I’ve only had hourly payroll

unsure how to do leave without pay for a salaried employee ?

I’m assuming their weekly pay amount will be reduced?

    Why do anything, no pay nothing to process!

    Because she worked part of the week

    She had few hours off sick but she has no entitlements left so it’s leave without pay ?

    So you pay her for the hours she worked only

    but when she's salaried its always paying her the same amount

    its not an hourly rate that I just pay for 30 hours, rather than the 40 she should have worked

    Could you not add an hourly pay item to the pay and this time pay by hour - divide weekly salary by 40 to get the rate. And delete the salary line from this pay

    I guess so, just didnt really think that would be the "best/proper" way to do it

    I don’t know any other way, if someone hasn’t got enough leave I just don’t pay it

    You will need to use the Hourly Payroll Items to do this as - like you've discovered - a Salary will pay/apportion to equal the same fixed amount.

    I only ever use Salary Payroll Items for an employee who always receives the same pay, regardless of hours worked (eg a director). It sounds like this employee is actually hours-based, in which case, it would be better to use Hourly Payroll Items as standard 😬
