Transferring to a Different Labor Level or Work Rule this section is only applicable to the Royal ships.
If you work in a different department, should receive incentive pay, are working a concurrent job, are working call back, or have a combination of these events, then you need to record that information in the Time Stamp screen in Kronos at the time of the transfer. The following illustration highlights the Transfers drop-down list:

Kronos allows two types of transfers: Labor Level and Work Rule. It is possible to have a combination of the two types of transfers. Use the Search option to find and select a labor level and work rule. Recently selected labor levels and work rules automatically appear in the Transfers drop- down list.

Caution
If you transfer to another pay code in the middle of a shift, do not time stamp out and then perform the transfer. Instead, simply perform the transfer.
