Add standard unsocial time periods

Updated 1 month ago by Leigh Hutchens

Please note you must currently configure standard UT periods in Classic.
Using standard unsocial time (UT) periods in Quinyx is optional, and you can use UT periods on an agreement level in stead.

What is standard unsocial time and how is it used?

Unsocial Time (UT) is an enhanced (or supplemented) rate of pay used to reward and correctly compensate staff for working odd or undesirable hours. This could for example be night shifts, weekends, or bank holidays.

Using unsocial time you can define the windows during which these additional payouts should apply, and can configure the different levels of extra payout that should be automatically attributed to an employee working during one of these predefined windows.

UT periods are defined on day level and are standard for the account. If there are agreements where different UT periods apply, it's defined in that particular agreement. UT is used to set periods which, on a organization level, should automatically attribute additional payouts to an employee who logs a shift during this window.

For example, in the standard unsocial time configuration you set UT-3 for every Sunday, from 00:00 - 24:00. This means that if any employee logs a shift in that window, it will automatically inherit the additional UT-3 payout as defined in this configuration.

A manager can configure multiple variations of overtime and unsocial time configurations, to account for different payout or compensation packages. For example, they can configure UT-1 to pay out 50% extra during a defined period while UT-2 pays out an extra 75%.

This applies only to cycling hours Monday - Sunday and for bank holidays or special events.
