What is an employee schedule ?

Employee schedules are a way for employers to control their workforce. A schedule may be flexible, semi-flexible or inflexible depending on the needs of the employer. An inflexible schedule is one that only allows for specific hours of work and/or days off; a flexible schedule gives employees some degree of control over their work time and days off; a semi-flexible schedule is a compromise between these two types of schedules. When an employee has to work during hours not allowed by their schedule, they are expected to do so even if it is unpaid overtime.
