Setting up working time limitations

Follow

Working time rules are great for letting Planday assist you in creating fair schedules for all of your employees, while also ensuring you adhere to rules and regulations.

There are eight different types of working time rules you can set up, and this gives you great flexibility in finding the perfect setup for your business:

  • 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
  • Frequecy for weekends up

 

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 rule, or cancel.
