Can I do an Employee pay check that was for back pay?

Hi there, rocsinc.



I have just the clarification that you're looking for.


I'd like to take a moment and thank jody125 for joining the thread and sharing this amazing insight. For the benefit of all, allow me to provide you the step-by-step process on how to create the paycheck for the back pay:

  1. Select Workers in the left navigation menu.
  2. Click Run payroll.
  3. Choose the Pay schedule for this employee.
  4. Select the employee you want to pay, and then click Create another check.
  5. Enter the necessary details for the back pay.
  6. Confirm the Pay period and Pay date.
  7. Click Preview Payroll, and then Submit payroll.
  8. Select Finish payroll.

I'm also including our guide on how to create unscheduled payroll checks for additional insight about this that you can use for future reference.


I hope this response finds you with a smile today. Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you, I want to make sure you're taken care of. Thanks for reaching out, wishing you and your business the best.
