Use this form to maintain position versions. A position version is a type of date effective record. Date effective records contain changes to a record, in this case a position record, that are effective on a specific date and time. For more information, see Maintain records.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

Each tab displays a grid of date effective records. When you modify a record on each tab, you must also enter effective and expiration dates that are specific to that record. The effective and expiration dates on one tab do not update the dates on another tab in this form.

Earnings

  • Generate salary

  • Generate earnings from schedule

  • Default earning code

  • Schedule

The fields in this group interact in various ways to determine how earnings are generated and shown on earnings statements. Earnings can be generated from the position salary, from the schedule associated with the position, or from a combination of both.

  • If neither Generate salary nor Generate earnings from schedule is selected, base earnings statement lines for the position are not generated. Only the recurring earnings specified as payroll earning codes on the Worker form are generated.

  • If Generate earnings from schedule is selected and Generate salary is not selected:

    • A Schedule is required. You can select from among the calendars that have been composed for the legal entity that is selected in the Paid by field.

    • A Default earning code is required.

    • A day-by-day breakout of earnings for the position is shown in the worker’s earnings statement.

  • If Generate salary is selected and Generate earnings from schedule is not selected:

    • A Default earning code is required.

    • The worker is paid the uniform position salary amount for each pay period, and a single line is included in the earnings statement. The line will have the date of the last day in the pay period.

      NoteNote

      If earnings statement lines were entered manually before the earnings were generated, the salary could be split across more than one line. The total of the manually entered lines and the single generated line is always the uniform salary amount.

  • If both Generate salary and Generate earnings from schedule are selected:

    • A Schedule is required. You can select from among the calendars that have been composed for the legal entity that is selected in the Paid by field.

    • A Default earning code is required.

    • The worker is paid the uniform position salary amount for each pay period.

    • A day-by-day breakout of earnings for the position is shown in the worker’s earnings statement.

ImportantImportant

When a worker is on a paid leave, you must assign a schedule to the worker’s position in order to incorporate the leave settings. This is required even if you generate earnings by salary for that position, and not from a schedule.

If an earning code is assigned to the leave type in the leave record, earnings lines generated for the position during the leave will show a daily breakout. If no earning code is assigned to the leave type, the leave represents unpaid leave. No earnings lines will be generated during the leave period, and the salary amount will be adjusted, although you can manually modify the earnings statement to add earnings statement lines.

For more information about schedules, see Work schedule and leave tasks.
