as we are a startup practice. We are paying for holidays so our employees
will get 8 hours of pay for today. Tomorrow the office is closed and they
can use paid time off (PTO). How do most people handle PTO if it would
cause your employees to go into overtime for the week? Do you cap
the number of hours the employee can elect to use so they can’t go over 40?
is due on hours actually WORKED.
So in your example, let’s assume someone worked 25 hours Monday- Wednesday and
you give them 16 hours of benefit time for Thursday and Friday. That’s 41 hours;
however, they only WORKED 25 hours and therefore, you would simply pay them
straight time for all 41 hours, OT of 1.5 x their hourly rate is NOT necessary
in this example.
