How do I specify what departments my employee works in?

Managing department assignments


  1. Navigate to the employee's profile and click on "Compensation".
  2. Scroll down to the section titled Payroll Departments, and click on "Manage Department Assignments".
  3. Assign a new department by moving it from the Available box to the Assigned box by double clicking it, or by selecting it and using the arrows in the center. Specify which of the assigned departments is the primary department by specifying it as the "Home Department" below. The home department represents the primary cost center for this employee, and if it is changing you will have the option to transition their compensation over to the new department (check box below).
  4. Click "Save" to save your changes. If this employee is on a pre-existing input sheet, you will have to remove them and add them back on to update these settings.
