New Sickness Alert

by Lee Porter 11. April 2019 10:57

Sickness Alerts have previously been based around the employees Bradford Factor Score and Milton Mitigation (a similar scoring system to the Bradford Factor but calculated on the hours of sick rather than the Days of sick - allowing for part time variations).

We have now added an alert for a number of incidents of sick within a number of months e.g. 4 incidents in 6 months. There are two of these alerts available which will allow you to have two alert thresholds e.g. 3 in 3 months and 6 in 12 months.

Fixed days of leave

by Lee Porter 21. February 2019 16:06
A significant change has been made to keep the leave and leave years in days the same even after a change to the employees Working day figure. The Working day found on the employees work/edit page is used to determine how many hours are to be booked (on their work pattern) before a 'day' of leave is counted e.g. 7 hours. In the past when you changed the working day to fit a new work pattern it would change the days calculation and an adjustment had to be made to the leave year to reflect this. More...

Document e-signatures and review

by Lee Porter 5. October 2018 12:48

A file can be uploaded, accessible by everyone in your Company such as your Company Handbooks or by an individual employee such as their Contract of employment.  Until now this was a library of files that the employee/HR could access for reference.  Any access they made was logged.

In addition to this you can now set that the employee is REQUIRED to read and/or accept them with a digital signature.  This might be amendments to their contract or new versions of an important Company document.  Any document that still needs read or signed will be highlighted on the employees Dashboard.  HR have access to a list of documents where these actions are still outstanding.
