Salary Components

Salary components are part of the salary structure (the total salary for a specific employee or a group of employees). They can either be earnings added to the employee’s basic salary, such as transportation allowances or compensation for overtime hours, or deductions from the basic salary, such as insurance and late penalties.

Salary components can be formulated as flexible conditions. For example, you can specify that for every hour of delay from the basic shift, a deduction of 0.5 of the employee’s basic salary should be applied, and so on.
