Configuration of Wage Types

Created by Carolina Mosing, Modified on Thu, 18 Apr 2024 at 12:46 PM by Carolina Mosing

A salary often consists of more than one salary component. It can consist of a daily rate, a subsequent rate and expenses for kilometers driven or lunch deductions. Staffcloud therefore distinguishes between wage types and wage profiles. A wage profile can contain one or more wage types. 

Wage types can be configured under Configuration -> Wages -> Wage types:

To create a new Wage Type, click "New Wage Type":

To edit an existing wage type, click on the wage type - the window with the configuration opens: 

Please note: wage types that have already been used can only be edited slightly (e.g. the name or ID can be changed, but not the value).

Explanation of the values to be entered:

Staffcloud Field
IDThe ID can be filled with the identification of the wage programm
Base Value Type

predefined (per wage type) = is fixed in all assignments

adjustable (per assignment)

ControllableThe wage type can be set active or inactive, this is usable for wage types that are not paid in every assignment, e.g. expences
ActivatedThis Option is to set a salary type as active or inactive per default.
Proposabledecides whether the employee can select this wage type or even enter his or her expenses as an amount

h / KM - The Unit the Salary is rated with. This can be entered freely
Editable FactorThe calculated amount can be edited 
Dynamic ValueThe Value is linked to a attribute of an employee, a customer or an event.
Conditioning AttributeSelect the value the salary is linked to

Conditional wage types 

wages are often paid according to seniority or age. Using the conditional wage types, the wage can be graded using an attribute. 

Special cases

If somebody is sick or does not appear, we recommend that you create a 'free wage type'. This can be adjusted and edited manually using the option ' Calculated amount can be edited manually'. This wage type is created in a separate wage profile (Sick/No Show). 

If employees are sick or do not show off, this wage profile can be selected and filled in the work data.
