Rate Codes Field Value Setup for Core HR

Rate Codes allow for the configuration of multiple Compensation Rate Codes in the system. Rate Codes can then be applied to Compensation Rates for the purpose of recording compensation against a given Code. Rate Codes are reportable using the Data Export Module. 

If Rate Codes have not been configured, then only a default value of 'Base Rate' will be displayed in the drop-down when entering a compensation or compensation transaction. Multiple Rate Codes can be set as default or as the 'Base Rate'.

Compensation based benefits will only read one Base Rate at a time and will go in order of first added.
i.e. if you have multiple compensation rates all starting as of the same date and all listed as a Base Rate, the compensation based benefit will read the very first-rate entered into the system as a Base Rate.
