Working time limitations are useful for keeping track of how much, and when your employees work, and can help ensure you stay within working time regulations. Working time limitations can be combined and set up to build an advanced warning system that will help you in your planning.
There are eight different types of working time rules you can set up:
- Maximum shift duration per day
- Minimum hours off work between shifts
- Maximum number of working days in one week
- Maximum number of work hours in range
- Maximum number of working days in the date range
- Minimum number of work hours in range
- Maximum number of working days in a row
- Frequency for weekends off
Setting up the rules you need
Navigation: Settings > Schedule > Working time rules
What working time rules to set up varies a lot between industries and markets. We often see rules set up for Maximum number of work hours in range, and Maximum shift duration per day.
With this in place, you'll receive warnings when you try to schedule employees for too many hours in a single day, or say in a 4-week period.
When you're in violation with one of your rules you can edit the shift, ignore the violation, or cancel.
