Scheduling fast changing businesses – Working from home

Posted on: March 24, 2020 | Categories: StaffRosters Blog Working from home

While many businesses are in serious trouble, already closed or on the verge of collapse, some businesses have had to employ many more employees. Many businesses now have employees working from home. I have been saying for several weeks the world has gone crazy. Reading the stories this week is gut-wrenching with hundreds of thousands of people heading very quickly to millions of people out of work, the flow-on effect is going to be massive.

Fair Work changes affect thousands of businesses

Posted on: March 11, 2020 | Categories: Complaince Fair Work Modern Awards StaffRosters Blog

Fair Work Australia changes come into effect 1st of March 2020. Does this affect your business?

Who is impacted?

Many awards have already been impacted including the Clerks-Private Sector Award and Pharmacy award. The next major industries to be impacted include the hospitality industry general award and the Restaurant Industry Award. These two awards alone will impact thousands of businesses and millions of employees.

Why were these changes made?

These changes have been made to help salaried employees who were working 50, 60, 70, 80 hours a week and more but only getting paid for 40 hours .

How does it work?

Effectively salaried staff now need to sign in and out each day and based on the hours worked over 12 months they must not be worse off than the appropriate modern award.

What can I do?

If you’re not currently asking salaried staff to sign in and out you should start, if you use timesheets for the purpose you should consider electronic for easy annualized reporting.

Managing unavailability in retail

How you manage unavailability today could be a mixture of text messages, Facebook posts, spreadsheets, notes on your PC and even writing on your hand.

Do you feel like this some days? Especially when you have the schedule all sorted and another person calls in sick!

The guy behind I reckon has seen this before! He also looks like the NCIS guy!

Adding your work schedule to your google calendar – Google helped to solve this issue

Customer……

I work a rotating shift schedule which is standard every month. Basically I want a shortcut (likely by using a weekly/daily repeat function) to set up the hours for the year without having to go in and individually add each day. For example, the shift is set up as follows:

Beginning 24 January – Monday – Sunday from 6am-2pm
Beginning 3 Feb – Thursday-Wednesday from 10pm-6am
Beginning 14 Feb – Mon-Thurs from 2-10pm

Of course, you scatter some random days off because the hours end up being more than you actually need, but in general, I would like to repeat those all on the same days. I attempted to use the weekly repeat, but it does it from the end of the shift, not the beginning, so when you schedule out 4 weeks from a night shift it messes up the days.

Google answer…..

HEY DUDE, I JUST DID MINE AND THIS POST BY KiethR2010 BELOW HELPED ME IT… WAS EASY.

ALL YOU BASICALLY DO IS REPEAT THROUGH DAILY AND CHOSE THE SET DAYS. MY SCHEDULE IS WORKS 2 DAY SHIFTS 2 NIGHTS AND OFF 4 SO I ENTERED THE FIRST DAY IN MY CALENDAR THEN REPEATED IT EVERY 8 DAYS. IT WORKS LIKE MAGIC LOL
