You can also set base wages for positions, but adding an individual position wage to an employee's profile allows you to override the base wage for that position. This means you can give an employee a raise or account for a more senior member of your staff without affecting the base position wage.

To add an individual position wage for an employee, go to the Employees tab and click their name in the list.

Next, click the Wages tab. If they are paid hourly, you will see a list of all positions they are assigned to and will be able to add a specific wage for each one. 

If an employee is salaried, it is not possible to set individual wages for different positions. A salaried employee will always have labor costs calculated according to their annual wage - no matter which position they might be scheduled for.

If they should earn the standard wage for a position, you can leave the base wage in place. Click the options button (3 dots) next to a position if you would like to edit, add, or delete a rate.

  • Adding a rate allows you to account for wage history, so if an employee started at the company with the base wage, you will be able to see that data. For example, Hannah started in the Host position at the base wage.

But as of Aug 15, she was given a raise.

  • Editing wages will not keep history for wage changes. It is possible to set a different effective date, but the rate that was set previous to this change will be lost.

  • Deleting wages removes all data - past, present and future.

Remember to Save your changes when done.
