ensuring that this document is necessary and that it reflects actual practice.
This activity is performed whenever you want
to submit a pay rate change to an employee's record.
When a record change is submitted through
Manager Self-Service, the information goes through a workflow for approval. There
is a time-delay as the transaction is processed. When it has completely gone
through the workflow, you will receive an email notification.
Refer to An Overview of
the MSS Approval Process [REFHRI01]
for details on the MSS Workflow.

You can enter information in
any of the fields to affect the employee's pay rate according to the function. The
top left region of the window displays current pay rate information. The Proposed
Pay Rate grid is where you should enter the new pay rate. The top row of this
grid shows the change amount and the bottom row shows the value of the new pay

Parnassus will make the
calculations and populate the remaining pay rate fields. To indicate a decrease
in pay rate, enter a minus sign before the number in the top row or enter the
lower rate in the new rate field.
Example: -4.50 in the hourly rate
field of the top row will decrease the current hourly rate by $4.50. A negative
number in any box on the bottom line is invalid. It is not possible to pay an
employee a negative amount.
If you want to change an
amount in a field that you have already affected, click in one of the fields, enter
a new value and tab or click in any other change box. This will recalculate all

Check to be sure that all the
details are accurate. Changes are indicated with blue dots. It is always a good
idea to double-check the all data as you move through the pages of Change
Assignment in case other data needs to be updated too.
Attach the electronic copy of
the pay rate change letter to the employee.
This electronic communication
can be an email notification, an electronic version of a paper letter, or a
transcribed copy of a paper letter. This information helps to clarify and ensure accuracy of the transaction
and become a permanent part of the employment record.
Comments to Approver on the Review page.
Here you can add comments to
the record which will only be viewed by the parties in the workflow approval
process. Add approval comments to
provide additional information to aid in the workflow approval process, such as
when an employee’s wages should be charged to an account that is not the
default (primary) account for salaries in that department.
This comment will not be
attached to the employee's permanent record; rather, it will be attached to the
workflow and will assist those who approve the transaction. Comments will help
the transaction to move through the workflow faster.
