Compensation Overview for Core HR

The Compensation menu within HRIS gives administrators the ability to create compensation records that include Pay Rates and Payment Transactions.

Pay Rates

The Payroll tab allows the administrator to track base pay compensation for the employee. The Pay Rates page breaks down the employee's compensation annually, by pay period, and hourly. It also displays Hours Worked, Over Time Rates, and Notes. The Pay Rates page also allows you to track both current and historical compensation records. The most current record will have a blank end date. The rest of the historical records should have a corresponding end date in order to run accurate compensation reports as well as allow compensation based benefits to calculate correctly.
