Employees → Recurring → Earnings tab → Add Earning
Click the Blue Add Earning button to enter a new recurring earning. A new window will appear on screen.
Pay Item: Select and additional fields appear. Contact your Payroll Support Team if a specific earning needs to be added to your account. Reference Number: (Optional)
💡 Schedule Override: When the earning should only occur on a specific pay period(s).
- Example: a Cell Phone Reimbursement only occurs on the 1st check date of each month; you would select 1st Pay of Month as the schedule override instead of Every Pay.
Start Date: The date the earning should start applying to the employee. Earning codes are driven by Start and Stop Dates. To have the recurring earning begin on time, use the first day of the pay period as your Start Date.
Stop Date: The date the earning should stop. If the earning is continuous, do not input a Stop Date. Dates are pay period dates, so choose a date within the pay period in which the earning should stop.
Amount and Rate Fields: Input a dollar amount in the Amount field or an hourly rate in the Rate field. You will only use one of these fields.
- Rate: Hourly rate to calculate when hours are associated with the earning.
- Amount: Exact dollar amount that adds to the regular check.
Balance: (optional field) Total amount to be paid over time, then the earning will stop. (Earning setting must be “has a declining balance,” contact your Payroll Support Team if you would like this option selected; the declining balance will apply to all employees.)
