  4. [Optional] Assign an external ID to the category.
  5. Hide from payslips - Select this option if you do not wish to allow employees to see the value of this employee liability within a pay run on their payslip.
  6. Show total payments in payslips - Select this option if you wish to allow employees to see their total cumulative payments for this liability category on their payslip.
  7. Include in shift cost calculations - Using pay condition rule sets, employer liabilities can optionally be included in shift costing calculations. Select this option if this liability should form part of the cost of a shift.
