Salary models are a collection of salary rules, which together will create the salary specification of a given employee. It is possible to have an unlimited number of salary models.

There should be a model for each separate way of calculating salary in your company and most companies typically have one or two salary models. The salary models are managed under the models item of the salary menu.

Creating and editing a salary model

The salary model consist of the following fields:

  • Model title: This is the title of the model, so you can identify and locate it.
  • Hour source: If the salary model is to count work hours, you can select where it get its data from.
    • Planned work: The salary model will examine the production plan.
    • Carried-out work: The salary model will consider hour registrations. Be aware that all hours in a period is considered whether they are approved or not.
    • None: In this case no hours are considered which is only suitable if the salary doesn't depend on hours worked.
  • Use expected work time for daily overtime: If this is checked, the users workweek will be considered instead of the "Daily overtime after" value mentioned below (if a workweek is configured for the user).
  • Daily overtime after: If the number of hours in a day exceeds this number it is considered category 1 overtime.
  • Daily overtime split: If the category 1 overtime exceeds this number of hours, it is considered category 2 overtime. Example: If daily overtime is 8 hours and daily overtime split is 3 hours and the user works for 12 hours, then 8 hours are "normal" time, 3 hours are category 1 overtime and the last hour is category 2 overtime.
  • Weekly overtime: The weekly overtime fields works exactly like the daily overtime fields except that the entire week is considered. The week is always Monday to Sunday in this regard.
  • Evening, night and morning start and end: There are three special periods called evening, night and morning. By entering a timestamp here, one can configure how long each period is.
  • Category filter: When using time registrations or planned work as the hour source, one can create and apply a filter to these hours, to only consider some of them when calculating salary. These filters are selected here and up to 12 filters can be considered.
  • Don't adjust category: If this is checked the hours gathered by the belonging filter, will not be adjusted in regards to the rules mentioned below:
  • Pr. day adjustment: If this is selected the entire day will be rounded as selected. So a day consisting of 7 hours and 13 minutes, will be rounded to 7 hours and 15 minutes if quarterly is selected.
  • Pr. day adjustment: This will subtract the given number of minutes from each day (as long as there is hours on that day).
  • Never calculate norm time on a public holiday: If this is checked norm time on a public holiday is considered zero. Otherwise it is calculated as a normal work day.
