Rate Category

The Rate Category indicates the basis for the pay rate.

It provides users with a method for grouping rates and hours submitted against those rates. Basically, the rate category determines how much a worker will get paid both within and outside of the standard working hours.

You’ll commonly see rate categories represented in the accounting section of job postings, where you will be required to confirm the amounts that are associated to the categories for that specific job.

Rate Categories group rates together for use on job postings.

Navigating the Rate Category admin object

Select the Rate Category admin object from the Rate Structure section of the admin menu to view the list of rate categories used by WorkingNet.

Create a Rate Category

WorkingNet is creating a new Customer Support position for their London Office. It will need a new rate structure in SAP Fieldglass in order to accommodate the regional characteristics of a UK-based workforce.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you’re tasked with creating that rate structure. The first thing you must do is create a rate category.

This new position requires 24/7 coverage, so there will be two overnight shifts that will pay a premium over the regular ST, OT, and DT rates that are assigned to the day shift. So two additional rate categories are needed to capture the rate: one for a night shift and one for a morning. You’ve already added the rate category for the morning shift, so now you’ll add the night rate.
