How to Set The Rest Period Between Shifts

Schedule supports adjusting minimum rest period between shifts.

For example, in Ontario Canada, employees must, with two exceptions, receive at least eight hours free from work between shifts, whether they are "split shifts," "on call shifts," "back-to-back" shifts or ordinary daily shifts. Rest between shifts is not required if: the total time worked during both shifts does not exceed 13 hours.

  1. Click [Settings] Tile
  2. Click [BackOffice Default] from the gray scale menu
  3. Under Schedule Default Settings, adjust Minimum rest period between shifts (in hours).

Adjusting rest period accordingly will prevent assigning shift to the employee right after another shift respecting the "rest period"
