This article contains the following items;
- Opening Rate Sets
- Creating Rate Sets
- Assigning Rate Sets to Employees
- Rate Sets at Payroll
Opening Rate Sets
You can open the Rate Sets screen by clicking the Setup menu item then select the Rate Set option.
This will show you a screen that contains the current listing of available Rate Sets
Creating Rate Sets
To a new Rate Set click the Add Rates button, this will open the settings screen for the Rate Set.
Use the Rate Type dropdown to indicate the interval type that you would like to increment the rate brackets at.
There are 3 options in this list
- Age Based
- Industry Hours
- Years Worked
This feature allows you to indicate the minimum pay rate that the employee should receive based on their current age as detailed on their employee profile.
Click the Add button to create each of the breakdowns
You can then specify the minimum hourly rate that the employee should receive at payroll.
This allows you to automate the increases of wages, based on the number of working hours that they have in the industry.
The amount that the employee is displayed on the employee details screen under the Groups tab.
The industry hours field will accumulate based on the worked time sheets in each payroll.
These brackets are added in the same way as the aged based rates
Years worked operates in a similar manner as the aged based option, however, instead of using the employee's date of birth, the system uses the employee's start date with the business to determine the minimum rate.
The employee's start date is automatically added on the creation of the employee but can be adjusted on the Employee Details Dates tab.
From this use the Add button to create the brackets and enter the years required and the minimum rates required.
You can come back and edit this at any time by using the Options > Edit button.
Assigning Rate Sets to Employees
For the minimum rates to apply for the employee within payroll, you will first need to assign the Rate Set against the employee. To do this open the Employee Details screen and then navigate to the Pay tab.
From here you can set the Rate Set dropdown.
Please Note: ClockOn only recommends using the Aged based rate set setup for employee's being paid on an hourly basis.
Rate Sets at Payroll
Once payroll has been generated and there are rates to be applied for the employees, the Rates button will be enabled.
To update the employee's pay rate, click this button and the following screen will appear with a listing of all the employees that are due for an increase, their current rate, and based on the rate set, what their rate should be.
If you would like to update the rate, then indicate which employees using the checkbox (or use the "Select All" to save time) and then use the Update button
Once this is done, the payroll figures will be re-calculated for the employee with the new rate of pay. If desired you can check the payslip screen to confirm that this has applied as expected.
