Information for employees about using Shift Agreements.
Employees can “Accept” or “Decline” shifts using the "Shift Agreement" feature on WorkRoster.
Upcoming Shifts can be "accepted" or "declined" from the employee’s homepage
or from the web roster view
and also from the mobile app or mobile site.
Accepting Shifts is an excellent way for employees to inform their roster manager that they know about their upcoming shifts.
It's also possible for employees to "Pre-Accept" or "Pre-Decline" shifts that they are not yet assigned to. This information can then be used by roster managers when they are making shift assignments.
Please note: Some managers and workforces do not allow shifts to be declined. Please note also, some Workforces do not use the "Shift Agreement" feature at all. Also, some Workforces have set restrictions on when shifts can be accepted or declined.
Employees can check the workforce settings to see how the Shift Agreement feature has been configured for their workforce and they should speak to their roster manager about how they are expected to use Shift Agreements.
If your workforce allows shifts to be "declined", then "declining" a shift does not automatically imply that you are not required to work. You should probably contact a roster manager directly about the shift assignment in question.
