What If You Need Multiple Prevailing Rates?
There may be situations where you need more than one Prevailing Rate in the same span of time. To accomplish this, you can use 'Job Types':
Which Rate goes with Which Job?
When multiple Prevailing Rates are used, it is important to understand the rules that determine which Prevailing Rate goes with which Job.
- If a Job has no Job Type assigned to it, then the Prevailing Rate will be whatever has no Job Type in the Prevailing Rate table. So in the following example, there are two Prevailing Rate that do not have any Job Types. If the Job Details are saved after 03/01/2017, then the Prevailing Rate will be based on $8.66.
- If a Job has a Job Type assigned to it but that Job Type is NOT included in the Prevailing Rate table, then the same rule applies as above. For example, if a Job has a Job Type of 'Cleaning', then because this Job Type is not in the table above, it will be treated as if there is no Job Type assigned.
- If a Job has a Job Type that IS included in the Prevailing Rate table, then the Prevailing Rate used is the one in the table. If a Job is assigned to 'Piece Work - $10', then looking at the table the Prevailing Rate would be $10.
