Assign Salary Structure to Employees

Empxtrack Free Payroll and HR Software

Start Now !

Once a salary structure is created, it needs to be assigned to employees. Empxtrack allows creation of multiple salary structures in the system. However, each time a change is made to them, it needs to be reassigned to the employees, or edited for the employee to reflect the changes. The system provides a default salary structure which is non editable and used for the employees (by default) if a custom salary structure is not defined.
