Agreement Templates - Unsocial Hours

Updated 3 weeks ago by Leigh Hutchens

This article relates to Classic.

The Use default periods for unsocial hours and overtime box is available under the UT periods tab. The box is generally checked and means that the agreement template inherits the default unsocial hours periods which are inserted in the submenu Unsocial hours/Overtime/Public holidays under the Time and Settings tabs. The benefit of this is that you do not need to add the unsocial hours periods for each individual agreement template if the unsocial hours periods are the same for all agreement templates. 

On the other hand, the Use default periods for unsocial hours and overtime box must be unchecked if this agreement template is to be covered by other unsocial hours periods or no unsocial hours periods at all. When the box has been unchecked, any new periods can be added by clicking the Add button. This will allow you to simply apply different unsocial hours periods for different staff groups, for instance, if you have several collective agreements at the workplace, or if only certain staff groups are to be covered by unsocial hours periods and others not.

Note that the Use default periods for unsocial hours and overtime box determines the link to both the unsocial hours periods and overtime periods, which means that if you uncheck this box, the connection to the default overtime periods under the unsocial hours periods tab is also lost. See the chapter on unsocial hours periods for instructions about how to add unsocial hours periods.
