The global Class Rate Increase option enables the system to assign a global increase to all classes or specific classes at the same time.
▪Select the Payroll Tools menu.
▪Select Class Rate Increase.
The Class Rate Increase screen will appear:
The Class Rate Increase menu is used if your employees are assigned to Classes and the rates are global for the employees in the classes.
The two key sections of the Class Rate Increase screen are:
1.The Effective Date
All rates in the StaffScheduleCare system are date driven. The date you select here will determine when the increase becomes effective.
What field(s) will you be updating, All rates or a particular rate value (1-10), what Function will you be performing, Add, Subtract, Multiple, etc., and what rate value will you be assigning to your action.
3.Be sure to use the Filter if you are increasing a specific class or classes. If you do not apply a filter, the system will apply the increase to ALL classes.
