On Humi Payroll, you have two possible ways of making a change to a salary:
- Editing A current Salary
- Adding an additional concurrent wage to the employee’s existing wage
- To edit a current salary, go to: People > Employee’s name > Compensation
Then, select the Green Plus button at the upper right corner of the screen
You will be prompted to create/edit a new salary, replacing the older one
You can now rename the employee’s Job Title (or leave it as is)
Next, set the Hire Date. The Hire Date is the effective date of the new salary. Make sure to set this date either before or within the upcoming pay period.
Note: If you make the Hire Date (effective date) in the middle of a pay period the system will NOT prorate the salary. Instead, the employee’s salary will be shown as editable in payroll and you WILL be required to manually adjust the salary to the correct prorated amount.
Alternatively, if you set the Hire Date (effective date) to the first day of the pay period, you should not have to make any adjustments as the system will account for a full pay period on the new salary. However, it is strongly encouraged to double check payroll after a salary change to make sure it’s set correctly. If it's not, manually adjust the pay for the current pay period and check back on the following pay period to make sure it’s set correctly.
Pro tip: If an employee has two salaries set on the same Hire Date (effective date) the system will default to use the first salary set at that date and disregard the latter one. Therefore, be sure to set your new salary to at least one day later than the first one and adjust the employee’s pay accordingly under payroll, using editable salaries.
Lastly, you can name the compensation, input the payment amount and select either per “year” or per “hour” under the drop down and hit “save”
2. To add an additional wage to the employee’s existing wage, go to: People > Employee’s name > Compensation
Then, select the blue “Edit Info” button inside the compensation box
You will now be taken inside of the compensation box where you can add an additional wage. To add an additional wage, click the green plus button toward the right side of your screen
You can now create a name for the compensation, choose the payment amount, select per “hour” or “year” and hit “save”
Note: You won’t be able to delete an additional wage after that wage has been processed on a payroll run. Therefore, if you’d like to delete an additional wage, simply create a new salary replacing the old one (as shown in (1.) above).
Also, you won’t be able to choose the start date of the additional wage as the system defaults the start to the day you create it. Therefore, if you create an additional wage before you run payroll but after the pay period end date, then the additional wage won’t show up on that payroll. In this instance, best to calculate the additional wage and pay it out under +Other for the pay period and next pay period you have the additional wage show on payroll.
