Setting up a wage program


To create or edit a wage program, first, click 'Admin' from your left-hand menu. Then, click the 'Wage Program' tab, and finally either click 'New Wage Program' to create a new one, or click the wage program you'd like to edit from the list. If editing a wage program, you'll need to click 'Edit program' from the wage program's details page to edit it.

From here, you can enter the following details:

  • Name: The name of your wage program (i.e. Minimum-wage, H2A, etc...)
  • Default?: Whether or not you'd like this to be the default wage program employees are assigned to
  • Minimum Wage: The minimum hourly rate for the wage program (Read more)
  • Rounding Method: Whether you'd like employee hours to be rounded prior to calculating payouts
  • Piecework Break Pay: Whether you'd like piecework break pay to be automatically calculated per a formula or not (Read more)
  • Overtime: Whether you'd like overtime to be automatically calculated per a formula or not (Read more)
  • Doubletime: Whether you’d like double-time to be calculated automatically based on a configurable formula (Read more)
  • Effective Date: The date this minimum wage takes effect
  • Color: Color of the wage program for visual purposes


  • If your 'Rounding Method' is turned on, it will round to the nearest quarter-hour. If the employee has less than 15 minutes, it will round to 15 minutes.

  • Currently, OT does not accrue in chronological order, but rather in the order that Jobs are finalized within a given 'workweek'. I.e. If an Employee works Mon - Fri and the OT limit is reached, but Monday's Job is finalized last, that Job will receive the OT.

  • OT/DT will accumulate on a per Payroll Entity basis. Meaning, if an employee works over multiple Payroll Entities in a given workweek, OT/DT will accrue for each separate entity and will not be accrued across entities.
