Salary Pay is processed within the EBMS system through a timecard similar to hourly pay and piecework pay. A timecard MUST be created so a paycheck is issued.
The number of hours entered into the timecard of a salaried employee does not change the employee’s pay. The ratio of hours entered into the timecard does divide the salary costs between work codes if different codes are used. For example, if 20 hours are entered under work code SALES and 20 hours are entered under OFFICE, then half of the employee’s salary costs are posted under the sales work code and half to the office work code. This allows the manager to post the employee’s salary to the correct work code and general ledger account.
The user can enter the average or committed average hours per pay period rather than the actual hours worked if the employee does not track the actual hours worked. The number of hours has not affect on the total salary for the employee. The salaried employee’s timecard can be convenient copied if the hours, work codes, and pay types are identical each pay period. Review the Processing Payroll > Open New Pay Period section for details on copying timecards from one pay period to the next.
