Exporting Custom Award Rates

Our Custom Awards Library now exports to Gusto. We currently export the following awards:

  • California Labor Laws
  • SLSA

To do this, simply apply these award rates to your employees. To learn how to do this, click here.

Please note that if you have changed any employee rates, that you will need to unapprove and reapprove and relevant timesheets.

Now click 'Group by Pay Rate'. The export code must exactly match the earning type/pay rate title in Gusto.

The export codes can be one of the following (but not limited to):

  • REGULAR - For Regular rates
  • DOUBLE - For any Double-Time pay rates
  • OVERTIME - For any Overtime pay rates
  • MEAL BREAK - For any breaks
  • [Any code] - To match the job role in Gusto

When exporting your employees, in the dialog box, select 'Utilise a Custom Award from Deputy's Award Library' under the 'Export Rule' option.

You can also still export via the previous method:

Employee Matching

Gusto's export matches the employee's name in Deputy. Please make sure that the names match between the two. The matching is case-sensitive.

Please note that you cannot export contractors to Gusto.

Matching Job Codes to Deputy Area Export Codes

To ensure a successful export, you will need to make sure the job code within Gusto matches the employee's Area Export Code within Deputy. You can match the Gusto job code to Deputy, or vice versa, but preference is given to the Area Export Code in Deputy. You will need to extract the matching job ID for each area. If none are found, use the first one for the employee.
