Setting up Lateness Penalties
Lateness penalties are relevant to users who have the Time & Attendance module enabled.
1. Go to the Scheduler page
2. Click on the Lateness penalties tab
3. Click Add new, and input the relevant penalty information
There are the following options of Lateness Penalties:
This penalty will deduct PAID vacation leave based on the rules provided, when an employee clocks in later than the stipulated lateness period allowed.
Subtract basic hours
This penalty will deduct UNPAID vacation leave based on the rules provided, when an employee clocks in later than the stipulated lateness period allowed. The employee will not be paid for these hours in payroll.
For both options, you will need to set up the rules for deduction as shown in the example below.
Linking Lateness Penalties to shift templates
Once the lateness penalties rules are set up, these need to be linked to the relevant Shift Template. If the Schedule is already created and/or published, you will need to unpublish and clear the shifts first. Then, re-generate the shifts, in order for the new settings to be included in the shifts generated.
