You can create a special check for the missed wages or include them on the next paycheck (if that's OK with your employee.) You can use using really any wage item for this, but probably the overtime item you usually use.
Either on a special check or a regular paycheck, edit the details from the create paycheck workflow and then add a special/additional line item on the earnings table using the overtime item you usually use. Change the rate to .75 and enter the number of OT hours that were paid at the wrong rate.
If you end up adding this missed pay to the next payroll, and there is OT for that payroll at the full OT rate, then you'll use the OT item twice on the check at different rates. When you do this, QB will automatically list the OT item on the pay stub twice.
