How Can We Help?
Rest Period Enforcement
The rest period enforcement feature helps organizations who have a mandatory rest period policy in place.
- Within a 72-hour period, the max shift length is 24 hours long and the employee must have 48 hours off before and after a 24-hour shift.
- Within a 24-hour period, the max shift length is 16 hours long and the employee must have 8 hours off before and after a 16-hour shift.
How it Works
- eSchedule will warn a Scheduler when they are breaking your organization’s rest period policy.
- The Scheduler is able to override the warning.
- If a member is submitting a shift bid, eSchedule will allow the member to submit the bid, and will warn the Scheduler at the time of approval that the additional shift violates the rest period policy.
- If you allow members to directly sign-on to shifts, eSchedule will not allow them to sign on to a shift that violates the rest period policy.
Shift Audit Report
If an employee is currently violating your rest period policy, they will appear on the “Shift Audit Report”. This report can be accessed by Administrators by navigating to “Administration > Shift Audit Report”.
