To ensure that DLHE pay data are reliable and comparable, it is important this field meets expected response rates.
Higher education providers (HEPs) will have the option to convert the figure returned in Employment.EMPPAY and/or Employment.ESTEARN when a currency other than pound sterling is used. This conversion to pound sterling can happen at any point during the DLHE schedule and does not need to be the exchange rate as at the census date. When HEPs undertake a conversion in Employment.EMPPAY the HEP must ensure that the Employment.EMPCURRENCY is then returned as 1 'Pounds sterling'.
|Required for valid response||No|
