To update an employee's salary, the steps are as follows:
- Go to the Employee tab.
- Search for the employee in the Employee List, and select the pencil/edit icon.
- Scroll down to the blue "Add/Update Salary/Position" button.
- Once the page loads, select the blue "Add a New Rate" button.
*Do not use the edit/pencil icon to add a new rate. This button is only used for adjusting the start and end date of a position, or adjusting errors of the employee's current wage (Example: If an employee's wage was accidentally entered as $100/hr when it's supposed to be $10/hr).
- Fill in the necessary information:
Enter the new salary rate, the frequency (hourly, daily, monthly, bi-weekly, weekly, semi-monthly, yearly), the start date, and the hours in the pay period if applicable.*
*If you are increasing an hourly employee's rate, and the start date is in the middle of a pay period, they will see a blended hourly rate on their next pay stub.
Payroll Run: Dec 25 - Jan 7
Dec 25 - Dec 31 $10 / hour (20 hrs worked) = $200
Jan 1 - Jan 7 $11 / hour (30 hrs worked) = $330
Total Hours: 50 hrs workedSalary Employees:
Total Wage Earned: $530
Hourly wage shown in pay stub will be: $530 / 50 hrs = $10.60
Enter the new salary rate, the frequency (hourly, daily, monthly, bi-weekly, weekly, semi-monthly, yearly), the start date, and the hours in the pay period if applicable.* If you are increasing a salary employee's wage, we recommend selecting the start date of a new pay period.**
**If you are adding a new rate for a salaried employee, or changing an hourly employee to a salaried employee and the start date is in the middle of a pay period, you will be prompted to prorate the employee's salary for the pay period.
If you are adding a new daily rate and the start date selected is the current date, you will be prompted to prorate the employee's hours for the day.
Once complete, select the "Add new Salary Rate".
