Weekly Pay

Post by joy123 »

Hello Folks,

New to Timetrex, great software so far.

We are testing at the moment, we have 3 type of employee.

1. pay by hours - hours determine by punch in/out
2. Pay weekly wages - no punch in/out required.
3. pay by sales - each sale worth 5 euro , so if they do 20 sale a week they receive 5*20 euro

I was accomplish to do number 1.

Thought number 2 would be easy, but its turn out not as simple as i thought, its always shows 0 payment. I have set weekly wages with weekly payment.

number 3 Is it possible?

To pay employees a fixed salary, they still must have at least 1 minute of time recorded on their timesheet.

To pay by pay sales (commission or piece work), there are multiple methods, one method is to simply enter a pay stub amendment (Payroll -> Pay Stub Amendments) for whatever amount you want to pay them.

I was wondering if its possible to have a custom unit and price for each unit. so I could use API to set unit which would show up in pay stab every week, so their will be no manual amendment.

Your screenshot shows $0/hr, so there aren't any earnings to generate a pay stub for. So either that employees wage record is wrong, or you need to recalculate the timesheet so the wage takes effect retroactively.

Regarding the piece rate/commission, there isn't a way to create custom units, but you can use any rate you want for "hours". So for example if you set $1/hr you could enter 100 hrs of absence time labeled "Commission" to pay the employee $100. Its still manual entry of course though.

Thanks, I found the problem was in "pay formula". After set to pay+premium, I can see hourly rate is ok. For hours it's calculated 4*16.25.

That's get me into the issue where I selected employee will not required punch in/out. I thought this employee will not need to punch in to get 650 weekly wages. Is there any way to do that?

If you want to pay an employee without them having to punch in/out, you can use Pay Stub Amendments, or Tax/Deductions instead.

One more question about Wages:

Sales Department, all our employees paid by hours or commission, whichever greater.

So employee A:
Monday, Tuesday shift, hourly wages is 200 euro/shift, but his commission calculated 250/shift, we pay him 250*2=500
Wednesday- Friday, hourly wages is 200/shift and commission calculated 100/shift. We pay him 200*3=600 euro.

Is there any policy I can use to decide which one is greater so wages can be calculated based on that policy? Thanks in advance.

Functionality such as that would get into custom formulas which is only available in paid editions of TimeTrex.
