Set Up Labor Rates in the JB T&M Template Labor Rates Form

Specify how labor is billed for each labor category on the JB T&M Template Labor Rates Form.

Access this form from either the JB Programs folder or by double-clicking a record on the Labor Rates tab in JB T&M Template Setup.

Labor categories must be set up in JB Labor Categories before setting up labor rates. Labor categories group specified classes and crafts together on a billing. Once categories are set up, this form displays all templates and labor categories.
  1. Restrict the labor rate by earn type, factor, and/or shift by checking the Restrict by Earn Type, Restrict by Factor, and/or Restrict by Shift boxes. Leave the checkbox blank to indicate “all.” Depending on the selected checkboxes, the Earn Type, Factor, and/or Shift fields are enabled.
  2. Indicate the earn type, factor, or shift in the Earn Type, Factor, and/or Shift fields, as necessary.

    For example, you can restrict a labor category by a specific earnings type, but include all earning factors and shifts. Any combination of the three restricting options can be used.

  3. Select a rate option from the Rate Option drop-down: C-Actual Costs, F-Earnings Factor, or R-Labor Rate.
    Note: If you select C-Actual Costs, labor is billed using the actual costs posted to JC. If you select R-Labor Rate, labor is billed using the rate specified for the labor category. If you select F-Earning Factor, labor is billed using the earnings factor posted to JC multiplied by the labor category’s rate.
  4. Enter the new rate in the New Rate field.
Note: You can update old rates for all entries in the grid by selectingFile > Move New Rates to Old.When this option is selected, the Old Rate field is automatically updated with the values in the New Rate fields. The New Rate fields do not change and must be manually updated.

The system will apply the new rate based on the date indicated in the New Labor Rate Effective Date field. To update this date, use the JB TM Template Setup form.
