Assign Salary Structure to Employees

This help page demonstrates steps to assign salary structure to employees. If any change is made to a salary structure, it needs to be reassigned to employees, or edited for the employee to reflect the changes.

Empxtrack allows creation of multiple salary structures in the system. Once a salary structure is created, it needs to be assigned to employees. The system provides a default salary structure which is non editable and used for the employees (by default) if a custom salary structure is not defined.
