If you're unable to work one of your shifts, you can trade the shift (swap shifts) with one of your coworkers.

Things to know before you begin:

  1. Your manager has the option to disable the shift trade for your workplace.
  2. Manager approval is required for shift trade which may delay how quickly a shift is offered to your coworkers.
  3. When you create a trade, the shift is still your responsibility until it is picked up by one of your coworkers.
  4. You will receive a notification via Email and SMS.
