How do I apply for a shift?
It is very easy to apply for a shift. Just check out the video below! Once you have applied the employer can see this and accept you for the shift. Be aware that multiple people might have applied, so it will not always be your shift!
What happens in case of a no show?
In case of a no show, which means not showing up for a shift you applied at all, you will receive a written warning from L1NDA. You will have 24 hours to reply with a valid reason. If this reason is deemed appropriate, you will receive a second change.
However, if you decide to not contact L1NDA at all or your reason is not sufficient, you will be blocked and banned from the platform.
Once you do not show up it damages the name and validity of L1NDA Connect as a platform. With both us and the employer counting on you, this rule is enforced strictly!
What happens when you're too late for work?
We all know that something can happen which would make you slightly late for work. However, if you are you will need to contact the employer and L1NDA Connect. This is to inform and ensure no negative situations will occur. Of course, the reason should be valid! The validity of the reason is again determined by L1NDA Connect.
If you are late multiple times, an official warning is given and could potentially lead to being banned from the platform. More info on this here.
What do I do when I'm sick?
In the event of illness, you must report sick before 9:00 am. If your shift starts earlier than 9:00 am, you must report sick before the start of the shift. To report sick you must do the following:
- Call the company where you were going to work (you will find the telephone number in the confirmation email). In case of no reply, you send an e-mail,
- Fill out this form,
- L1NDA will contact you by phone to confirm your illness report.
It is possible to cancel your shift. If you do so more than 48 hours in advance, there will be no consequences. However, if you want to cancel a shift within 48 hours before it starts, it will be seen as a no-show if no legitimate reason is given.
You are also required to inform the business and L1NDA of your cancelation and the reason. Contact information can be found in the shift agreement.
Do you still want to cancel your shift?
- Go to your upcoming shifts,
- Open the shift you want to cancel,
- Scroll down and click on the button 'Cancel this shift',
- Give us your legit reason why you want to cancel the shift,

I am not getting hired for many shifts. How can I increase my chances?

A complete, professional, and fun profile helps with your chances! More info on how to get hired quickly here.

The hourly wage, shown in each job posting, is decided by each business and depends on the type of position and expected experience. Each vacancy shows what you will earn. Learn more here.
