    Question Kelly Day formula

    Hello, does anyone out there know of a formula that govts use to calculate the additional manpower that is required when adding Kelly days to the work schedule?

    Don't really know what you mean here as far as a formula goes. We have Kelly days one every 18 working days. There are numbers assigned 1-18 for everyone on the shift and each day there are a few people off due to Kelley days. For us, Kelley days don't affect the minumum staffing, it is the vacations and sick time that creates OT. Even if the vacations are filled and there are a couple sicky's, the Kelley days still don't affect minimum staffing and our Battalions can get by without calling in OT.

    When you calculate for staffing in your budget, you should be counting the number of possible people you will have off at any given time based on KDO's and A/L. The Kelly day is mandated by law so your people do not go over the maximum hours of work in a set period and not get compensated with OT for it.

    Example: 4 to maintain 2. Any one person on some type of leave and a Kelly day. 8 to maintian 4 and so on.

    We have the 24/48 at work with a Kelly after the 7th shift. And every six months or so we get a double Kelly.

    Just out of morbid curiosity, how many hours per week does that schedule work out to on average?

    (We use a straight 24 on/3 days off schedule averaging 42 hours per week.)

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    We are on a fortyeight hour work week. We also have day units that work a twelve hour day four days a week with a rotating Kelly
