Meal Break Penalty Setting in Time & Attendance
If you live in a state where you're penalized if you don't give your employees a lunch break, the meal break penalty setting is for you. For example, employers in California are typically required to pay out an extra hour of pay if their employee does not take a meal break before their 5th hour of work.
