Explanation

Overtime Rule

This allows you to select an overtime rule for the system to follow for this employee type.

FTE

Fulltime Equivalent is used in reporting to compare full time, part time casual and enterprise employees.

Short and Long Week

Short and Long Weeks are used by the optimised scheduler to optimise minimum and maximum shifts in a week. If the same hours are worked every week just enter the Short Week values.

 

 

 

Rotating Shift Mix

Employees working permanent night shift are paid a higher loading than employees working rotating night shift.

Permanent night shift is based on the percentage of your shifts worked on night shift.

In the example an employee who worked more than 33% of their shifts on nights would be classed by the system as being on permanent night shift.

The optimised scheduler minimises costs by keeping night shifts below this threshold.
