Night shifts and periodic overtime handled by time and attendance system
Night shift workers kicked off strike action taking place this week. Coastguard workers walked out over station closures they say would mean the loss of life-saving local knowledge around the UK’s coastline. The industrial action began with night workers last Friday followed by day shift workers from 11am to 12pm on Saturday (June 9). The strikes alternated between night and day shift strikes up to and including the day shift today (Friday). Driving test examiners this week also took action.
If your firm or organisation includes many complex shifts and pay arrangements in its weekly schedule then a Tensor Time and Attendance network is the best there is at sorting rotas and rosters. The WinTA system handles all major hours calculation methods. A number of basic rules control how hours are calculated. These include settings to separate ‘worked time’ into different overtime rates, plus night shift working. Periodic Overtime is used to calculate overtime on weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis.
