The nightclub is aimed at young people at the ages 20 - 25. The club opens from Wednesdays to Sundays between the times 9pm to 5am. The club's capacity is big enough to hold 500 people and when full requires 8 staff behind the bar. Paul divides shifts into 4hr blocks, some staff work for the full eight hrs.

Specification * The rota must be clear and should be easy to make alterations if needed. * It must be easy to reproduce a payslip if any of the staff happen to lose their copy of the payslip * The new system must calculate pay easily and produce a pay slip for staff including: pay rate, hours worked/shifts each night, deductions for tax (10%) and National Insurance (5%) and a final amount paid. * The system needs to produce a bar chart showing how much each employee has earned during the week. ...read more.
