Getting Started

Adding pay rates and applying Awards (Au) to your employees allows Deputy to automate pay calculations, and lets you create costed rosters so you know exactly how much you're spending on labour each hour or day.

Deputy contains a pre-created library of Fair Work Awards that you can apply to your employees.

This guide contains a summary of supported Awards, and covers how to apply Awards your employees and export them to your payroll system.

You can currently export our Awards to the following payroll systems:

How to Apply Awards to Employees

Applying awards to your employees works the same way as adding pay rates. Simply navigate to the People page and click 'Options' on the employee you would like to add the award to. In the drop-down box, click 'Edit'.

Scroll down the employee's profile until you reach the 'Pay Rates' section. Click the Pay Rates drop-down for a full list of award rates.

Simply enter in the employee's ordinary rate and it will automatically populate the other fields.

Remember to click 'Save' at the bottom to apply the rates to the employee.

Exporting Library Rates

When you export using our awards library, it is advised that you match the export code sent from Deputy to the matching pay item in the target payroll system ( ADP Run, Gusto, MYOB AR, MYOB, Xero). This allows you to re-use any pay items within your payroll system, avoiding any duplicate items.

Please remember to click 'Save' when making any changes to the Export Code.
