In Oracle HRMS, elements are grouped into primary classifications such as Earnings and Voluntary Deductions. In a human resources department, you can use the classifications to identify groups of elements for information and analysis purposes. In a payroll department, you use the classifications to control processing, including the order in which elements are processed, and the balances they feed.
These primary element classifications are supplied. You cannot change them as they are designed to meet the legislative requirements of your country.
