What is a bonus rate

Assigning a bonus to a user allows you to increase their base hourly rate, but keep them on the relevant position and hourly rate.  For example, John might be assigned to a level 1, 18+ rate.  You can now leave him assigned to that award rate, and increase his base rate by using a bonus amount.  All the penalties will now be calculated based on the award rate + bonus amount. 

Why is this important

Depending on the circumstances some organisations may choose to adjust the pay rate of some users using this feature.
