You can view a list of suggested tier levels for your employees based on their payroll information. These suggestions are based on details like pay basis (salary or hourly), employment status (full time, part time or casual), and pay runs processed in February or June.
Because each business is different, the way employees are set up and paid will always vary. This means that sometimes a tier level can't be suggested. In these cases, and to confirm the suggestions, you can check the employee's payroll details to determine their tier level.

Here are some tips for gathering information about your employees to help work out their tier levels. You should also check the ATO's information about the 80-hour threshold for employees for help determining tier levels.
- Check if the employee is paid an hourly rate or an annual salary, and their default hours per week (Payroll menu > Employees > click to open an employee's details > Employee details tab)
