Changing the pay rate during a pay period
If your employee's rate changes during a pay period follow these steps
Rate changes often fall between pays, which is easy. Before turning on their timesheet, just change the rate in the employee's profile (under standard pay), save the update and you're done! All new pays will use the new rate.
Rate change happens during a pay period. The system supports this and it is easy to do but you must follow the correct order:
- Enter the times for the days which will be paid at the original rate
- Update and save
Notice the '..(-1)'. This denotes that there has been a chave in the profile and that this line is using the previous setting. In this case the previous minimum wage rate of $14.25 / hour. Now you need to complete the weeks entries using the new rate.
- Click '+' to add a row
Select 'Standard pay'
- Enter the rest of the weeks entries that need to be at the new rate, using 'Standard pay'
- Update and save the timesheet
- Check the details reflect the combination of the old and new rate
Nice work, you're all done here! Now you can finish the pay as normal.
