Add employee compensation

Modified on Tue, 09 Aug 2022 at 02:40 PM

When you are creating a new employee manually, you will also have to fill out his or her compensation information. The same situation could happen if you have created an employee and need to modify their information. For that, go to People > Directory > Employee profile > Compensation to fill out the information related to:

  • Employment
  • Salary
  • Variable pay
