Add New Employee Wizard - Step 5

Employee Salary/Cost

You  record salary, benefits and leave details for an employee using Step 5 of the wizard. The information serves as a basis to manage resources for the practice.

The salary ranges, benefits and leave are created in the system by the system administrator via Maintenance > System > Employee Benefit Type.

On the Salary/Cost tab:

  1. In the Salary/Benefit table, select the Start Date from the drop-down calendar.

  2. Select the End Date from the drop-down calendar.

  3. Select the Benefit Type from the drop-down list.

  4. Enter any Details to be recorded with the benefit. There is a 50-character limit.

  5. Enter the Annual Salary amount. This figure is used in the calculation of the employee’s cost rate.

  6. Select the check box to Include the salary amount in the employee's cost rate calculation.

  7. If necessary, overwrite the Cost/Hr figure. It is the cost per hour for the employee, calculated from the figures entered in the Salary/Benefit area and the assigned number of working hours.

  8. In the Leave table, select the Start Date from the drop-down calendar.

  9. Select the End Date from the drop-down calendar.

  10. Enter the number of days in the leave.

  11. Select the type of leave from the drop-down list.

  12. Click Finish to exit the wizard and go to the Employee Details page. You can also click Back before clicking Finish to modify any information from prior tabs.
