Awards | Shift Breaks - Adding a new break type


1) Overview

This feature is used to enter new break types into an award.

Some organisations have non-standard employment agreements with their staff that may necessitate the creation of a new break type.


2) Create a custom break type

  1. Click Organisation.
  2. Click Awards.
  3. Click the Award.
  4. Scroll down to Break types.
    • Here you can create the breaks that will be used through the award.
  5. After creating some Break Types, locate and click the particular Award Pay Group you wish to add the break to (Note: pay groups can also be located within positions at the top of the award):
  6. Click the base award pay group you'd like to add the break to.
  7. Click Edit Award pay group.
  8. Scroll down to the Break types section.
  9. Tick the breaks you'd like to add to the award pay group.
  10. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
  11. Click Save and Update.


4) Minimum break length

  • A minimum on a break can be set to automatically enforce this value. An example of this would be a 30 min lunch break. If a user takes 24 mins, the system can automatically adjust to 30 mins.
  • To set the minimum, follow the steps above and enter a value in the minimum field.
