When an employee submits a timesheet with overtime hours worked, as the Customer, you need to approve this timesheet before we can process it in payroll. 

In this article, we will cover the following:

Establish who can approve timesheets

By default, company owners and company admins can approve timesheets for overtime for any employee. Alternatively, you can create a customized role that gives a company user the right to approve timesheets.

How to review timesheets

When an employee submits a timesheet, the company users with approval permissions for time tracking will receive a notification about any timesheets with overtime that need approval.

To approve a submitted timesheet: 

    1. On your Remote dashboard, click on the Time tracking tab.
    2. To review the overtime timesheet, click on the three dots icon then choose View breakdown.

    3. Once you've reviewed the overtime timesheet and you're ready to approve it, tick the box of the associated timesheet then click on Approve overtime.
      Optional: You can add extra compensation and include a note.


If an employee submits hours worked or if your approval happens after the payroll cutoff date, any overtime compensation will be pushed to the following payroll run.

Manage incorrect timesheets

If you spot any errors or inconsistencies in timesheets that include overtime, please reach out to the employee to clarify. If you need to make changes to a timesheet you've already approved, please put in a request through the Request hub.
