What is a work pattern?

Work Pattern (definition)

An employee Work Pattern in payroll software is built to keep track of which days someone usually works. A well-defined Work Pattern can then determine relevant daily pay, annual leave balances and how much leave to deduct when employees take time off.

Use an employee’s regular days or hours to set up a Work Pattern. In PayHero, if your employee has an irregular work pattern, it’s possible to select ‘no regular work’ and PayHero will make any relevant calculations based on their timesheets.

PayHero also has a Company Work Pattern setting that sets the rules for the Employee Work Pattern. This helps to determine the Review Period and Otherwise Working Day Minimum.
