Employment Type

Introduction

As a normal practice employees are hired under specific employment terms, generally the employment type and pay classification (or pay class).

These two elements go into determining the rate of pay and employee entitlements.

Introduction

  • Employment type refers to Full Time / Part Time / Casual, etc.
  • Pay Class refers to the pay level and rate of pay.

By creating different employee types a variety of payroll, loading, tax and leave accrual scenarios can be developed allowing you to define the appropriate situation for each type of employee.

The general definition of an employment type begins with the following data elements (images following).

You may define as many or as few employment types as you require to encapsulate your business.

  • Overtime Rule : Allows you to select an overtime rule for the system to follow for this employee type.
  • FTE: Fulltime Equivalent is used in reporting to compare full time, part time casual and enterprise employees
  • Short / Long Week: Short and Long Weeks are used by the optimised scheduler to optimise minimum and maximum shifts in a week. If the same hours are worked every week just enter the Short Week values

Scheduling Optimiser Parameters

This section is very specific to the workings of the Scheduling Optimiser module.

    Short and Long Weeks are used by the optimised scheduler to optimise minimum and maximum shifts in a week. If the same hours are worked every week just enter the Short Week values

    Rotating Shift Mix:

  • Employees working permanent night shift are paid a higher loading than employees working rotating night shift.
  • Permanent night shift is based on the percentage of your shifts worked on night shift. In the example an employee who worked more than 33% of their shifts on nights would be classed by the system as being on permanent night shift.
  • The optimised scheduler minimises costs by keeping night shifts below this threshold.
