Earnings Rules

Earnings rules are a feature in where you can create rules that will apply to staff members and give them a different pay rate, depending on when or how they work.

Earnings rules can be found via Compliance > Custom Earnings Rules:

To create a new Earnings rule, click on the top right green button:

Enter a name of the rule, choose who it will apply to and select which hours will the rule apply to:

Next, choose your condition. Whether you want someone to be paid a different rate when working in a specific team, working specific hours, specific day, shifts, and so on, you can select your condition below:

Higher pay rate when working specific times in the day

Choose Specific times and then add the hours of the rule. If you want someone to be paid a different rate in the night shifts, enter the times (8PM-6AM, for example):

Different pay rate when working in specific teams/roles

If you have someone working in a team ''Kitchen'', but they also work in a team ''Front of the house'', and have different pay rates in each team, select Specific shifts and select the team/s. You can also select the tags if you've tagged your staff (apprentice, junior worker, senior worker, etc.):

Different pay rate when working on specific holidays or leave types

Does the staff get paid more when working on certain holidays or when they take a specific type of leave? Select For a specific leave type and select the one you need:

Each earnings rule that is created and applied to your staff members will show up on their timesheets when those specific shifts are recorded:


After you've selected your conditions, go to the outcomes and add a rate or a multiplier:

Last step is to connect your rule with your payroll system. It's optional to give it an export name, but the Labor Law Template should always be ''Custom Payroll Setup'':

*Keep in mind, the base hourly rate on the timesheet will always be displayed as their usual pay rate, but the cost will be accurate to the different pay rate from the earnings rule:
