Compensation conditions are user definable rules applied to services that automatically increase or decrease the amount of compensation due to staff according to set conditions.

 

Pet Sitter Plus provides employers with a means to pay staff by applying a standard compensation rate (or amount) for each service. The compensation amount can:

  • vary according to the type of service

  • either be a fixed amount or a percentage of the charge rate

 

There are however, a variety of situations that can arise when you might want to override the standard compensation rate and pay a higher or a lower rate:

  • Many of these situations can be programmed into the system using compensation conditions.

  • Compensation conditions will automatically adjust the standard compensation rate to reflect your detailed compensation rules which means you make fewer manual adjustments to your compensation report.


Step 1: How do I Add a Compensation Condition?
 

Tammy usually pays her sitters $7.50 per visit for carrying out a fish feeding service. However, at the weekend the sitter is paid $10.00. She will need to add a compensation condition to automatically increase the amount the sitter is paid on a weekend.

 

1. Click "FishFeed" from the service item list. 

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:

 

  • Add a Compensation Condition to your New Service Item

  • Add a Compensation Condition for different rates of pay

  • Add a Condition with Multiple Circumstances

2. Next click "Compensation Conditions".

 

3. Click the button for "Add a New Condition"

4. Choose the option "it is a weekend" from the dropdown.

5. Type in the compensation amount for the weekend service "$10.00".

 

6. Click "Add".

Your new compensation condition appears in the list.

 

You can see that if the service is scheduled on a weekend, the compensation will be automatically increased from $7.50 to $10.00.

Step 2: How do I Add a Compensation Condition based on different rates of pay?

 

Tammy usually pays her sitters $7.50 per visit for carrying out a fish feeding service. However, if they are at "Pay Level 2" the sitter is paid $8.50. She will need to add a compensation condition to automatically increase the amount the sitter is paid for this service.

 

Begin creating a compensation condition following the method you learnt in the steps above.

 

1. Choose "the staff type is" from the dropdown. 

 

2. Choose the client type "Pay Level 2" from the second dropdown.

 

3. Type in the higher pay amount "$8.50" and click "Add".

Your new compensation condition appears in the list.

 

You can see that if the service is scheduled for a sitter who is on Pay Level 2, the compensation will be automatically increased from $7.50 to $8.50.

 

Step 3: How do I Add a Compensation Condition for Multiple Circumstances?

 

Tammy usually pays her sitters $7.50 per visit for carrying out a fish feeding service. However, if they are at "Pay Level 2" the sitter is paid $8.50. However, when sitters take the job on a weekend, they are usually paid $10.00 unless they are at Pay Level 2, in which case they are paid $12.00. Tammy will need to add a multiple compensation condition to automatically increase the compensation amount for a weekend, BUT ALSO increase the compensation to the Pay Level 2 amount at the same time.

 

Begin creating a charge condition following the method you learnt in the steps above.

 

NOTE that you have two existing compensation conditions in your list.

  • One will increase the compensation paid for a weekend booking.

  • The other will increase the compensation paid to sitters who have the staff type "Pay Level 2".

 

1. Create a compensation condition and choose "the staff type is" and "Pay Level 2" from the dropdowns.

 

2. Then click "Add another if..."

3. Choose the condition "it is a weekend" from the dropdown.

 

4. Type in the new compensation amount "$12.00" for the new multiple condition. Click "Add".

Your new multiple compensation condition appears in the list with the others.

 

You can see that if the service is scheduled for a sitter who is paid at Pay Level 2 AND the job is scheduled on a weekend, the compensation will be automatically increased from $10.00 to $12.00.

Congratulations! You have completed this stage.
