    Default Anualised Hours...

    My company want us all to change to the above,but i hav'nt got a clue what to do.

    Goes something like this this.
    The total hours you will work will be calculated each year based on total number of working days.You will be advised of the total number of hours at the beginning of each fiscal year.

    The total number of hours for 09/10, will be 1,843 hours this is based on 229 working days including saturdays,but excludes sundays and bank holidays,an average day is 8.05 hours,based on a 40.25 hour contract.

    Dependant on work load,employees may be required to work a minimum 6 hours to a maximum of 10 hours a day.

    Anyway it goes on a bit so not gonna type it all,but i am confused as to sign up for it or not,never had any dealings with this before....so can anyone on here enlighten me.

    Hi m8 what it means in a nutshell is instead of say working 8/4 mon to saturday you could work maybe 8/4 one day 8/2 the next and then 8/6 on the wednesday until you have done your contracted hours for that week.Its like flexi time but to the companys advantage most of the time.This is just a basic outline and i hope it help you?Change usualy is always best for the company and not you.GOOD LOOK

    I think what i do is similar ish.

    I have to do 39 Hours a week..

    I do

    1 X 8 Hour Shift
    1 x 8.5 Hour Shift
    2 x 11 Hour Shifts.

    Every now and again i turn an 8 hour shift into an 11 hour one to cover my average half hour loss a week....

    I love self rostering as it gives the flexibility to take a day off without using leave

    are you sallaried?? if so then it sounds more like flexi time. if you are payed by the hour then you could lose money.

    My dad signed up to this sort of scheme. The company had a policy that if fewer orders were coming in to the factory, they wouldn't require the employees to work as long. Anyway - orders were down for some time, and the employees effectively 'owed' the company a lot of time quite soon after the scheme started. They started working longer days/shifts (even though the work wasn't really there to do) but they still never made up the owed time. The scheme did not last long (1 year I think) and did not really go down well with my dad and his colleagues.

    If you sign up, then find you are doing lots of shorter days, at some point the time will have to be made up to ensure the hours are covered over the year-long period. Conversely though - if there is a lot of work on where you are, you could reach your annualised total quickly - and I suppose any extra is overtime?

    It depends on trades too, if you are in maintenance electrical or mechanical, the annualised hours system means they can over pay you 5 hours a week, accruing hours they can claw back, WHEN EVER THEY WANT.

    Usually over the weekend at the drop of a hat.

    Vehicle : M5

    Trim : Nothing needs adding

    Engine : 5.0 V10

    Year : 07

    Mileage : 37000

    Default

    It means that the company can decide when and if to use you but you are guaranteed your total hours per year it could mean 4 x 10 hour days or any multiples up to 6 days of 6 3/4 hours. The problem is it is as they decide and can be varied weekly so difficult to plan much as you won't know how long you are working each day, a pain if you drop or pick up nippers. Good luck with it mate.
