Service Type

Work Types do not directly integrate to Advanced Payroll or PayGlobal at this time. As such the Service Type field should be left blank.

What's the purpose of a Work Type?

Work types allow you to easily mark that a shift includes extra duties or allowances. They also serve 2 special purposes relating to Work Flows in Advanced Workforce Management.

  1. Minimum Breaks.  - The Automatic Break function requires a Minimum Break work type be configured.
  2. Public Holiday not Worked.  - In order for Public Holidays to pay out correctly when an employee is not working (either due to Leave, or to not having a shift that day due to closure/short staffing) a Public Holiday not Worked work Type must be configured.
