With PARiM you can to set up preferred Employment Types to help you differentiate your employees based on contracts - this is one of the best ways to classify your people. With Employment Types, you can meet all your company's needs for the various contract types in use. 

Please find below the overview of how to set up Employment Types and use them in your daily activities in PARIM:

1. Setting up employment types

Based on the Subscription plan, there are limits on the number of Employment types your PARiM environment allows:

Starter plan - 1 employment type

Professional - 4 editable employment types

Premium - unlimited employment types, customisable

Employment Types can be set up in the Employment Settings under People Settings within System Settings. We have listed ready-made default employment types which you can edit based on your needs or you can create new ones.

2. Creating new contract type

Please click on 'Add Employment Type' and fill in all the type details under each specific section and click on 'Save'. 

  • Details - name, description and option to choose whether the type is active or not

  • Pay Schedule - choose from a pre-defined list or create a new one

  • Absence Tracking - choose if an absence is tracked or not

  • Work&Rest time rules - choose from pre-defined active rules

Good to know! If an employment type is active, then it will be visible in all the filters throughout the system, but if the contract type is inactive, then it will not be visible in the filters.

3. Editing Employment Type

Each 'Employment Type' can be activated, deactivated and edited based on your company's need. Click on the type´s name to open the Edit dialogue and after changes have been made click on Save.

Good to know! Pay Schedules are not Employment type-specific and if you decide to edit Pay Schedule details, then this update will affect all the Employment Types with this Pay Schedule.

4. Adding employment types to people

Once you have created employment types, you can add these to multiple people in one go on the People page OR you can add them individually to a person on their profile. Please read on how to add employment types to people HERE.

5. Using employment types on People page

On the People page, you will find a filter 'Employment types' under which all the active employment types will appear. With this filter, you can quickly find and manage people with a specific contract type.

There is a possibility to add a visible column 'Employment Types' to the People's page.

TIP! Create a saved view for HR management purposes using Employment columns and contract types filters!

6. Using Employment Types on the Schedule

On the Schedule calendar, there is a filter called 'Employment types' - only active types will show there. Select one of the employment types and people who have this type added to them will show in the schedule's people list. The filter will help you to schedule shifts only for people with specific contract types.
