How do I backtrack a week of sick leave payroll to indicate Families First after the fact? I paid my staff out of my savings & didn't know how to indicate properly.

Hey there, glassdoorsalon-c. Welcome to the Community! I understand it's not easy to keep up with the changes and how all of this should be entered into your books. I'd like to help you with this.
 

The first step is to determine the benefit and hourly rate for each employee. Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), there's three types of paid leave:

  • National Paid Leave Employee: The employee is sick and under quarantine with COVID-19.
  • National Paid Leave Family: They're taking care of a family member who's sick or impacted.
  • National Paid Leave FMLA: They have taken leave under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to care for children under the age of 18, whose school or child care is closed.
  • National Paid Leave - Health Credits: This is for if you're contributing to a staff member's health insurance during the time they're being paid under FFCRA provisions. You'll receive a credit applied to your federal tax liability for this.


For the hourly rate, you'll want to review the Regular Rate of Pay Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to know how to determine the correct rates. In most cases, you'll pay your employees the same amount they've received over the last six months.

For additional steps on setting up the liability and expense accounts, as well as payroll and tax items, you can follow the steps in this article: Set up and track time off in payroll

I'll be here to help with any questions you have. Have a great day.

This doesn't answer how to go back to last week before the update to QB was released with the insturctions on how to correctly log everything - we are in the same boat I have have an employee I need to adjust for last week and we run weekly payroll and payroll taxes....

Hey there, NicholePC.

 

Thank you for taking the time to come to the QuickBooks community and voice your concerns. Rest assured, we're here to help. Once you've set up your employees under the FFCRA per these instructions, you'll need to edit your prior payroll. How you do that depends on several things. If it was or wasn't already submitted to intuit, and if it's before or after the pay date. 

For detailed steps on what you need to do regarding your previous payroll, check out this link on how to Edit a payroll paycheck. 

 

I also recommend keeping an eye on these links as they have our most up-to-date information regarding the FFCRA.
