Set employee hourly or salary cost from the Employee Settings
In order to accurately calculate the estimated payroll cost each week it is important that all of your active employees within the system have a set employee cost.
Salary Employee Cost and Estimated Payroll
Salaried employees will have their costs split among any stores they are assigned and scheduled.
Example: An employee with a salary that breaks down to $1000 a week is scheduled to spend 60% of their hours at Store A, and 40% of their hours at Store B. $600 will be added to the estimated payroll at Store A, and $400 to the estimated payroll at Store B.
Setting the Hourly or Salary Cost of an Employee
To configure the cost of an employee open the Settings menu and select Employees.
Then click on the Update icon next to the employee whose cost you wish to set.
From the Employee Settings menu click on the Costs tab.
Here you will be presented with the employee's costs. To update the cost click on the Update icon to the left of the cost row.
Change the settings as you see fit. You have the choice of setting the employee as a Salary or Hourly employee, as well as that rate. For salary make sure this is the yearly amount.
Adding Benefits Cost of an Employee
If your store offers employee benefits it is important to factor these in while running the Payroll Estimates for the month. The first step is to ensure that the benefit has been enable for the employee. Click on the Benefits tab from within the employee settings menu.
Here you will be given the option to enable any benefits that you have added to your company profile. If you don't see benefits here and need to apply them, you will need to Add Benefits. Make sure any benefits you wish to apply are assigned.
Click on the Costs tab once again and this time you will be presented with an entry for the Benefits cost. Click on the Update icon to the left of the benefit you wish to set.
Then enter the yearly cost of the benefit and click the Save icon.
You will then see that the Employee cost now has an updated Effective Hourly Rate. This is the value the system will use when calculating the payroll estimates within the system.
