Custom Pay Rates for Employees in Core HR

The Custom Pay Rates tab allows for the creation of a custom override rate for an employee. These rates apply when an employee records time for a specific project, cost center, or combination of project and cost centers.

Before creating a custom rate scenario, the rates intended to apply as a result of the custom configuration need to be created on the Pay Rates tab within Settings.

Projects and Cost Centers must be set up from the related field setup menus.
