NOTE: You are setting the defaults for this particular misc. code type, but these can be overridden at the employee level if needed.

District Codes

District Codes

7. Enter the dollar Rate in the text box to determine the default rate at which the misc. pay is paid. For example, a district might pay $30/hr for afterschool work.

District Codes
