Some companies have salaried employees who also work additional hours. For example, an employee might make a salary of $800 per week, but if they punch in to a time clock, those extra hours would be paid separately at $25 per hour. To set up a scenario like this in Fingercheck, you can set scheduled earnings for the employee and make them an "hourly" employee.

How to allow a salaried employee to be paid hourly

  1. Log in to Fingercheck as an Administrator.

  2. Click the EMPLOYEES tab, and click the employee's name or number to open their profile.

  3. Set up a scheduled earning.

    1. Go to Payroll > Earnings.

    2. Click Add.

      The Add Employee Earning pop-up window appears.

    3. From the Earning Type drop-down list, select SA - Salary.

    4. Enter the Amount to be paid for each pay check.

    5. Select the Rate Code.

    6. Click Save.

  4. Make the employee an hourly employee.

    1. Go to Personal > Position & Rates.

    2. Click the Edit icon (pencil) for the Pay Information section to enable editing.

    3. From the Pay Type drop-down list, select Hourly if it's not already selected.

    4. To ensure that the employee is paid their salary amount even if they do not punch in that week, enter a miniscule number (such as .0001) in the Automatic Paid Hours field.

      This ensures that the scheduled earning (step 3 above) is still paid. It's small enough not to trigger the hourly wage, but will trigger the scheduled earning.

    5. Click Save.
