Hi there, 

 

Vacation pay is earned by your employee based on the time they've worked. An employee can accrue vacation pay, or get paid out on each pay period depending on the employer. If you've got a salaried employee who is set up to accrue vacation pay, I'd be happy to explain how they can cash in their hours on this pay run. 

 

If you're using Standard Payroll, the process is very simple. Here's what you'll do: 

 

1. Click the Employees tab.

2. Click Run Payroll

3. On the Run Payroll screen, enter 24 hours into the Vacation Pay Hours box. 

4. Next, adjust the salary amount by clicking the salary number. Check off the box to Adjust salary this time only. You'll reduce the employees total hours by 40

5. Click Apply.

6.  Click Preview Payroll

7. Review the pay run information, then click Submit Payroll.

 

If you're using Advanced Payroll Powered by Wagepoint, here's what you'll do: 

 

1. Click the Employees tab. 

2. Click Run Payroll

3. Select your pay group, then click Next.

4. Enter your first and last day of the pay period, as well as the pay date. 

5. Click Process.

6. Enter the hours worked, as well as the Vacation Hours

7. Complete the remaining steps. 

 

That's all there is to it. If you have any other questions about this process, please reach out to our tech support team


Have a great day.
