Checking compliance is achieved by running a Working Time Regulations report. This guide will look at:
The Working Time Regulations Report looks at all the time a Group of employees has worked over a certain period, to ensure it meets your legal obligations.
The ‘typical’ period of interest for the Working Time Regulations is 17 weeks - that is, in most cases, employees who have not opted out must not work more than 48 hours per week, averaged out over 17 weeks.
However, because there are different rules for different industries and different ages of employees, Focus allows you to define your own date ranges for the report. This guide will assume you are setting up a ‘standard’ 17 week report.
You may wish to save it as a template in order to use the settings again for a future report, or to simply keep it for reference.
Whenever you select ‘Templates’, it will now appear in the ‘Load Options’ list.
It can also be deleted at any time by selecting ‘Templates’ and ‘Delete Options’.
‘Employees Summary’ is always the default view. If you wish, you can change this to ‘Group Summary’ (giving an overall Group total) or ‘Detail’ (giving a detailed breakdown of employees’ day-by-day working hours).
You can change how your report looks using the various ‘Options’.
Understand how to get this value from Focus for whatever date range you wish.
The Exceptions Report shows the number of Exceptions for individual employees over a certain period of time.
Employees Reports can be created to contain a variety of information from staff contact details to who the First Aiders are in the workplace.
