Recording Employee Time in Payroll Related to Emergency Sick Leave

Recording Employee Time in Payroll Related to Emergency Sick Leave

To record employee time and wages to a Pay Code setup for the Emergency Paid Leave Act of 2020, there is no real difference compared to entering time as you normally do.  The only difference may be if you created a GL Activity to track wages and benefits related to this leave.  This may be new to you and there is an additional piece of information that needs to be entered.  Follow these steps:
  1. From your Payroll Checklist, click on the step where you enter employee time.  This will most likely take you to Payroll | Employees | Enter Payroll Checks.
  2. Enter the EmployeePay codeGL account (if necessary), GL activity, and Hours.  
  3. Do this for every employee that needs their time coded to a GL Activity.
When you update the General Ledger, this employee's wages will be updated to both the GL Account used for that invoice along with the GL Activity.  
PLEASE NOTE: The employee's benefits will also be allocated to this GL Activity.  For example, if a person spent 20% of their time on this GL Activity, 20% of their benefits will also be recorded to this Activity automatically.
