Under some Awards and Enterprise Agreements, employees are entitled to be paid at a higher rate of pay when performing certain duties. This concept is frequently referred to as higher duties.

This guide details how you can use teams in Tanda to automatically pay higher duties when employees work in specific teams.

Before you can automate the payment of higher duties, you will need to have award rules in your account that pay the applicable higher duty. For further information on creating higher duties award rules in your account:

Linking Higher Duties award rules to teams

Navigate to Workforce > Teams and click on the team you would like to configure a rate for. Under advanced options, enter the relevant tag.

For example, if employees are paid at the level 3 rate of pay when working in the Duty Manage team, enter the tag 'Level 3 Higher Duties' against that team.

Tag employees who are eligible to be paid the higher duty

For the rate to correctly apply on the timesheet, ensure you have the same tag against the employee profile for everyone who is entitled to be paid the higher rate.

The correct rate will now automatically apply when employees clock into teams with an associated tag configured.

To make it easier to view and edit higher duties on timesheets, you can enable the ability to manually view and edit higher duties tags on timesheets. To enable this toggle on timesheets, navigate to Settings > All Settings > View all timesheet settings > Advanced and confirm that you have the feature below enabled.

The info icon below confirms which tag is applying to the shift.
