocks out due to a personal emergency. Tinker Bell returns to work at 2:30 pm and works the remainder of her shift.
You will Take a Meal Deduction for Monday, 03/22/10.
NOTE: A corresponding row must be added to designate whether the time will be paid or unpaid.
Click the button to the right of the Skip/Take Meal field on row 1.
The system automatically takes a meal deduction after employee has worked 5 or more hours. In this exercise, Tinker Bell worked 4.91 hours between the hours of 7:30 am and 12:25 pm. She then worked 1.50 hours between the hours of 2:30 pm and 4:00 pm.
Even though Tinker Bell worked a total of 6.41 hours, the system did not automatically take the meal deduction because each instance was less than 5 hours. When this happens, you will need to force a meal deduction by selecting the Take option in the Skip/Take Meal drop-down list.
NOTE: By selecting Take the system deducted a 30-minute meal and reduced the Hours total from 4.91 to 4.41 on row 1.
You must now add the corresponding row designating whether the time Tinker Bell was away from work will be paid or unpaid. After Time Admin has run, you can view the correct Payable Details and Totals.
