A common stipulation in modern awards and enterprise agreements is the minimum number of hours an employee can be asked to work on a day.

Using the example above, the employee either works three hours, or works less than three hours but is paid for the full three hours.

If you're using a Tanda Managed Award Template, this will likely be pre-configured for you. If you need to build this rule into your account, head to Compliance > Custom rules > + New Rule.

Under Conditions, you'll see the option 'Minimum Shift Length'. Tick this condition and specify the minimum hours required.

After creating this rule, eligible staff will receive payment for 3 hours on shifts that are less than 3 hours. For example, the employee below worked 3:30-5:30pm (two hours) and this is reflect on the start and finish times. However, they are paid as if they had worked 3:30pm-6:30pm (three hours).
