Permissible time allows absence in the time and attendance software without allocating Normal Time to an employee’s paid day off. This further enables the clocking system to correctly calculate an employee’s overtime over a pay period in that Short Normal Time will not be allocated due to the use of this technique. Payroll may require this technique to be implemented to display an employee’s Normal hours split from their adjusted hours(sick, annual, etc.) totals on their payslips and not paying an employee for both.
Should permissible time not be implemented in Jarrison Time, it may result in an employee being short paid for absence.
Please follow the below steps to successfully setup Permissible Time:
1) All adjustments that need to allow permissible time will need to have time categories modified. From Setup > Adjustments allocate ‘Permissible Time’ instead of ‘Normal Time’ to adjustments as needed. You may need to create the ‘Permissible Time’ time category if it is not already available (from Setup > Time Categories).
2) In Day Programs (Setup > Day Programs) a formula needs to be applied in each day program, the formula will subtract Permissible Time (added via Adjustment) from Target Time (per Profile tab) and store the result in another Time Category. The Target Time must be correct for each day involved, as it is used in this permissible time method. You may need to create the ‘My Target’ Time Category for storing results if it is not already available (from Setup > Time Categories).
3) The final step is done in the Pay Groups (under Setup), a rule must be added that will sum daily ‘My Target’ times (calculated by each Day Program for the period) and become the basis from which to determine overtime pushing or pulling.
Below is a sample output showing the results of permissible time being applied.
