Are you a roster manager with staff who have a preference to either work or not work specific days and/or times each week on an ongoing basis for a defined period? Please refer to
Managing Temporary Individual Roster Arrangements for the PDF version.
Make a note of staff making roster requests for the same times each roster or staff who specifically request to work or not to work set days.
Meet with the staff member to clarify their situation and confirm their needs.
Assess whether a TIRA could meet the staff member's identified need.
If a TIRA could be suitable, inform the staff member how TIRAs work, the factors to be considered, the process to apply and the relevant timeframes.
Check your local Rostering Best Practice Guidelines to determine the appropriate delegations for approval.
If recommended, complete the relevant documentation, stating a start and end date, and forward to Secondary Approver for review.
Notify the staff member of the outcome of their request as soon as possible.
If approved, update the staff member's availability in the roster from the commencement date. Diarise to review the TIRA prior to the end date.
