Base Rates and Exceptions (pay rates)

The Base Rate is the default pay rate for every employee in Shift Agent.  The base rate is used unless you provide an exception that would apply in a given situation.

Exceptions are either:

  • Training Rates:  Rates used when the Training flag is applied to a position for a specific employee.  When the training flag is turned off in the position, the training wage is not used in that position.  For example, if you hire a new employee and they will get paid $10.00/hr when they are done training but they are paid $9.00 while they are training, you can set the Training Base Rate as an exception.
  • Position Specific exception:  You can select a position and make a pay rate specific to that position for an employee.
