Zenoti considers the following settings when calculating payroll for an employee in this model:

  • Payout Model – When setting up payroll configurations for an employee, you can choose from:

    • Hourly Pay Only: This model uses the hourly pay rate but not the commission rate.

    • Commission + Base Rate: This model uses both the commission rate and base pay rate.

    • Max of Commission or Base Rate: This model uses either the commission rate or base pay rate (whichever is higher).

    The calculation also includes the hourly pay rate for secondary work tasks and overtime as applicable in all three models.

  • 7i Overtime Calculation – You can choose whether you want to include 7(i) Overtime calculation.
