The default pay rate for an employee is the Normal rate set up on the employee’s masterfile. To override this default, select either ‘Award’ or ‘Other’ rate. The Award rate is also kept on the employee’s masterfile but the Other rate enables an hourly rate to be entered for the current line being processed.
To make a permanent change:
– Normal and Award Rate permanent changes are made on the employee’s masterfile. Any pays already checked will not reflect this new rate unless unchecked and rechecked.
– Groups. Where an employee belongs to a group, a permanent change made to the normal or award rate on the Group will adjust the rate of pay on all employees belonging to that group unless an employee has their own rate specified. Any pays that have already been checked will not reflect this new rate unless unchecked and rechecked.
Note: If the rate of pay is likely to change often for an employee, an Other Rate line can be set up on that employee’s Standard Pay and modified each pay.
