Fingercheck supports two pay types for employees.
Hourly: Also called non-exempt. Hourly employees are paid by the hours worked. The Fair Labor Standards Act (a federal law that sets minimum wage and overtime requirements) gives protections to hourly workers.
Salary: Also called exempt. Salaried employees are paid a set wage, which is usually based on an annual figure. These employees are generally not paid for extra hours they work.
You may have a salaried employee who clocks in so that you can stay apprised of hours worked, but the employee is still paid a fixed wage.
Note: In Fingercheck, by default, you cannot pay a salaried employee an hourly wage for extra hours worked (except by special configuration). Reach out to Fingercheck Support if you need assistance with setting this up.

How often the employee is paid. The options are:
The tax type. The options are:
Automatic Paid Hours
The number of hours that are automatically paid each pay period (regardless of number of hours worked).
Excluded Hours from Payroll
Select this option if the hours that the employee works will not be transferred to payroll. Additionally, expense request reimbursements will not go to payroll either.
If you still want to record the pay information for employees like unpaid interns or staff members of temp agencies who receive payment from outside organizations, you can use this option.
Excluded Salary from Payroll
Select this option if the employee's salary should not be automatically processed with payroll.
You might use this option for employees such as unpaid interns or temp agency employees who are being paid by outside agencies, but you still want to record their pay information.
Select this option if you want to offset income taxes and increase the gross pay to ensure the employee makes the wage you agreed upon.
For example, if you agreed to pay an employee $20 per hour, they would make $800 in a 40-hour week before taxes. If you select Auto Gross Up, Fingercheck calculates the taxes and adds them to the gross so that the employee would receive a net pay of $800.
A Workers' Comp code. (Fingercheck sets this up for you.) For more information, see How to Assign Workers Comp Class Codes to Employees.

Excluded From Workers' Comp
Select this option if you want to exclude the employee's pay from workers comp.
