Overtime is part of work - Let's make it transparent

In most organisations employees do overtime. Allowing them to record it helps with compensation and motivation.

Overtime tracking

How it works

  • LeaveWizard allows the recording of Overtime in either days or hours and the ability to report on the recorded overtime so you can calculate compensation correctly.

  • A popular form of compensation is converting overtime to Time Off In Lieu. You can set up automatic conversion of Overtime to TOIL once overtime is approved.

  • LeaveWizard allows you to set up a different set of approvers for your overtime requests for added flexibility.


Fully integrated

Our Overtime and TOIL solution is fully integrated within LeaveWizard. This means you get access to the same level of reporting and approvals set-up. If configured, automatic conversion of Overtime into TOIL is taken care of by our system.

Ensure fairness through transparency

Overtime and compensating it can be a sensitive subject for many employees. By using LeaveWizard you will ensure that there is transparency in your process and employees have confidence in the correctness of the calculation and the overtime compensation.


Configure overtime/TOIL

  • In LeaveWizard, you can have different event types that can accept Overtime to TOIL conversion.

  • If you prefer you can just record and track overtime and not allow any conversion into Time off in lieu.

  • LeaveWizard also accepts overtime in days or hours and allows converting to TOIL only to types using the same units.

  • Overtime requests can be approved by team leaders/administrators or you can have a completely separate approval configuration

Overtime and TOIL - in depth

Recording Overtime

  • When you have configured Overtime for your employees they will be allowed to request it.

  • If you have allowed conversion to TOIL then they will be able to select that option too.

  • Booking overtime is otherwise very similar to booking leave.

  • If you use different pay rates for overtime LeaveWizard allows you to specify these too.

Overtime approvers

  • In LeaveWizard, you can configure different approval flows 

  • The most common configuration would be to use the approver configuration for leave and absence 

  • This is either team leaders or administrators, depending on what you have configured for relevant event types.

  • If you however need a completely different set of approvers then LeaveWizard allows you to do that.
