Proactive Compliance

Prevent Violations with Education

When employees are not eligible for shifts due to labor compliance issues, our software offers a clear explanation of every rule violation. Armed with the right context, schedulers and front-line managers can easily justify their scheduling decisions while becoming more knowledgeable about labor compliance issues.


Track and Audit

When rules must be overridden to accommodate unique or urgent needs, Shiftboard keeps a record of the violation, along with the justification for it. Automating deviations tracking reduces the headache of audits and helps foster an accountable and transparent culture within your organization.

A huge benefit of using Shiftboard’s SchedulePro software is being able to identify potential grievance situations before assigning shifts to our employees. One of SchedulePro’s built-in reports can analyze our entire schedule, allowing us to re-arrange the shifts before finalizing and distributing it to our employees. The ability to systematically check for compliance has been the main factor in reducing the number of union grievances.”
