Shifts define the days and times the workers are expected to work for a particular position.
Depending on an organization's needs, shifts may be simple and only include the typical working days in a week (Monday - Friday), or they might be more complex and include specific work days, hours, and start times and/or end times.
Shifts are associated to rate schedules, which are groupings of rates that apply to a position. Rates for workers can change based up differing shifts, so Shift details and Rate Schedules work together to track the rates for nonstandard work hours.
If a rate schedule is assigned to a workers, they will be required to select the Shift when completing their time sheets.
