Adding pay rates and assigning US Pay Conditions to your team members in Deputy allows you to automate pay calculations, simplify your payroll, and lets you create costed schedules with visibility of how much you're spending on labor each hour or day.

Deputy contains a library of pre-created Pay Conditions based on common Labor Laws which can be applied to your team members. Note that it is not a comprehensive library of all possible Pay Conditions. If the Pay Condition you need is not found in the library please feel free to submit a suggestion here.

How to Assign Pay Conditions to Team Members

Applying pre-configured Pay Conditions from our pay rate library to your team members works the same way as adding pay rates.

Simply navigate to the People page and click on the team member you would like to add the pay condition to. Click on Employment on the left-hand side and click on Edit.

Scroll down the employee's profile until you reach the Pay details section. Click the Pay Rates drop-down for a list of pre-configured Pay Conditions. You may find it easier to start typing the name of the Pay Condition you are looking for.

Simply enter in the employee's regular rate and it will automatically populate the other fields. Click on View all rates and allowances to expand the list and view all pay rates.

Remember to click Save before you close the window.


How to Export Timesheets with Pay Conditions to your Payroll system

To export timesheets, first ensure they are approved. Then click on Export Timesheets from the Timesheets dropdown.

Select the Timesheets to approve on the left hand side.

When you export using our library, we advise that you match the export code sent from Deputy to the corresponding 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.

Then you are ready to export to your connected payroll system. Click on Export Selected Items.
