What is a Payment date group?
The payment date group is a template that you can manage employees' payment schedule. This includes pay period, payday, and pay frequency.
What is the difference between the payment date group and the working condition?
The payment date group is to manage the employee's pay period and payday.
The working condition is to reflect the employment contracts to our system, such as the overtime calculation method or paid leave calculation method.

How many payment date groups do we need?
It is up to you, but you may find it useful to follow the steps below to find out how many groups you need.
1. Is the pay period the same for all the employees?
⇒ It is recommended for you to create a new payment date group if you have multiple pay periods.
(e.g. You have two pay periods which starts from 1st to the end of the month, and from 19th to 20th of the following month)
2. Is the payment method the same for all the employees?
⇒ It is recommended for you to create a new payment date group if you have employees who get paid in the same month of their pay period, and also have employees who get paid in the following month of their pay period.
3. Is the payment date the same for all the employees?
⇒ Even if the pay period and payment method are the same, it is recommended for you to create a new payment date group if you have multiple payday.
For example, full-time employees are paid on the 10th, but part-time workers are paid on the 15th.
4. Do we only need one payment date group if the pay period, payment method and payday are the same for all the employees?
⇒ Even if the pay period, payment method and payday are the same, it is recommended for you to create a new payment date group if you have multiple employment statuses.
It will be easier for you to filter when you want to check their HR and payroll data.
