Assign Allowances to Craft Classes

You can assign payroll allowances to a craft class using the Allowance Earnings tab in PR Craft Classes.

Allowances enable you to pay an employee additional earnings based on a set time period. You will add allowances to PR Craft Classes to generate allowance amounts for a specific craft class.

To assign allowances to a craft class:

  1. In PR Craft Classes, select the craft/class to which the allowance applies.
  2. Click the Allowance Earnings tab.
  3. In the Allowance field, enter the allowance name or press F4 to select from a list of valid craft/class allowances (i.e. allowances with a rule set location of Craft Class in PR Allowances).
  4. In the Earn Code field, enter the earnings code for the allowance or press F4 to select from a list of valid allowance earnings codes (i.e. earnings codes with a method of Allowance in PR Earnings Codes).

    It is suggested that you enter an earnings code that is specific to the allowance. See the F1 help for more information.

  5. In the Rule Set field, enter the rule set to use for determining how the allowance will be calculated. Press F4 for a list of valid rule sets.
  6. In the Shift Rate Override field, enter the override pay rate to use for this allowance or leave blank to use the straight time rate for the shift worked by the employee.

    The system will use this shift's rate regardless of the shift worked for the employee. If the employee works under multiple classes, shifts, and/or templates, the highest straight time rate for the shift applies. However, a higher rate for the employee in PR Employees (Hourly Rate field) will override any/all shift rates.

  7. Save the record.
