Data Management What are the Pay Rate Cards and why is relevant to provide the service? To ensure your care professionals are getting allocated the right earnings, you will need to create pay rates and assign them to your care professionals. If the incorrect pay rate is assigned in a rate card, the visit could show a 0 value in Hastee.

Please note: You must set up pay rates in the Birdie Platform before your care professionals check into their scheduled visits, otherwise it will not calculate earnings and the balance shown at Hastee won’t be accurate.

Why is the NIN number a mandatory field to be able to hire Hastee’s services? Hastee utilizes the National Insurance Number (NIN) as the primary and distinct worker identifier. This ID serves as the key means through which offices can identify their workers and process deductions for advances taken by employees in each pay cycle.

What does Hastee need in order to provide you with its services? Setup Template: The “Setup template” is a document that Hastee will request you, the employer, to complete. It entails specifying the commencement date of your pay cycle, the end date, the cut-off date (the point after which employees cannot request salary advances to allow ample time for pay slip preparation), and the payment date. We will require you to provide this information for both your salaried and contingent workers. Set up template ENG.xlsx
Admin Portal Roles: Administrators hold access to the Hastee Admin Portal, where they can view your workers’ data along with essential information like visit records, cashouts, and balances. In addition to this, specific roles involve responsibilities such as receiving the “Deductions Report” and invoices. Considering the sensitivity of the data accessible through these roles, we kindly ask for careful consideration when selecting the Administrator. Admin Portal Roles.pdf

Salaried Workers Template: The “Salaried workers template” is a document that must be completed by the offices. It should include the National Insurance Number (NIN), full name, email address, and annual salary details. This is necessary because the salary information is not available in Birdie so to be able to offer our services, we must manually add this info to our database.

Pay Cycle Will the advances made by my employees be automatically deducted from their payslips? At the moment, this is not an automated process as this is not included in the scope of our integration with Birdie. However, in the future, this could be automated.

The current process works as follows – at the end of each pay cycle, we produce the “Deductions Report”, which is the document that includes all the advances that your employees have made during the pay cycle and its corresponding fees, so that you can easily apply those deductions in your employees’ payslips.
