There are occasions where an exception needs to be made to a group pay item for just one employee in that group. For example, one employee may not be eligible for a uniform allowance but conforms to all other standards for the group.
Employee Standard Pay and Group Standard Pays combine to create each employee’s pay during Check Pays for Auto Pays or during Timesheet Entry for other employees.
To counteract the effect of a Group Standard Pay line, enter the same line on the Employee’s Standard Pay but adjust the amount or percentage to give the required result. The combination of the Group Standard Pay line and the Employee Standard Pay line will give a net effect. For example, entering a negative amount on the Employee Standard Pay will reduce or negate completely the effect of the Group Standard Pay line. Entering a postive amount on the Employee Standard Pay will increase the effect of the Group Standard Pay line.
In our example, just enter the uniform allowance on the employee’s standard pay with a negative amount for the whole allowance. As the net effect will be zero, neither the allowance from the group nor the standard pay will print on the payslip.
