When is it required?

Create and process an unscheduled pay run to:

  • Process 'one-off out-of-cycle' pay runs.

  • Adjust a pay period already processed to correct an employee's earnings if they were overpaid or underpaid.

  • Process a negative pay run to include negative wages, taxes, and net pay, to adjust incorrect earnings, super, and taxes.

To process a normal pay period, without any adjustments, create a regular pay run instead.
