Employee types can be used to subcategorise employees into different criteria, for example, full-time, part-time, over/under 18, paid per hour/salaried, interns etc. This is useful if you want to dispense supplements, apply Absence accounts or set up Working time rules.

How to create or edit existing Employee types

You can set up employee types by going to Settings > People > General > Employee types and pressing Create.

Here you can give your employee type a name, for example, Intern, set up a salary code if you have a payroll integration in place and give it a description to easily distinguish the employee type from others.
