Allowed Time

The time during which an employee is paid while not working because of a situation beyond his/her control. Allowed time is granted more frequently to salaried employees than to wage earners,. Allowed time is usually finite; after its expiration, the employee often must begin to forgo payment. Examples of allowed time include sick time or grieving time. It is also called waiting time. It should not be confused with a waiting period.

allowed time

the maximum amount of time which an employee should take to perform a specific production task. Allowed times tend to be used in INCENTIVE BONUS SCHEMES as the basis for computing bonus payments. If the allowed time is exceeded no bonus is payable. However, if the actual time taken to perform the particular task is less than the allowed time, a bonus would be payable based upon the amount of time saved. See WORK MEASUREMENT.
