❗️Effective Wage Date will not be available if you have 'Wage-Sync' enabled with your POS integration.
⚠️ Wages and salaries can only be adjusted up to one month in the past.


Setting a wage or salary change for a future date

You can proactively enter a new wage or salary for an employee if the rate is to change on a future date.

⚠️ Mangers will require the 'Can view wages' and 'Can edit employees'  manager permissions in order to update an Employee's wage or salary.
Here's how:

1. Head over to More > Employees.

2. Select the specific Employee's profile to edit it and head to the 'Wages' tab where you'll see the Employee's current wage(s) or salary. 

If setting a salary, select 'Weekly Salary' from the dropdown menu under 'Wage Type.'

3. Next to the wage or salary you would like to adjust, enter the new wage or salary and select the date this will take effect.

4. Be sure to click 'Save.' 

On the chosen date, all new shifts created for this Role and employee will have the new wage or salary applied.

5. You can remove or edit the wage or salary change prior to the effective date by clicking the 'Garbage Can' or 'Pencil' icon.


Setting a wage or salary change in the past

If you have already created shifts for an employee before entering a wage or salary or forgot to set a new wage, you can use the Effective Wage Date function to change all shifts and punch wages up to one month in the past.
