Frequently asked questions
- How do you keep track of employee breaks?
Employers need to determine how to keep track of employee breaks, whether they are paid or unpaid. Tracking manually in spreadsheets or break room board may not be the most scalable option. Staff rota software can track employee breaks so companies can ensure they are planned and in compliance with break laws.
- Do you have a break rota template?
Many local areas require strict break laws for businesses. Deputy offers an extensive library of pre-created shift templates that provide a guide to the breaks required for each shift with a focus on businesses that employ shift-based employees.
