Working hours may vary from time to time. For employees with fixed hours, this means that so-called plus and minus hours must be recorded. If more hours are worked than are stated in the contract, then we speak of plus hours. If less hours are worked than the contracted hours, then we speak of minus hours. The plus- and minus hours in Shiftbase are calculated automatically.
For each contract type you can indicate whether plus/minus hours should be tracked. Read here how to set up plus- and minus hours in the contract.
Setting up the contract
The plus and minus hours of employees are determined by the number of contract hours. Read here how to set up these contract hours.
