PayItems and PayGroups within ShiftCare allow the flexibility to assign varying payroll categories to staff. Each payItem (weekday, weekend or public holiday) makes up a payroll category. In turn, each PayGroup can be assigned to staff members. For example, Casual staff can be assigned to a Casual PayGroup, same goes for Part-Time etc).
Note: Naming conventions may vary from organisation to organisation.
