The system has built-in support for staff members who want to work compressed hours. What this means is that a staff member would be able to work a ‘full week’ in fewer days by working more hours each day that they are working.
To use this feature you must first ensure that you have set up in your contract what the ‘normal’ or default hours are for full time workers. To do this you will first need to go to edit the contract that will be used, and under the working pattern select the number of days and hours that would be considered ‘full time’ i.e. monday to friday, 7 hours a day.
When doing this ensure that you are working on the correct contract and that the staff member you are wanting to implement compressed hours for has been assigned to this contract.
Then to set up compressed hours for a particular staff member you will need to go into ‘manage contract’ which can be found under a staff member’s profile. Then go into edit the contract, and select their standard working days, (i.e. Monday & Tuesday). The key point here is to ensure that under the ‘Less than Full Time?’ option that you have selected the ‘as per their contracted hours’ option, as this means they will not be miscalculated as part time workers.
Once this is input, this will then automatically flag the staff member as working compressed hours, as can be seen when viewing their contract details on their profile, or going to manage a staff member’s contract.
