# Overtime Rules Settings

In order for Snap Schedule 365 to accurately calculate the amount of
overtime
pay that an employee earns, it is important to define daily overtime
rules and work period overtime rules. Of course, in order for the work
period overtime rules to work, you must define additional work period
settings.

From the **Admin** tab, click System
Settings, then click Overtime
Rules.

## Daily Overtime Rules

You can specify up to three daily overtime rules by checking/unchecking
the corresponding check box next to the rule. Each rule fills in the following
formula:

If an employee works longer than **A** hours and **B**
minutes per day, then multiply the employee's hourly rate by **C**.

Pay rate multipliers can only contain a single digit after the decimal
point (a multiplier of **2.07** will round up to **2.1**).

## Period Overtime Rules

Like the daily overtime rules, you can specify up to three work period
overtime rules by checking/unchecking the corresponding check box next
to the rule. Each rule fills in the following formula:

If an employee works longer than **A** hours and **B**
minutes per work period, then multiply the employee's hourly rate by **C**.

Pay rate multipliers can only contain a single digit after the decimal
point (a multiplier of **2.07** will round up to **2.1**).

## 7th Consecutive Work Day Overtime Rules

You can specify up to three 7th consecutive work day overtime rules
by checking/unchecking the corresponding check box next to the rule.If
an employee works 7 consecutive days in a week, overtime will be calculated
only if the work on the 7th consecutive day meets the minimum daily hours
on any day or the minimum weekly hours over the week. Each rule fills
in the following formula:

If an employee works longer than **A** hours and **B**
minutes on the 7th consecutive work day, and the work that day exceeds
the minimum hours for any [day or week], then multiply the employee's
hourly rate by **C**.

Pay rate multipliers can only contain a single digit after the decimal
point (a multiplier of **2.07** will round up to **2.1**).
