How to delete a compensation

If you made a mistake or no longer need the compensation that you've set up, you can delete the compensation only if it hasn't been used on a payroll. 

Example of when you can't delete a compensation:

On Jan 1st, I created a compensation for an employee of $50,000 effective on Jan 1st.

On Jan 8th, I run a weekly payroll that covers from Jan 1st to 7th. The employee is paid a gross pay of $961.54 ($50k / 52 weeks).

On Jan 9th,  I learned that the employee is actually entitled to $52,000 or $1000 per week. Since I've already run payroll with the $50,000 amount, I CANNOT delete (or edit) the original compensation.

Instead, on Jan 9th I will have to add a compensation for $52,000 effective on Jan 8th.

On Jan 15th, I run a weekly payroll that covers Jan 8th to 15th. The employee is paid gross pay of $1038.46. (This includes "Retroactive Pay" of $38.46 missed in the previous period.)

How to delete a compensation

If you haven't run a payroll with the compensation, follow these steps to delete it:

  1. In "People," find the employee's profile by typing their name in the search box.
  2. Click on the "Job & Pay" tab in their employee profile and scroll down to the "Compensation History" section.
  3. Click the three dots on the compensation line that you would like to delete and select "Delete" from the dropdown options. Screen_Shot_2022-04-05_at_5.40.15_PM.png
