Setting up employee types

Employee types are a way of classifying users in Replicon. They are often used to reflect statuses that may have legal or payroll implications – such as contract versus permanent workers, or full-time versus part-time workers.

Replicon offers six default employee types – Administrator, Consultant, Contractor, Full-time Hourly, Full-time Salaried, Part-time Hourly, and Part-time Salaried. You can add to, edit, or delete these default types to meet the needs of your organization.

Each Replicon user must be assigned an employee type in their user profile.

Adding an employee type

To add a new employee type:

  1. Go to Administration > Employees and Organization > Employee Types.
  2. Click Add Employee Type.
  3. Give the new type a name and click Save.

If you’d like to save additional information related to your employee types, you can create employee type custom fields that will display on the Employee Types Add/Edit page.


What are employee types used for?

Employee types are a way of classifying users. You can use them in Replicon to filter user data on certain pages and reports, such as on timesheet and payroll list pages. You can also create a timesheet period for each employee type that can be assigned to all users of that type.

Can I associate an employee type with a cost or billing rate?

No, these values aren’t linked. But, if you want to easily assign all employees of a certain type the same rate, you can filter your user list by that employee type, and mass edit all the filtered users to give them the same rate.
