You have the option of entering a default position pay rate, custom worker pay rates, and client pay rates when tracking pay in the Nowsta platform. This article will provide details for how and when to do so and the order in which the rates apply when there is more than one rate assigned.
When there are multiple rates for one shift, the order in which the rates apply corresponds with the specificity of the rate. When available, custom worker pay rates will be applied first, then client pay rates, then default positions pay rates.
For example, if there is a default position rate of $20/hr and a client rate of $15/hr, the system would automatically apply the $15/hr client rate. The sorting feature is controlled by the specificity of the rate, not by the numerical value.
