How to Assign Different Rates For Different Positions

From your

Applies to , ,

Overview

If an employee is paid differently based upon the position they are working, set up their hourly rate settings to make the position-based rate assignments automatic.

Before you begin

If you haven’t already done so, add positions and tag your employees with positions.

Assign rates to an employee based on position

  1. Hover over Workplace, then select Employees Employees.

  2. Click the name of the employee.
  3. Click the Hourly Rates tab.
  4. In Base Hourly Rate, enter base hourly rate that the employee receives regardless of position.
  5. For each position, enter a value to increase or decrease the hourly rate that the employee receives for that position.
    • To pay the employee more than the base hourly rate, enter a positive number.
    • To pay the employee less than the base hourly rate, enter a negative number, such as -2.
  6. Click Save Employee.

How different rates for different positions can be used

Different positions can be used to manage the unique rates an employee earns for each of their position assignments. You can also use different positions to set up different pay on particular days by creating extra positions with that increased rate.

Assign Different Rates Based on the Shift

  1. Hover over Workplace, then select Position Positions.

  2. Click Add Position to create a new position with an increased rate. 
  3. Hover over Workplace, then select Employees Employees.

  4. Click the name of an employee to assign to this new position. 
  5. Click on the Hourly Rates tab. 
  6. For the new position, enter a value to increase or decrease the hourly rate that the employee receives for that position.
  7. Click Save Employee. 
  8. Finally, assign the new position to the employee’s shift(s) to reflect the adjustment in pay for that shift.
