Many companies compensate their employees with a guaranteed base salary plus an hourly rate for any additional hours worked. For example, a full-time employee may receive a weekly salary of $1000 plus an hourly rate of $20 for every hour worked beyond the standard 40-hour workweek.
Some companies, on the other hand, offer a base rate plus an hourly rate for all hours worked, including the standard 40-hour workweek. For instance, an employee might receive a weekly base rate of $800 plus an additional $10 per hour for all hours worked, resulting in a weekly paycheck that reflects their total hours worked.
These examples are commonly used in industries such as retail, hospitality, and healthcare.

To ensure that the employee is paid their salary amount even if they do not punch in that week, enter a minuscule number (such as.0001) in the Automatic Paid Hours field.
This ensures that the scheduled earnings (step 3 above) are still paid. It's small enough not to trigger the hourly wage but will trigger the scheduled earnings.
