Termination pay

Good day,

I am trying to do a final pay for an employee, we have a standard 38 hours per week, but employee has worked less hours. When I put in hours it changes the payment so the amount is still the amount for the week, how do I get around this as it affects the leave payment to?

    It sounds like you’re using a Salary-based Payroll Item. You need to use a Holiday Hourly one instead.

    Note: Under STP2, leave payouts on termination are reported separately so you need to have a separate Payroll Item for paying out Leave (to what you would use when an employee just takes leave but is still employed with you) ☺️
