Hi everyone, and thanks for the answers I have received previously.
Moving to QB from OneWrite as of 1-1-10. Two payroll related questions
that I have not discovered the answers to in my experimentation:
1: Can you globally change a wage rate for all employees? I.e. if a
particular 'job task' is worth $X per hour and many employees perform
that function, can you change that rate for all employees at once?
(Another example would be COLA adjustments to mandated minimum wages as
they go into effect)
2: We have employees who receive a 'base' hourly rate, plus optional
extra hourly increments for proficiency at various tasks. Payment of the
extra hourly amounts depends on satisfactory completion of the
associated tasks, so sometimes these extra wages are not paid, on an
employee by employee basis.
In the past we have set up each of these 'proficiency increments' as an
hourly wage item, and shown them on all reports, check, etc. This works
fine except that when the end of the period comes around we may have
employees showing 120 hours of work in a week, due to receiving base
wages plus the hourly increments. This is no big deal, but if there's a
way for QB to not report the duplicated hours that would be nice, so if
the UI or industrial accident people come to take a look the base hours
are correct and the other hours are not there.
Thanks in advance
