How to record and pay overtime or vacation hours to an employee

Follow these instructions to record and pay overtime or vacation hours to an employee.

To learn how to set a vacation policy, see Set a vacation policy for your employees.

  1. Click Payroll, then Timesheets in the left-hand navigation menu. 
  2. Find the employee's name, and click the arrow to display the fields for overtime and vacation hours. 

  3. Two Overtime rows are available. Enter any overtime hours your employee worked that week.

    Not sure whether you need to enter time and a half or double time? We've collected overtime guidelines in How to handle overtime.

  4. In the Vacation row:
    1. Enter any paid vacation hours your employee used that week, on each day (for example, 8 hours on October 14th).


    2. A lump sum for the total hours of paid vacation time they used (for example, 20 hours at the end of the week).
  5. Click Save.

You're done! Your employee's overtime and vacation hours will be included in, and paid out on, the payroll that covers the dates you chose.
