Working hours may vary from time to time. For employees with fixed hours, this means that so-called Plus 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 minus hours in Shiftbase are calculated automatically.
