There may be up to five (5) different labor rates for each employee, such as regular time, overtime, and double time. Conversely, each rate could be assigned to a shift. For example: use Rate 1 as first shift, Rate 2 as second shift, Rate 3 as third shift, Rate 4 as time and a half, and Rate 5 as double time or holiday time.

Each employee may be assigned to multiple labor crafts. Each labor craft will likely have more than one employee assigned to it. 

Work Orders use labor rate along with hours worked to calculate maintenance costs. Labor crafts are also assigned to tasks and used to link labor and tasks on a work order. For generic-type tasks, all employees should be assigned a general labor craft.
