A roster is a schedule that shows when employees are expected to attend work, including days and times.

Rosters are used in various workplaces to organise and communicate the working hours and shifts of employees. They help in planning the workforce efficiently, ensuring adequate staffing during operational hours. A roster can vary weekly or be fixed and typically includes start and end times for each shift, as well as which days each employee is working.
