Placing an Employee on a Grade Step
If you include a grade as part of an employee's assignment, you can place the employee on a step on the associated grade scale.
You place an employee using the Grade Step Placement window. When you open this window, information about the grade and scale appears automatically. By default, the ceiling point is the one you defined for the grade. However, you can enter a special ceiling point for individual employees in the Assignment window.
To place an employee on a grade step:
1. Set your effective date to the date when the placement should come into effect.
2. Select the point or step on which to place the employee assignment.
3. If you want the employee's placement to increment automatically when you run the Increment Progression Points Process, check Auto-Increment.
4. You can select a reason for manually entering a placement. You can add values to the list of valid reasons by defining values for the QuickCode Type PLACEMENT_REASON.
The Progression Point Values block displays the rates you have defined for the pay scale, and the values corresponding to the selected progression point.
