Many businesses have employment agreements or industry awards that require employees to be given unpaid breaks based on shift length. For instance, many awards require that if employees work a shift longer than 5 hours, they must take a 30-minute unpaid break. Rather than manually calculating and communicating unpaid break allowances for staff each time you roster, with ClubsHR, you can set these rules on your account once and let ClubsHR handle the rest.


1. Click the Settings tab, then select Roster from the dropdown menu.

2. Select the unpaid breaks tab

3. For each time range, select the unpaid break allowance you want to set. For instance, if you want 30 min unpaid breaks to be set for shifts of more than 5 hours, select the 30 min option in the 5-6 hour section.

Start from the smallest shift length you need to update and work your way to the longest shift. You'll notice ClubsHR auto-fills the longer shifts. This allows you to complete this whole section with only a few changes.

4. Once you are happy with the unpaid break rules you have set on your account, click the Save button on the bottom right of the screen.

Once complete, you will notice that shifts meeting your customised criteria will include unpaid breaks when rostering.
