If an employee performs multiple duties, they must be classified in the highest-rated classification that they perform.
For Example, if an employee works in the office doing clerical duties, but also regularly travels to meet with customers, they would fall under the higher rated Outside Salesperson classification for all of their payroll.
There are a few exceptions to this rule. For Example:
1. Bill's Lawn and Landscape Company has an employee that performs lawn maintenance, new landscaping and tree trimming. If their payroll records are properly documented, they can pay the appropriate rate for each type of work they are doing.
2. Gina's Pizzeria has an employee that works inside a restaurant and also does delivery. If their payroll records are properly documented, they can pay the restaurant rate for the inside work and the delivery rate only while delivering.
3. In the construction industry, if your payroll records are properly documented, you can utilize multiple rates for the same employee doing different types of work, as long as the class code allows it.
