Purpose of Form

This report is to be used when changing the cost distribution of an employee’s wages for a single existing and active position. If you need to look up their current cost distribution, please use the My Employees with Cost Distributions report in your Reports folder. The work orders used in the current contract are identified in the “Distribution WO Column” with respective percentages.

Important: This form is not effective for making changes to incorrect past cost distributions. If you require a historical change, please contact for assistance with a JV to move the wages.
