Incorrect Pay Amounts in Time Entry Client Payroll Manager

Solution

Pay for time is affected by a variety of different issues. First, gather the following information:

  1. The employee’s name and number.
  2. The date of the time record.
  3. The branch, job and step number being used.

Now check the following:

  • Is the job step set to pay in the desired way?
    • Some pay code calculation types dictate the type of pay or available options for pay, others allow a variety of different pay methods. 
    • In versions after 7.1, the pay methodology is defined by the pay code in tandem with the ‘Paid using’ option directly below it.
  • Is the job step set to cap earnings at minimum wage?
  • Is the correct prevailing wage assigned to the job step?
  • What is the rate of the prevailing wage used on the job step for the date of the time record?
  • For piece-rated job steps, what time study values are in effect for the date of the time record?  
  • For jobs paid based on productivity, does the job have a work type? If so, make a note of it.
  • Does the employee in question have a Staff or Contract wage rate in effect for the date of the time record?
  • For productivity-based steps, does the employee have a rating for the specific job step on the Job/Activity Step Productivity?
    • If so, what rating is in effect for the date of the time record?
    • If not, does the employee have a rating for the work type used on the job step, if there is one.
      • If so, what Work Type rating is in effect for the date of the time record?
      • If not, does the employee have an overall productivity rating?
        • If so, what overall productivity rating is in effect for the date of the time record?
