Increased Functionality: ATS Enhances Its Time and Attendance Shift Differential Premium Pay Codes

Toronto, ON, Canada – May 14, 2020 – Apex Time Solutions -ATS a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) Workforce Management built in the cloud, today announced, some enhancements to its Shift Differential and Premium Pay Code structures within ATSTimeWorkOnDemand. This latest enhancement will help ATS customers achieve better business outcomes through newAPI plugins, state-of-the-art integration and App workflow.

In an effort to show appreciation for employees who are working very long hours during the COVID-19 pandemic, several grocery chains, food manufacturing and other essential companies across the Canadian landscape, have raised wages. This wage increase comes in the form of a $2.00 or $3.00 dollar per hour premium and — in some cases, the increase, is in the form of flat rate that’s paid to the employees at the end of a pay period. Healthcare has also instituted a similar pay increase policy that’s inline with others in its industry.

Now while these companies have said that the wage increase will only last for 2-3 months, they deserve some kudos for this. Our kudos goes out to: Sobey’s, Loblaws, Walmart Canada, Fiesta Farms, Metro, Longo’s and other independent grocery stores.

For ATS customers, in the grocery and healthcare sector who have given their employee this wage increase, the best way to configure this is to create a work rule with a shift differential pay code. Once that’s done, you will then assign the Work Rule, which in turn — will allocate the Premium Pay for the shift in the Assignment Rules tab. All of ATS time clocks are equipped to handle employee shift differential payments.

ATS customers can log into the ATS customer portal account to access the helpful video tutorial and step-by-step guide on how to use the Shift Differential/Premium Pay calculator tool. You can also contact your time and attendance technical support rep by phone: 866.294.2467 or to go to our website.
