The Employee’s Hourly Rate On The Manage Salary Page Does Not Automatically Populate (Doc ID 2319813.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


The employee’s hourly rate on the Manage Salary page does not automatically populate from their assigned Salary Step. The HR user must enter the hourly rate on the Manage Salary page. This could result in the wrong hourly rate being entered for an employee.


All jobs have a salary grade and step plan associated with them. Each step plan has a series of steps (step 1-5, or step 1-10) and each step has an associated hourly rate. If an employee in a certain job is at a certain step, then by MOU/Policy, their hourly rate is a specific value. In Cloud, we can assign to the employee:
1. Job
2. Position
3. Grade
4. Step Plan
5. Step

However, when assigning a hourly rate to the employee, the hourly rate is manually entered and does not automatically-populate from their assigned step (#5).


Since the hourly rate is not automatically populated from the assigned step, and requires manual entry, then there is potential for error when entering the rate. Because of this, HR is hesitant to move some of the HR transaction responsibility out to the departments.

The hourly rate should automatically update when the Job assignment step is completed.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Grade and grade ladder with steps.
2. Assign that grade and grade ladder to the position and to an employee's assignment.
3. Navigate to Manage Employment for an employee.
4. Select Grade/step details. This will show you the step assigned to the employee and the associated step rate for this employees assignment.
5. Navigate to Manage Salary. The rate must be manually entered here. There is no relationship between the step rate on the assignment and the rate entered here on Manage Salary.
