After you have enabled your industry award, you will need to setup your staff’s employment type and classification/level. You can do this by going to Payroll > Payroll Manager:

You will see your Award enabled under Active Awards. At the end of the row click on Add Staff to classify the staff on this award:

To allocate all staff to the same award, just click that button at the top, otherwise you can select next to each employee the drop down to select their individual awards:

Custom Payroll Setup is used for staff that you don't want to pay as per the award or if you have custom rules in your account. 

Once you have allocated all staff to their award, click the green save button and then you can classify staff under their type and level:

Important information

  • For staff who are paid the same each pay period regardless of the hours they worked, you will classify them as salaried in Tanda, so that their hours never get exported to payoll.
  • If you pay a staff member a higher rate than the Award, you can override this within their individual profile by entering a base hourly rate in their payroll tab.

If you don’t see a particular type or classification that you use, please email support@tanda.co or your onboarding consultant. Some classifications i.e. trainees, aren’t automatically built in due to the complexity of some awards.

If you need to come back to this section at a later date as you need to clarify or change some information, you can always get back to it by going to Payroll > Payroll Manager and clicking the Add Staff button again. 

You can also change the classification of staff on their individual staff profile, within the Payroll tab.
