Salary Grades

Use this wizard to apply the salary grade values, or the salary you specified in the employment history record, for the selected employee. You use this wizard when you create an employment history record and you want to establish the salary based on the grade and scale, or the salary you entered in the Employment History window. You can also use this wizard to establish the new salary after the employee’s terms and conditions change.

This wizard is a shortened version of the Apply Grade and Apply Grade Changes wizards, which you can use subsequently to apply changes to employees’ salaries.

This wizard has two pages.

On page 1, type or select the Effective From date of the salary change. This is the date at which the salary change takes place. Note that this date can affect backdated pay awards if you also use the Payroll application. Click Next.

On page 2, select a reason for the salary change from the list. This is optional. You can set up the reasons displayed in the drop-down list by using Terms and Conditions > Salary Change Reason.

After you choose whether to select a salary change reason and click Finish, you are asked if you want to proceed. Click Yes to confirm you want to continue. A message is displayed that explains the process is running, and then a final message is displayed that tells you the process is complete.

The process looks at all active primary and active employment history records for the selected  employee. If the employee’s salary is based on a salary grade and scale, the employee’s new salary is calculated using the salary grade, scale point and whole time equivalent from the employment history.The selected employee’s salary history is updated and the resulting salary is visible on the employee’s salary history window (HR Record > Employment > Salary History), as well as being available for reporting from the HR record and the employment history files. You can also confirm an employee’s changed salary by viewing the employee’s HR card (summary details). The new salary is also used as the basis for any payroll payments defined as being based on the employee’s salary.
