Creating a second payroll check

I have a few employees that were shorted 10 overtime hours on last weeks payroll. How do I create a second paycheck in the same payroll period to make that up?

Creating a second payroll check

Start by picking then Unscheduled payroll option, then proceed as normal.

Will changing the hours not affect the original hours?

Hi @sports135.


Thank you for reaching out to the Community.


I'll be happy to explain how you can pay your employees when they have been shortened overtime. 


Just as @Anonymous said, you can create an unscheduled payroll by following the steps here.


This will add to the total hours when you look at reports but won't affect the check that was already created. If you need it all on one check, you'll need to contact support to have a correction made. To do this, click here.


Let me know below if you're able to get that created properly, I'm always here to help.
