Work schedules include the days and times that employees are expected to be working. Day breaker options on the work schedule calendar define the start of the week on the time entry calendar and the time of day that work begins. They also specify how to assign dates to calculated time blocks. A default work schedule calendar is Sunday as the start of the week and 12:00 AM as the beginning of the day.
Workday assigns the same calculated date to all time blocks on a work day, regardless of whether the time blocks cross calendar days. This has an important impact on calculations such as standard daily and weekly overtime calculations. The day breaker ensures that a calculated date represents an exact 24-hour period. Therefore, daily overtime calculations will apply over a 24-hour period regardless of the worker’s shift or actual work times. Similarly, weekly overtime calculations will apply over a 168 hour period regardless of the worker’s shift or actual work times.
