We use Humanity - Shiftplanning/wiki/spaces/moodytech/pages/26297149to coordinate shifts.

Keep your contact information (email / phone number) up-to-date.

For scheduling questions, check the posted schedule.  The Humanity schedule is the official schedule.  If you trade a shift and it is not on the schedule WE DON'T SEE IT.  IT IS NOT A SCHEDULED CHANGE.

    1. Create a shift trade request in Humanity - Shiftplanning. If there is no reply, it is your responsibility to call, text or personally email other student workers to obtain shift coverage. 
    2. Inform your supervisor at least two days in advance after you have tried all of the above and could not find coverage for your scheduled shift time. 
    3. If you still cannot find anyone to cover your shift, we will try to make other arrangements. Otherwise, you are expected to work that shift.
    4. If you agree to fill someone else's shift, you are responsible for covering that shift. 
  • Illness:
    • Please do not come into work if you are not feeling well. Send a shift release request through Humanity portal.
