Specification * The rota must be clear and should be easy to make alterations if needed. * It must be easy to reproduce a payslip if any of the staff happen to lose their copy of the payslip * The new system must calculate pay easily and produce a pay slip for staff including: pay rate, hours worked/shifts each night, deductions for tax (10%) and National Insurance (5%) and a final amount paid. * The system needs to produce a bar chart showing how much each employee has earned during the week. ...read more.
