Hello, I am a nursing home administrator & am going to implement this at our facility. was wondering if you could share policy for it or let me know where I could get copy of one so don't have to reinvent the wheel. thanks.
Are you going to implement 12-hour weekend shifts? Or are you going to go with the 16-hour weekend double shifts?
For 16-hour weekend doubles, my former workplace had the weekend staff working from 6:00am to 10:00pm every Saturday and Sunday. They were paid for 40 hours even though they worked 32 hours. The additional 8 hours per week was paid as an 'en bloc' bonus as long as the staff member was not more than 30 minutes late on any one day. If a weekend worker was more than 30 minutes late, they lost that 8-hour 'en bloc' bonus.
For 12-hour weekend shifts, my former workplace offered days (6:00am to 6:30pm) and nights (6:00pm to 6:30am) every Saturday and Sunday. Weekend employees worked 24 hours over the weekend and got paid for 32 hours. Those additional 8 hours per weekend were paid as an 'en bloc' bonus, and again, workers lost the 8 hours if they arrived more than 30 minutes late to one of their shifts.
