Employee Compensation - View/Create/Edit

Use the Employee Compensation screen to view salary history, associated organizational units (OUs), and easily crate, edit, and delete new salary records. Employee Compensation includes added real time calculations for annual equivalency, so administrators can easily adjust custom annual equivalencies for employees with unique pay schedules that sit outside the default set in Wage Types. When creating a new employee compensation record, information that is already known about the employee, such as their Currency, Wage Type, and Annual Equivalency, is retained to save time when creating a new salary amount.

To access the Employee Compensation page, go to Admin > Tools > Compensation Management > Employee salaries. Select the edit icon for a user.

Compensation Table

If the rate is Hourly, then the table displays the hourly rate and the annual rate based on the number of labor hours that is specified.
