DukeShift allows managers to advertise available shifts for their departments. During our COVID-19 response, we are also using DukeShift to fill additional staffing needs.
If you are already using DukeShift, continue using it as you have been. However, note that the shifts for the COVID19 departments will not appear in the API Schedule.
As part of our COVID-19 response, we have activated access to DukeShift for all bi-weekly staff and for a subset of the monthly staff, so that they can select COVID-related shifts. Click here for information about requesting COVID-19 shifts.
My DukeShift is considered a regular work shift. If I am tardy or call out, the occurrences will be treated in accordance of the Availability for Work policy. A DukeShift is an agreement between myself and the department where I picked up the shift – any concerns, call outs, schedule changes, etc. should be directed to the department where I picked up the shift.
I will adhere to the Staffing policy. I will not schedule myself for:
more than 12 hours in a row
more than four, 12 hour shifts in a row
more than seven, 8 hour shifts in a row
at least 8 hours between shifts
no more than 60 hours in a 7 day period
Note: Managers may remove an employee’s privilege to use DukeShift. Possible reasons include but are not limited to:
Failure to adhere to DukeShift policies and procedures
Allowing DukeShift awarded work shifts to interfere with my staffing obligations on my home unit
