Pay rates are used to calculate employee pay. Each pay rate is associated with an effective date, so the correct rate is used in calculations and in reports. This also allows you to set up new rates in advance.
You can review all pay rates in your system from the Pay Rates page.
You can also assign employees different pay rates, dependant on what activity they perform. Refer to Setting up activity-based pay rates for more information.
To assign a user a single pay rate:
You can use the Administration > Pay Codes and Policies > Pay Rates page to review all rates from a single location. This page includes filters, allowing you to review rates by department and group, if desired.
You can also use this page to easily access the Payroll tab of user profiles, where you can update their rates as outlined above. Simply click the name of the user on this page, and their Payroll page will display.
