Worker Pay Types

A Worker Pay Type is an association category used when worker rates are dependent on the type of worker selected for a position. They allow for variances in pay rates based upon certain circumstances, such as whether the supplier or buyer will be responsible for paying the worker.

For example, WorkingNet has hired Joe through reCrewIT, who will pay Joe. However, they hired Ravi through Colabor8, but Ravi will be paid directly by WorkingNet. It’s the Worker Pay Type that defines that distinction.

A Worker Pay Type would also be used to capture whether the worker, buyer, or supplier would be responsible for paying the wage taxes. It captures the differences in those payment structures so they can be reflected appropriately in the rate grid.

This admin object only displays when the company configuration "Use Worker Type" is enabled.

Because of the type of position required, a hiring manager is required to select the Worker Pay Type on this job posting.
