This article compiles Frequently Asked Questions and answers for WFM regarding managing Rotas and Schedules in terms of COVID-19 legislation and guidance. A contents page which includes the full series of FAQs from the Webinar on the 31.3.2020, and the Webinar video, is linked at the bottom of this article.
Q - Do you recommend entering hours into the Rota for those Sites which have been closed, but still have a handful of employees still on Site who are not Furloughed? Is there anything we need to change in Rota payments?
If there are employees in a Site which is not closed, then their hours will need to be scheduled and submitted on the Rotas as normal. We do have some information about this on a previous FAQ here - WFM - Temporary Closures FAQs
Q - Will anything show in the Rota for Furloughed employees?
No, nothing will currently show in the Rotas or Schedules for an employee who is Furloughed.
Q - If all staff are Furloughed, can Rotas be closed in advance?
Rotas can be closed and submitted in advance, but only once the current week has started. More information on Schedules can be found in this article - WFM - Temporary Closures FAQs
