Pay Increase during a Pay Run
If you have a pay increase you can just update the pay rate to reflect the change. What if you have to provide a pay increase in the middle of a pay run?
While there are few ways to make the payment for the pay increase during the pay run, following is the recommended way of performing the pay increase in the middle of a pay run.
Let's assume that the old rate is $20 and that for the last 2 days of the pay run the employee rate is $23
In the pay slip of the employee:
- Under the "Time Sheet", , enter all the hours as you normally would do.
- Under "Manual Hours and Manual/Auto Rates" select the old pay rate, select the appropriate type, enter description saying "Pay Increase", enter net hours of the new rate, enter the increase (in this case $3) in both base rate and loaded rate.
- Save the pay slip and then check if pay run figures are what you expect. That's all you need for the current pay run.
- Before you run the next pay run, where all the days will be paid at $23, go to the appropriate pay rate (Payroll -> Pay Rates) and update the figure to $23. When you run the next pay run, you also need to delete the entry under "Manual Hours and Manual/Auto Rates".
