Creating Unit Types

Unit Type

Unit Types are used when creating unit-based rates or defining fees in SOWs.

Unit Based rate types are used when workers are paid by the number of tasks or items completed. The Unit Type indicates the item or task that must be completed. For example, if Carla is paid $10 for every widget she assembles, the Unit Type is created to represent the widget.

The unit type must be created before the unit-based rate.

If the customer is not using unit-based rates, no unit types are needed.

Unit Types define the criteria for a worker's pay rate, such as hours, day, tasks, or items.

Navigating the Unit Type Admin Object

Select Unit Type from the Financial Data section of the admin menu to view a list of units associated to WorkingNet’s tenant.
