You can also set wages for positions, but adding a wage to an employee's profile allows you to override the base wage for a position. This means you can give an employee a raise or account for a more senior member of your staff without affecting the base rate of pay.
To add a pay rate for an employee, go to the Employees tab and click their name in the list.
Next, click the Wages tab. Here you can designate whether the employee is paid hourly or is paid a salary.
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 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 rate.
But as of Aug 15, she was given a raise.
- Editing a wage rate 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 a wage removes all data for that rate - past, present and future.
If you want to add a salary for an employee, you will choose that option in the drop-down menu. Then, you must assign the salary cost to a location and position so it can be reflected in your reports. Click the options button to add a rate.
Fields will appear so you can choose the cost centers for their salary as well as the effective date. You will also enter the annual salary amount, here.
Click Save and your labor cost will reflect the changes.
