uPaged shifts are casual shifts.


So if your facility employs uPaged practitioner, when a uPaged practitioner is accepted and booked into a shift for the first time:


  1. You will receive an email confirmation of the shift booking and a practitioner profile summary attached
  2. Your HR department would receive an email notification to onboard the practitioner and send a casual contract to them to sign.


This means that your facility employs the practitioner, pays the practitioner by your payroll system, and covers their insurance.


If your facility opts to use uPaged's payroll managed solution instead to employ the practitioner and manage their payroll and insurance:


  1. You will receive an email confirmation of the shift booking and a practitioner profile summary attached
  2. The company will receive an email notification to onboard the practitioner and send a casual contract to them to sign.


The practitioner must be booked in with sufficient time to allow onboarding to be completed prior to the shift start time.


Please ensure you thoroughly review your chosen practitioner's profile prior to deciding to book them in for the shift. To do this, simply select their name.
