Re: How do I change Sick Pay accrual per hour that was entered incorrectly

Thanks for reaching out to the Community, @PVICHARELLO.

 

I can help walk you through correcting a sick pay accrual in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).

 

This can be done by going to your employee's profile. Here's how:

 

1. Go to Employees menu at the top, then Employee Center.
2. Double-click the employee's name to edit information.
3. Go to the Payroll info tab, then click Sick/Vacation.
4. Enter the necessary changes on the Sick section, then OK.

That should do it. Please let me know how it goes in the comment section. I'm only a few clicks away if you have any additional questions. Have a wonderful weekend!

We decided to start accruing sick time for our employees but want to use their hours since January 1 of this year. Is that possible? I hope that makes since!

Hi there, Leighanne!

 

Yes, it's possible to use your employee's hours since January 1. You'll just have to enter their hours since that month and their accrual in the Sick Pay setup. Then, the total available hours will be used in their paychecks going forward.

  1. From the Employees menu, select Employee Center.
  2. Double click the name of the employee in concern.
  3. Go to Payroll Info.
  4. Click the Sick/Vacation button.
  5. In the SICK (PRINT AS: SICK TIME) section:
    a. Set the Year begins on to January, enter the Day
    b. Set the Begin accruing sick time on to 01/01/2019.
    c. Enter other details like available hours since January, Hours used, Accruing period, etc.

You can also check out the article about setting up and paying sick and vacation time.

 

After the setup, you can create Sick Pay payroll item and use it when you pay your employees using his available sick pay hours.

  1. From the Lists menu, choose Payroll Item List.
  2. Right-click anywhere and select New.
  3. Choose EZ Setup and click Next.
  4. Select Paid Time Off.
  5. Select Paid Sick time off and Next.
  6. Click Finish.

When you create a paycheck for the employee, add the sick pay item in the Earnings section of the paycheck detail. Then, enter the number of hours you want to use in the Hours field.

 

Please let me know if you have other questions.
