How to Define an Unpaid Break

Here are the steps to define a n unpaid break:

Step 1. Navigate to “settings” and select “Contracts”

Step 2. Enter the contract and navigate to the “Breaks” section.

Step 3. Tick the box on the left side to set the current break rule as default. Enter the number of shift hours for which you want break hours deducted, and enter the period to be deducted as a break.

For instance, if an employee’s total shift time is greater than 8 hours, you can deduct 0.5 hrs as the break time.

Once running the report, we see that the employee worked for 8.5 hours, with a break of 0.5 hours. Therefore, the number of hours to be paid will be 8.0 hours after deducting the total break time.
