Pay Schemes shows the variety of pay schemes available in the company. It also indicates the type of pay scheme a particular employee is using.

There are 2 types of Pay Schemes:

  • Shared pay scheme: Allows you to group employees with the same pay scheme together. Changes to the pay scheme will automatically be applied to all employees. Usually used for part-timers with the same pay scheme
  • Individual pay scheme: Pay scheme that applies to only one individual. This is useful for full time employees who receive different pays.

It is important to set the Pay Scheme properly, in order to:

  • Ensure accurate calculation of the employee's overtime pay on his work day/non-work day/holiday.
  • Keep up with Employment Act mandate by MOM Singapore.
