In this article in The Rules Series, we show how to configure the rules engine to use the Within rostered length condition.
How the Within rostered length condition works
The Within rostered length condition matches time for the employee that is within the original rostered length of the shift.
This condition can be used in the inverse to apply a match to timesheet hours that are in excess of the original rostered length of the shift, regardless of how the exceed the length of the shift.
Each timesheet is evaluated individually.
In this example, each an employee is rostered for their normal shift, but records some extra time on their timesheet, having started 30 minutes early and finishing 15 minutes late. The employee is paid an additional 45 minutes of overtime, for time worked in excess of their rostered shift. Note that in this example, the time is added to the end of the shift.
Note: this is different from the example in the Within rostered hours condition in that the match is only effective for hours worked in excess of the shift hours, as opposed to any hours outside of the original shift as in the Within rostered hours condition, regardless of whether the employee worked a longer shift or not.
