Different Pay rates in Payroll based on different tasks.

This question is answered

Does anyone know how to setup different pay rates using SL Payroll without the Project Controller module?  e.g Labor Class or something like this.  It appears that you would need the Project Controller Module to accommodate this task.  The client wants to pay employees differently based on the tasks they are working on and actually show this information on the employee pay stub.  For example, working at this location, they get $15 per hour and at another location $17 per hour and show the two different rates on the same pay stub.  Thank you.

  • The hourly rate doesn't print on the check at all. However the Earnings description does print along with hours.  So you could possibly set up different earnings IDs for each task. Then enter hours as needed for each ID.  The Earnings Description would show on the check stub with the hours for that earnings and total earnings amt.  So not quite what you want.

  • Thank you for the help.  

  • The Advanced Payroll module handles this type of requirement.  Handles scenarios like unions, labor classes, shift differentials, etc.
