To calculate an employee's overtime payments using the weighted average method, the employee must first be set up to use a WAOT pay item.

  1. Choose Setup > Employees to open the Employees dialog.
  2. Highlight and select an eligible employee, and then click the Edit button.
  3. Click the Earnings tab, and in the Description column choose the WAOT pay item from the drop-down list.

    Note: You do not need to enter an amount in the Rate column because the WAOT item automatically calculates using the .5 premium amount.

  4. Click the Item Properties icon to make sure the frequency of the new pay item matches that of the employee's other pay items.

    If an employee has a WAOT pay item set up, all other pay items used by that employee in all departments are also subject to the WAOT calculation. If the employee has pay items you wish to exclude from WAOT, you will need to set up an identical pay item excluded from WAOT. See the Excluding a pay item from weighted average overtime calculation procedure.

  5. Set up all eligible employees with the WAOT pay item. CSA will use the weighted average overtime calculation only on employees using the WAOT pay item.
