Jobs: Can I change a job from salaried to hourly or hourly to salaried?

Nick -

No, the system will not allow you to change the Pay Type on a current position from Salaried to Hourly or Hourly to Salaried.

As a workaround, you can consider the following: create a new job with the updated Pay Type.

  1. For the Current Job:
      • Change the title. Examples: General Manager - Deprecated or General Manager - ZZZ.
      • Turn the status to Off. 
  2. Create a New Job with the updated Pay Type. 
  3. Update Current Employees with new Job. 
      • If you would like to add the newly created job to any current employees with that title, then you will want to add the new position with the new/current date and remove the old position. This will show a note that the new position was added and the old was removed which will record that the position was changed from salary to hourly.
  4. Update Background Checks, if applicable.
      • It is also recommended that background checks be turned off for the new position while you are updating the current employees with that title (if you choose to do that).
