The first step in getting started with compliance is making an assessment of which compliance rules are required for your business.
By default, break allocation and overtime rules have been configured based on Californian legislation. If that's your business covered then simply flick the switch and turn the rules on, otherwise you will need to configure the rules to meet the legislation / company policy that applies to your business.
Once a rule is turned on the rule applies to all workers by default. Workers not requiring compliance can be made exempt from all compliance rules.

Custom Rule Group
When your business has sets of workers that require different compliance rules you can manage this by creating custom rule groups.

Assigning Workers to Rule Groups
A worker can only belong to a single rule group or be exempt from compliance rules altogether. Assigning workers to rule groups can be done in bulk from the company network or on an individual basis from the worker profile.

Warnings & Restrictions
Choose how you want to respond when a compliance rule is triggered; there are three different responses to choose from:
Take no action - when a rule is triggered it is not be flagged in anyway
Mark as warning - when a rule is triggered a warning is created on both shifts and timecards as appropriate
Restrict - when a rule is triggered by a shift in the schedule then a warning is created and the shift is restricted from being published
