24/7 Shipping watch


FLEET management staff live under the constant threat of work and travel at short notice, often at weekends. When the rest of us are tucked up in bed reading the Sunday papers, they’re often to be found in a port, on a ship, in short …not at home.

Should they just accept it? That’s the way it is…? Or should they / do they get time off in lieu? Extra pay for extra time worked or some other kind of allowance?

The members of the Maritime HR Forum are conducting research into common practice in the shipping industry. If you’re an employer and you’d like to find out what others do, get in touch and let us know how your company deals with this thorny issue.
