Summary

Shift Differential Policies Page

A shift differential policy is a group of rules that describes how your company pays shift
premiums. Shift differentials allow you to specify extra monetary amounts paid for hours
worked during certain times for the day. For example, your company might pay an extra 15
percent to employees who work the graveyard shift.
XactTime uses rules to specify each day, time, and premium in the template. Each shift
differential policy can contain multiple rules.
Because each employee may only have one shift differential policy assigned, you must
include every rule that is likely to apply.
