Add multiple pay rates for hourly employees

Once you have set up an hourly employee with their first primary pay rate, you can add as many additional pay rates as you'd like.

  1. Click the People tab.
  2. Click your employee’s name.
  3. Navigate to the Job & Pay tab.
  4. In the Compensation section, click Add Earning Type or Pay Rate.
  5. Select the earning type or additional pay rate.
  6. Next to Job Class Code, select the appropriate risk class code.
  7. Enter the pay rate.
  8. Next to Default Hours per Pay Period, enter a default amount if applicable.
  9. Click Save.
  10. The first pay rate will now be titled Primary Position.
    • Job Titles can be updated by clicking Edit next to the pay rate.

Note: If you change an hourly employee to a salaried employee it will remove all additional pay rates from your employee.
