Employee Benefit

This module implements employee benefits in order to produce payslips.

Employee benefits can be computed automatically at a specific point in a payroll structure. They can also be computed using the button on the payslip form, in the 'Employee Benefits' tab.

Also, they can be added manually on a payslip.

If a benefit has 2 different rates in the same payslip period, the 2 rates will be weighted by the fraction of the payslip over which they apply.


Setting employee benefits

Go to Human Resources -> Configuration -> Payroll -> Employee Benefit Categories Create your own employee benefit. Select the salary rules over which the benefit will be summed. Add as many different rates as needed.

On the contract of an employee, add employee benefits. Select the category of benefit, the rate and dates between which the benefit will be activated.

  • Employee contribution:

  • Employer contribution:
    result = rule.sum_benefits(payslip, codes=['C3'], employer=True)

The parameter codes is the list of benefit categories to include. To sum over the benefits related to the current salary rule:

  • Employee contribution:
    result = rule.sum_benefits(payslip)
