Shop Floor Labor Collection - Labor Rates

We use an average rate for all employees in a given 'department'. It is
based on salaries, machines, overhead, etc...

Subject: [Vantage] Shop Floor Labor Collection - Labor Rates

For those who use shop floor labor collection ... as I understand it ...

Vantage uses the rate at the Operation to generate the estimate for the job
...

it uses the labor rate at the Shop Employee level to record the actual
charge to the job ...

How do you prevent publishing actual shop employee labor rates to those who
can read the Production Detail reports? We do not want to publish that Joe
makes $15 vs Karen at $20.

A couple options that I have thought of:

Use Average labor rate for all employees

Limit those who can print Production Detail Report (difficult ... we would
like to them to see summary level but not detail.)

We're running Vantage 6.1.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
