A shift worker will be in Flare under a 24 hour variable work pattern. Applying for leave under this work pattern is slightly different to other work patterns.
As a shift worker you may have the ability to work any hour during the week. This allows a shift worker to be rostered on variable hours in a 7-day week. When requesting for leave, you must nominate the dates and the total number of hours for the period you are applying for. Flare is not integrated with your roster and so you must input these details.
Navigate to Employees > Leave and select New Request. The following screen will appear.
- Select the start and end date.
- Ensure that the Set hours tickbox is selected and fill in the amount of hours that equates to the total hours in shift work that you are applying for leave.
- Fill in the appropriate fields ensuring that the Leave type is the appropriate selection (if sick leave is selected there is the ability to upload a medical certificate).
- When completed, click Submit and your manager will be sent an approval request email.
