Submitting timesheets

Submitting timesheets


To ensure timely payments for casual work, it is recommended that you submit timesheets, via myJobshop, on a weekly basis. Failure to do so may result in late payments and tax and NI implications.

Your claims for work will be processed through the myJobshop system by submitting weekly timesheets.

Your timesheets will be available in the myJobshop portal (located in the Timesheet section under Incomplete/Not Submitted) for each role and for each week that you have worked.

The week runs from Monday to Sunday, therefore, you can submit your timesheet once you have finished working for that week, ensuring the dates and hours are correct. Please Note: Your timesheet will be rejected if the information submitted is incorrect.
