Entering hours worked into Claims

When entering hours worked into Claims remember that the time must be entered in hours & minutes separated by a colon, not in decimal time. Entering the hours worked in a decimal format instead of actual time format could result in incorrect payments to staff.

The printed letter will, however, show the hours worked as decimal time.

For example, If a Teacher works for five and three-quarter hours it must be entered as 05:45 – not as 05:75 – but the resultant letter will state 5.75 hours worked.
