Daily thresholds are the number of hours that an employee must work in a single working day at one rate of pay before a different rate of pay applies. A typical example of a daily threshold is where an employee must work for 4 hours at an overtime rate of 1.5 (time and a half) before they can accumulate overtime pay at a rate of 2.0 (double time).

Thresholds override the standard payment structures defined by the timebands that make up the work pattern for each day.

Daily thresholds are applied to individual timebands on the Timeband Thresholds screen.

Note: You must make sure that you apply the threshold to the correct timeband in the appropriate work pattern.

To maintain thresholds for a week or another span of days, use the Weekly Thresholds screen.
