The company's Working Schedule is made up of the expected working hours and break hours, from Monday to Sunday. Alternatively, should the employee work flexible hours, you can set up the working schedule as Flexible.
On WorkForce, you can easily set up the company's Working Schedule, and by default, all employees that you create will follow this schedule. Alternatively, you can assign a different working schedule for a specific employee if the employee works different hours from the company's working schedule.
Working schedules are mainly used for the following cases:
- Calculation of overtime and short hours: Overtime and short hours are calculated according to the employee's working schedule. For example, if an employee is scheduled to work 8 hours on Mondays, and the employee punches for 10 hours, the system will calculate the difference as overtime.
- Booking of Leave: When booking a full day of leave, the hours deducted from the employee's entitlement are based on the employee's working schedule.
Step 1: Open your company settings page by clicking on Product Switcher>WorkForce, and then click on Settings>Working Schedule from the left-hand side menu.
Step 2: By default, the company's working schedule is set to Monday to Friday, 8 hours per day. However, you can update the working schedule to suit your requirements.
Step 3: Click on the Save button in the bottom-right corner.
- Tick the Working on Public Holidays field if public holidays are part of the normal company schedule. If this is not ticked, then any hours worked on a public holiday will be added as overtime. This only applies if you're using WorkForce Timekeeper.
