Use this tab to create and maintain the details for the salary grade.
Many organizations use a harmonized grade and scale, with subgrades, for the job roles in the organization. In this case, you set up a salary grade definition for the harmonized scale and a salary grade definition for each of the subgrades. In the salary grade definition for each subgrade, you link the definition to the harmonized scale by selecting the harmonized scale salary grade definition in the Use Another Scale field. In the subgrade definition, you also use the Minimum Salary Point and Maximum Salary Point fields to set the minimum and maximum salary points that are on the harmonized scale.
Type a unique code for the salary grade.
Type a description for the salary grade.
Select this check box to indicate that the scale points and associated scale values are recorded in the selected salary scale. Clear this check box in salary subgrade definitions, when the definition refers to another scale, typically a harmonized scale. For example, if there is a harmonized scale for the whole organization, with, for example, scale points 1 – 70, and one salary subgrade uses scale points 30 – 40 on that scale, you should clear this check box in that salary subgrade definition.
Optional, the minimum salary for the salary grade.
Optional, the maximum salary for the salary grade.
Select a salary grade from this drop-down list when the selected salary grade definition refers to another salary grade. When an organization uses a harmonized salary grade, with salary subgrades, each salary subgrade requires a salary grade definition and those salary grade definitions must be linked to the salary grade definition for the harmonized scale. In this case, in each salary subgrade definition, you select the harmonized salary grade definition in this field.
Type the minimum scale point. When you define a salary subgrade definition that refers to a harmonized scale, use this field to define the minimum scale point on the harmonized scale.
Type the maximum scale point. When you define a salary subgrade definition that refers to a harmonized scale, use this field to define the maximum scale point on the harmonized scale.
Optional, select the payment frequency.
You can set up the payment frequencies displayed in the drop-down list by using Personnel > Terms and Conditions > Payment Frequency.
Optional, select the grade analysis heading from the drop-down list.
You might use group analysis headings in your own reports, to group salary grades under a particular heading, such as Academic.
You can set up the grade analysis headings displayed in the drop-down list by using Personnel > Terms and Conditions > Grade Analysis Heading.
Select a salary review date from the drop-down list. Salary review dates are used to establish salary values for employees whose salaries are based on salary grades and scales.
The salary is based on the settings in the employment history record and the salary review date you specify in this field.
If you set a salary review date in the Use the Salary Review Date field on the Employment tab of the HR Application Features window, the setting you make in this field takes precedence.
You can set up the salary review dates displayed in the drop-down list by using Personnel > Terms and Conditions > Salary Review Date.
