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.
