Pay Groups Field Value Setup for Core HR

Pay Groups are optional categories used to group employees for payroll purposes and are entered from the Employee Tab of the demographic info page.

If no values are defined in this section, then the Pay Group drop-down menu for an Employee's Demographic Information screen will have a "Not Assigned" option.

If your Employee Data Import includes a field for "Pay Group", then you must define the Pay Groups from the Pay Groups page before importing your data.

Navigating to Pay Groups Field Value Setup
  1. Expand Setup and click Setup Properties from the menu.


  2. Hover over Field Value Setup from the top menu bar to show the available options.
