Job site pay classes

Managing job site pay classes.

Pay classes are activated for a job site if Certified payroll is enabled in job site settings. Therefore, if you turn on Certified payroll, a Pay classes tab is added in job site details, where you can add new pay classes and manage existing ones.



You may access the Payroll Classes tab if you have the View "Payroll Classes" tab permissions enabled for your role in Administration > Role Permissions > Job Sites. Additionally, you may configure pay classes if you have the Add/edit payroll class permission enabled for your role under the same setting.

Certified payroll is a special payroll report type that is required for federally funded projects. Certified payroll requires contractors to pay their employees according to the prevailing or average wage for each occupation. Pay class is the instrument you can use to define and categorize these rates and apply them to the work accomplished by employees.

When you have a pay class specified, you can then apply it to timelogs when cost coding to include it in the payroll report. You can enable Require pay class cost coding in job site settings to make applying pay classes required.

Proceed to the following section to learn how pay classes are added and what properties they include.
