Organizations need an easy and automated way to apply premium pay when their employees work under unique or dangerous conditions. With the ever-growing complexity of these scenarios, it has become more challenging for organizations to easily apply supplementary compensation in the form of dollars or hours, when employees work under these conditions.
How can Infor WFM help?
With Infor Workforce Management (WFM), you can easily automate awarding additional compensation to employees’ timesheets as defined criteria are met. Infor WFM will take care of all the heavy lifting and managers can be assured that their employees are compensated appropriately and according to organizational policies when they work under these unique conditions.
How it works
Infor WFM allows for the configuration of an unlimited number of Shift Premium Zones. Shift Premium Zone definitions automatically validate eligibility for premium pay and apply the premium. The configuration supports a broad array of conditions and parameters including job, location, scheduled vs. unscheduled, specific shift start or end times, specific shift durations, etc.
In addition, Shift Premium Zone definitions can be combined with condition sets in the rule engine to provide even more flexibility such as different premiums on certain days, based on seniority, etc.
Shift Premium Zones have been available in all versions of Infor WFM starting with Version 3.
