Working Patterns

Every employee must have a Working Pattern that defines which days of the week they usually work

This is used to work out how many actual working days are lost due to holidays and for calculating Statutory Pay.

Default Working Pattern

We automatically create a Working Pattern for you with a working week of Monday to Friday, 7.5 hours each day.

You can view this by clicking the employer name in the main menu and then going to Settings -> Working Patterns.

You can edit and add Working Patterns here.

Set Working Pattern for an Employee

If you only have one Working Pattern then all employees will be assigned to it.

If you have multiple Working Patterns then employees will be assigned to the default Working Pattern.

You can edit this on a per-employee basis by going to the employee record and then to the “Employment” tab.

You will see a drop-down list where you can choose which Working Pattern to use for the employee.

Note: this drop-down list will only appear if you have multiple Working Patterns.
