Time and attendance monitoring software automatically issues warning when low manning levels are expected
Fully automated time and attendance monitoring software can help alert managers when staffing levels are expected to go under a pre-set level – for example, when workers decide to go on strike.
This is exactly what will happen across the NHS, where junior doctors have voted overwhelmingly for industrial action in a row over the imposition of new contracts by the government.
98 per cent of the 37,000 junior doctors balloted voted to strike over the changes, which the British Medical Association (BMA) claims will stop employees refusing to work beyond their statutory hours. Strike action is currently planned for the 1, 8 and 16 of December.
BMA leader, Dr Mark Porter, said: “We regret the inevitable disruption that this will cause but it is the government’s adamant insistence on imposing a contract that is unsafe for patients in the future, and unfair for doctors now and in the future, that has brought us to this point.”
He added: “It is still possible to get back around the negotiating table to deliver a contract that is safe for patients, contains the necessary contractual safeguards to prevent junior doctors being overworked and properly recognises evening and weekend work.”
Tensor Time and Attendance monitoring software automatically informs managers of missing employees
Determining exactly which employees went on strike and just how much of their pay is due to be retained is not always an easy task for HR departments, but Tensor’s WinTA.NET can actually make everything a lot smoother.
First and foremost, our comprehensive, the affordable Time and Attendance solution allows HR managers to generate a range of useful reports, such as Absence Summary or Job Summary, that will provide precise information on the people who actually participated to the strike and didn’t attend their usual work schedule.
WinTA .NET Enterprise also reliably tracks the exact hours worked by a particular employee over a year, not to mention the fact that the system can be very easily integrated with the Tensor Access Control solutions.
