Can I pay my employees multiple rates?

Absolutely! There are a couple of ways that you can do paying an employee multiple rates. If this is a one-time extra adjustment, you can simply add that information to the pay grid.

  1. When you are entering payroll change the view from SUMMARY to DETAIL (drop-down menu on the upper right side of the pay grid).
  2. Select the employee necessary employee.
  3. Click ADD and choose the desired earnings code for the additional rate. (Note: You can use the same earnings code multiple times).
  4. Enter the hours and rate.
  5. Click SAVE.
  6. You can then change your view from DETAIL back to SUMMARY if you so choose.

If this is a recurring additional rate then it needs to be added at an extra rate to the employee(s) profile.

  1. Click EMPLOYEES on the left-hand side of the screen.
  2. Double click on the necessary employee to get access to their personal information.
  3. Click PAY on the left-hand menu bar.
  4. On the right-hand side of the screen click ADD.
  5. Enter the rate.
  6. All other fields are informational and do not need to be completed unless necessary.
  7. Click SAVE.

Note: Simon Payroll App clients may pay their employees one-rate only.
