You might notice some new paid break fields in the shift edit panel in your Ento rosters, that look like this 👇
These paid break fields will also appear in:
the workschedules section of employee records in Core HR > People > Employees, and
the import template for Work Schedules available from Core HR > Account Data > Import Data.
Do I have to use the paid break fields?
No, you can continue to roster as usual and leave the new paid break fields blank if you wish.
You can also continue to use the existing import template for workschedules, without the paid break columns, if you wish.
Why use paid and unpaid breaks in shifts?
The paid break fields are a new feature that can be used to communicate break times to employees.
Payroll note: Paid breaks don't have any impact on the duration of worked hours recorded for the shift, or the pay rules applied to the shift.
If you choose to display paid breaks, they will be shown in the Employee Area (along with unpaid breaks) like this 👇
If your staff use the TimeClock for clocking in/out and you enter paid break fields for a shift, they will be displayed alongside unpaid breaks.
