To help with cash flow at this time we've asked one employee to take a 30% reduced salary, and another employee is taking leave without pay (both at this stage for the month of April, will review next month). For the reduced salary, can I just adjust the rate of pay? How do I record leave without pay? Thanks in advance for your advice.
To record the reduced salary, you can either a) manually adjust the rate of pay or b) create a new pay category to record this under in case you need to differentiate them in the future. To create a new pay category:
Select the Employees tab
Select PayrollSettings, then Pay Categories
Select Add, and create your new category to your specification, then Save. When paying the employee in a payrun, you can then select this pay category from the dropdown menu and enter the adjusted rate.
This article will take you through detailed steps on managing and recording Leave without Pay. Once you have created the category, you can note the leave taken in the payrun by selecting the employee's name, Actions and Take Leave, then select the category.
