Dedicated System for Managing Outside Employment
EXTRA DUTY is a user-friendly, outside employment management system that will assist scheduling administrators when managing, scheduling, and billing extra duty side jobs. It was developed in response to the specific need for systemizing the process and relationship between law enforcement and private vendors who have the need for a public safety presence.
The extra duty assignments of law enforcement personnel raise many challenges, including fairness, coordination with the primary police schedule, and administrative costs; as well as compliance with workers compensation and liability policies. Effective monitoring and oversight is essential to ensure that the outside employment program is an example of best business practices, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
By using EXTRA DUTY, vendors can sign in to the online system to enter secondary jobs and the skill sets related to them, as well as hourly pay rate information. The rules-based engine takes that information and searches for personnel possessing the skill sets, job availability, and seniority that best match the jobs. Extra duty coordinators manage the vendor jobs and post them online for officers.
These employees will have the opportunity to view and put in their requests for one or more extra duty openings. The system can be customized to immediately award jobs fairly based on last time worked, overtime hours, first-come first-serve, or seniority. Automated alerts or emails will be sent to the employees when a job has been awarded.
Finally, the extra duty coordinator can easily create invoices for the work, administrative fees and equipment fees and send them directly to the contractor via email. All of this directly interfaces with the normal payroll process. The outside vendor or business has the power to view the information, accept or decline, receive an invoice and pay – all online!
Whether the security presence is needed for parades, traffic control, road construction, sporting events, or bank/school/citizen/commercial security, EXTRA DUTY effortlessly handles the assignment and tracking of billable and non-billable jobs. Workforce analytics and reporting capabilities empower contractors and vendors to work together in a more efficient way.
