4. Slab-wise Late Deduction

  • HR users can now define detailed rules for ‘Late deduction
  • Multiple ranges can be defined for different periods of the late timing
  • Unique configurations can be made for deductions at every range

These changes would be reflected in the Payroll posting.



  • If punch time is delayed by 15 mins then half an hour deduction would be considered.
  • If punch time is delayed by 30 mins then a one-hour deduction would be considered.
  • If punch time is delayed by 45 mins then a two-hour deduction would be considered.


For example,

Let’s consider, an ABC company has a general shift time of 9:30 am to 6:30 am.

  • If an employee punch-in is between 9:40 am to 10:00 am, then half an hour will be deducted from their total working hours.
  • If an employee punch-in is between 09:55 am to 10:30 am, then one hour will be deducted from their total working hours.
  • If an employee punch-in is between 10:25 am to 11:15 am, then two hours will be deducted from their total working hours.
