  • Selecting multiple rest days and shifts and clicking on “Edit shifts”, will only edit the shifts


When the rest day is planned in shifts and some employee takes holidays and the policy is working days, the rest day is not discounted from the counter of holidays

Example: An employee who works in shifts is entitled to 2 days of weekly rest. The employee's time-off policy is based on working days. If this employee takes one week off, only 5 days will be deducted from their total time off.
