< How can I pay Staff who work Shifts or are Hourly Paid? < How do I Set Up my Staff for Shift Working?



In order for your staff to be able to record their shifts, the correct settings must be in the system to ensure that shifts are recorded accurately:

  • for each staff member that will be paid hourly for their shift

  • whether the staff member is eligible for their travel time to and from work to be included in their shift

  • if you wish to change the travel allowance setting for the individual staff member 

  • having the correct staff type to identify shift workers and remove their compensation from the Compensation Report
