Human Resources / Settings / Payroll Settings California Overtime Settings

CentralReach’s standard payroll report calculates the California Overtime Setting as follows:

  • After 7 days of timesheets in a row, the 7th day is overtime
  • After 8 hours in one day, anything over 8 hours in one day is overtime
  • Over 40 hours per week (not including overtime accrued in over 8 hours per day) is considered overtime
  • Any other requests for overtime calculations, e.g. double overtime, must be handled through a custom payroll report and is outside the scope of the California overtime setting

California Overtime Blended Rates are calculated as follows:

  • Total Pay/Total hours work for a given overtime period
  • Example: If you are paying for the dates of 15th-30th and the workweek starts on the 12th, the system calculates the values for the week of the 12th toward the blended rate. Those are the hours we are using for calculating overtime, therefore they are the hours we use to calculate the blended rate

Human Resources / Settings / Payroll Settings Colorado Overtime Settings

CentralReach’s standard payroll report calculates Colorado’s overtime rates as one-and-a-half times the employee’s regular hourly rate, and automatically selects the calculation that generates the greatest payment of wages when working in excess of:

  1. Forty hours per workweek
  2. Twelve hours per workday
  3. Twelve consecutive hours, regardless of whether the work period overlaps into the second day

Examples:

  • If an employee works 13 hour periods for 3 days in a workweek, he will be paid 3 hours of overtime based on rule number 2 above, even though rule number 1 is not satisfied (total hours worked in the workweek = 30 hours).
  • If an employee works a 14 hour period one day, followed by 4 working days of  8 hours periods, for a total of 46 hours, the employee will be paid 6 overtime hours based on rule number 1 above, versus what rule number 2 would have calculated (only 2 overtime hours for the 14 hours workday).
