  • When making a merit and promotional increase at the same time is it possible to configure the system so that the merit % is applied to the post base promotional salary, i.e. so that merit is applied to base + promo rather than just base?


  • Compensation


  • Yes you can do this. You need to use the compounding feature. Here is a sample piece of code using compounding. In this case merit was based on curSalary, extra2 was based on curSalary + merit, extra was based on merit + Cur Salary + extra2

   <merit-calc basedOn="CurrentSalary"></merit-calc> <comp-compounding useFor="merit"> <percentage-calc-base-includes fieldId="curSalary"/> </comp-compounding> <comp-compounding useFor="extra2"> <percentage-calc-base-includes fieldId="merit"/> <percentage-calc-base-includes fieldId="curSalary"/> </comp-compounding> <comp-compounding useFor
="extra"> <percentage-calc-base-includes fieldId="merit"/> <percentage-calc-base-includes fieldId="curSalary"/>
<percentage-calc-base-includes fieldId="extra2"/> </comp-compounding> </comp-calculation> <comp-budget-label budgetOn="merit+lumpSum"> <comp-field-label><![CDATA[Merit]]></comp-field-label> </comp-budget-label>
