For employee’s that get paid out Vacation Pay each pay period you’ll need to set that up in Humi Payroll prior to running payroll. To do that, you’ll need to add an additional wage.
To add an additional wage (Vacation Pay) to the employee’s regular 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 the Vacation Pay. To add the Vacation Pay, click the green plus button toward the right side of your screen
You can now name the compensation “Vacation Pay”
Next, you’ll need to calculate the Vacation Pay amount. If your employee earns Vacation Pay at 4% of salary, then multiply the employee’s hourly wage by 4% ($85.41*.04) = $3.42/hour. That means, for every hour the employee works, they need to be paid their regular wage ($85.41) plus their Vacation Pay ($3.42). Therefore, create the additional wage (the Vacation Pay) at $3.42 and make it per “hour”. Then hit “Save”
Now, in order to process payroll and include an employee’s vacation pay, go to stage 1 of payroll and scroll down to the employee(s) that have Vacation Payments and you’ll see an additional wage box showing the hourly rate (equal to the percentage of vacation pay/hour)
Key in the employee’s total working ours in their Regular Pay wage box and then again in their Vacation Pay wage box
Now when you take payroll into Stage 2, you’ll see a breakdown of earnings for Regular Pay and for Vacation Pay
The employee will also see this broken down on their paystub
Note: You won’t be able to delete the Vacation Pay after it’s been processed on a payroll run. Therefore, if you’d like to delete or change a Vacation Pay, simply create a new salary replacing the old one and then follow the above steps to re-input an updated vacation wage
Also, you won’t be able to choose the start date of the Vacation Pay as the system defaults the start on the day you create it. Therefore, if you create a Vacation Pay before you run payroll but after the pay period end date, then the Vacation Pay won’t show up on that payroll. In this instance, best to calculate the Vacation Pay manually and pay it out under +Other for the pay period and next pay period you have the Vacation Pay show on payroll.
