Pay rate multipliers are used with the Labor hours screen. They give a conversion between a single character code and a factor to be applied to the base pay rate.
Select Pay Rate Multipliers from the Select, Payroll menu. The screen appears as shown:
The suggested entries are:
Pay Type Description Multiplier
r Regular 1
o Overtime 1.5
d Double 2
t Triple 3
The entry for regular time, r, is required. The payroll calculation process uses this value to determine what is regular hours verses overtime pay. Other entries are optional and may be changed, added or dropped to suit personal taste. Enter one record for each pay type.
