You can Give Up shifts that have been assigned to you by your management team. For example, you may give up a shift on a Thursday night if you have a conflicting event (such as an exam, a birthday party, a concert, etc…), but were unable to request the time off. Alternatively, you may be able to find another staff member to pick up extra work hours.
Once you give up a shift, it is placed on the Shift Swap board, and other qualified staff members (coworkers) can review the shift swap board to try and pick up extra shifts that staff members do not want.
Please note: You are responsible for all scheduled work shifts unless otherwise notified by TimeForge or your management team. You are responsible for all shifts that have been given up, until notified that another employee has successfully picked up the shift.
