Getting Started

Adding pay rates and assigning US Pay Conditions allows Deputy to automate pay calculations to simplify your payroll, and lets you create costed rosters 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 employees.

In this guide you'll learn about

We currently export Pay Conditions to the following payroll systems:

Please note that you can only export California Labor Laws, FLSA, and Standard Rates to Gusto.

How to Apply Pay Conditions to Employees

Applying Pay Conditions 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 regular rate and it will automatically populate the other fields.

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

Exporting Rates

When you export using our library, we advised 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.
