If your employee's pay has changed, you'll need to add a new compensation to reflect the new amount. This will often be due to a pay raise or promotion, but you'll need to add a new compensation if an employee steps down from a higher-paying position as well.

There are two compensations to choose from in Humi:

  • Regular Pay – this refers to the compensation an employee receives for their main position. 
  • Additional Compensation – if your employee has more than one position, you can create multiple compensations using this option. Learn more here.

This article will explain how to add a new compensation for regular pay in Humi.
