How do I program different pay rates for different days, times and facilities?
Sometimes certain days, duties or shifts can attract different pay rates. All these pay rate exceptions can now be calculated automatically by Findmyshift once entered in to the system. These entries are called rate exceptions and can be added individually to specific staff members or added to all staff (globally). Global rate exceptions become particularly useful when it's required to pay all staff double time on Sundays, or time and a half on after 7pm. Specific staff entries can be configured in the same way, but only apply to the one staff member.
Both types of rates exceptions are added in a similar fashion however the global rate exceptions are from beneath the rota settings, whilst the staff specific rate exceptions are added on a staff's profile.
Once you've clicked on "Exception" from either screen, you can then begin by clicking on "Add a new exception". You will then be prompted to enter in details about this exception, including a description, the rate amount, when and where it should apply. When it comes to entering in the new rate this can be done in a number of ways. You can use a multiplier for situations like double time, or you can enter a fixed monetary value, for example to double your staff's standard rate, you would enter "x2" as the rate. To enter a fixed rate of £12.90, simply enter 12.90. Once you've entered your exceptions click save to continue.
