PARiM’s Pay and Charge Rules lie at the core of our all-new Pay Manager. They are an effortless way to automate rates you use to pay your people as well as to charge your clients.

Standard Pay and Charge Rules

Standard Pay and Charge Rules, which are available for all of our users, are already extremely powerful. You can use the following pay and charge rules: 

  • personal (e.g. Mike Smith, Linda Jones..)

  • position-based (e.g. waiter, head nurse, supervisor..)

  • employment type (e.g. full-time, part-time, intern..)

  • location (e.g. a hospital or a restaurant, a specific ward or room in it..)

  • client-specific (e.g. client A, client B..)

Combining together rules is incredibly easy, removing a lot of manual work and overhead every month. For example, you can set both pay and charge rates for:

  • All waiters... 

  • ...that work full-time...

  • a specific location in London...

  • ...for an individual client.

NB! When making changes to rates in your system, please always ensure that you are not editing existing rates outside of expected date ranges.
For example, when a new rate is coming up soon, you would need to add an end date to the existing rule and create a new rule that starts with the new from the next day.

Advanced Pay and Charge Rules

Advanced Pay and Charge Rules, available for our Premium and Enterprise customers, take rate automation to the next level. With them, you can create sophisticated rate matrixes that streamline various more complex processes.

Automating some of the most difficult parts of your organisation’s operations: 

  • Shift hours – which means different rates for a specific set of hours inside a shift. With this condition, you can set up an overtime rate starting from a specific shift hour. In effect, creating shift-specific overtime rules. For example, first 1 - 4  hours of a given shift can have a rate of £8 per hour and the next 5 - 8 hours of a shift can have a rate of £9 per hour.

  • Hours of the day – you can create a rate for specific hours of the day. With this condition, the rate is dependent on the time of the day and will change during a shift if the shift ranges across different periods. For example, you can create a rule with a rate of £8 per hour for 7.00 - 19.00 and a second rate with a rate of £9 per hour for 19.00 - 7.00 and if the rule applies to a shift that lasts from 15.00 - 23.00, then the rate for the first four hours will be £8 per hour and for the next four hours £9 per hour.

  • Age range – rate can be set up for a specific age or a specific age range. This condition helps to set up minimum wage rules based on age. For example, people aged between 18 - 24 earn £8 per hour and 25 - 35 earn £9 per hour.

  • Start time – a rate can be set up based on when the shift starts. With this condition, you can set up different day and night shift rates.

  • Days of the week – you can create a rate for a specific weekday(s). With this condition, you can set up weekday rates and weekend rates.

Furthermore, you can combine the time-based conditions together to meet even the most complex needs, building a bespoke pay and charge matrix.
For example, you can build age-specific day and night shift rates different for weekday and weekend.

Instantly available automation

Once you have set up all the rules then PARiM will automatically give you the right pay and charge rates when you create a shift in the Calendar View.
