Shift Code File Maintenance

Shift Code File Maintenance

Application Overview

 

The Shift Code File Maintenance application allows the user to create and maintain codes for calculating pay differentials between shifts.

 

If an hourly employee is flagged for shift differential distributions in the Employee File, the user will have the option of entering a shift code on the distribution screens of the Time Transaction Processing and Manual Transaction Processing applications.  If a code is entered, the hours worked will be multiplied by the rates entered in this application for that code to calculate the shift differential.  The results will be recorded in the wage account also entered in this application.

 

After checks have been printed and transactions are posted, the shift differentials may be printed on the Shift History Report located in the Payroll History Reports application.
