There may be times when you need to increase an employee pay rate. For example, they might have earned a pay raise. Or, if the minimum wage goes up in your state or a state where your employees work, you'll want to make sure your employees are being paid properly.

During the payroll process, Fingercheck gives you a warning during Step 5 (Preview Payroll) if an employee is being paid under the minimum wage rate. To learn more about setting tax work locations for your employees, see How to Add a Tax Work Location for Remote Employees.

If the minimum wage increases in a state where your employees work, you can update each employee's pay rate individually (as described below), or you can update multiple employee profiles through an import file. For more information, see How to Import Data into Fingercheck.
