Here are a few reasons why wage/salary may be incorrect:

  • Modifications to wages/salaries, and their effective dates.
  • Transitions between wage and salary settings (or vice-versa).
  • Missing wage/salaries for roles with actual labor.
  • Absence of recorded breaks.

An Employee Was Not Paid/Underpaid.
In this scenario, the quickest solution would involve running an off-cycle payroll and manually entering the hours worked to ensure prompt payment for the Employee.

To ensure consistency in reporting (for ex: between payroll and historical timesheets), add the hours in manually in time clocking.

An Employee Was Overpaid.
In this scenario, you can choose to either:

(1) adjust your Earnings on the next Payroll to balance out the discrepancy.

Or, (2) attempt to void and reissue the Employee's Pay (if it has been less than 5 banking days). To go with this option, click on the blue icon at the bottom right of your screen to start a chat with us and our Payroll team will be in touch soon.
If you have paid the Employee by paper check, reach out to your bank to cancel the check and start a chat with our Payroll team to remove the payroll item.

Employees who are paid a salary and request unpaid time off.
At this time, users who are paid a salary and request unpaid time off will not be reflected in labour reporting.

To account for this in the meantime, you may wish to to do the following during their requested unpaid time off: (1) deactivate them, or (2) remove their wage from their user profile.  After their time off is complete, you may return their profile settings to their original state.
