Workdays, Rest days and Holidays

  1. Overview
    • You may set up employee workdays via Leave ❯ Workday or Attendance ❯ Workday. You will determine how many days that an employee will need to report to work within a week. For instance, some organizations may have 5 workdays per week, from Monday to Friday, or from Sunday to Thursday. Meanwhile, you may optionally specify the Start time, End time and work Duration for each workday, which is useful to determine Tardiness and Overtime/ Undertime.
    • Via Workday, you may select specific colors for rest days, which will be use to highlight rest days on Leave ❯ Planner and Leave ❯ Schedule.
    • Holidays may refer to public holidays, or any specific days that an employee is not required to work. Holidays are set via Leave ❯ Holiday or Attendance ❯ Holiday
  2. Handling Alternate Weekly Rest Days
    • Let's assume that a business requires employees to be present at work for each alternate Saturday, while Sunday will be a day off.
    • To handle such arrangement, you will have to set up Workdays so that Sunday is the ONLY day off.
    • Then you will need to specify those Saturdays that employees are not required to work as holidays using Holiday module.
  3. Multiple Workday and Holiday Scheme
    • Multiple Scheme. Some business environments may be more complex that employees may not rest at same days, such as:
      1. Employees may have different fixed weekly rest days
      2. Regional offices that may be following different State gazetted days off and public holidays
    • Workday and Holiday Assignment. By default, all employees are assigned to the DEFAULT Workday and Holiday. In case you have more than one Workday or Holiday, you may assign the Workday or Holiday to the employees via Employee ❯ Employment Terms.
  4. Overtime, Undertime and Tardiness Tracking
    • If your organization tracks employee Overtime, Undertime or Tardiness, you may customize your settings via Leave ❯ Workday or Attendance ❯ Workday.
    • Overtime could be tracked for workdays, rest days and public holidays. You will be able to check employee Overtime via Attendance ❯ Management, a blue color or positive value in the "Overtime (Hours)" column indicates extra hours worked.
    • Undertime is only tracked for workdays. Undertime tracks employees who have not worked sufficient hours for a workday. This may be due to late coming to work, or leaving the work earlier than allowed. You will be able to check employee Undertime via Attendance ❯ Management, a red color or negative value in the "Overtime (Hours)" column indicates insufficient hours worked.
    • Tardiness is only tracked for workdays. You will also need to specify Start time for workdays in order to track Tardiness. If the Start time of a workday is not set, Tardiness for that particular workday will not be tracked. You will be able to check employee Tardiness via Attendance ❯ Management, a red color "First Check In" value indicates reporting to work late.
    • The work duration for Overtime and Undertime cut-off points is Actual Work Duration (i.e. after taking into consideration of Break Time).
