Entering Compensation and Benefits
An employee must have an entry for an element to receive that element as a component of his or her compensation and benefits package. You can start, update and stop element entries for individual employees in a number of different ways:
- You can define standard element links so that eligible employees receive an entry automatically.
- You can use MIX (Mass Information Exchange) to enter a batch of element entries, using defaults for fast entry.
- You can make manual entries of most elements for an individual assignment in the Element Entries window. However, there are two exceptions. You enter salaries in the Salary Administration window, and you enter absences in the Absence Detail window.
Processing Element Entries
If you also implement Oracle Payroll, you can process these entries in a payroll run. The payroll process is the means by which you calculate actual earnings and deductions for each employee in each pay period.
Oracle Human Resources and Oracle Payroll fully share the information you set up for compensation and benefits. You use the same elements, the same rules to determine eligibility, and the same entries to show personal levels of compensation and benefits.
If you decide not to implement Oracle Payroll you can still use your HR compensation and benefit information for transfer to your own payroll system.
