HR & Payroll: Pre-Process Payrun Warning vs Blocking Errors

Follow

You can pre-process a pay run from the Prepare Payrun menu option. Then, click on the “Details / Prepare” button.

Filter the data to find the pay run you want to pre-process. Filters include Pay Schedule, Regions (if your portal is set up this way), and date range.

Based on your progression in the 3 steps process, you will see a status changing. This way, you can easily keep track of where you left off for each one of them.

After clicking the Preprocess Payrun button, you may encounter the following error types:

Warning Errors: Information that is good to know but not necessarily an issue. Warnings will allow you to keep processing your payroll. Here is a list of items that could generate this type of errors:

  • The shift was left vacant or on the shift board
  • A shift has over 12 hours
  • Ad hoc earning item: TRAV / Travel Expense Reimbursement
  • Schedule Shift is covered by salary.
  • Approved hours are less than 50% of the scheduled ones
  • A shift is over 1 hour than the scheduled time
  • Hourly Rate is high – over $35/hour
  • Hourly Rate is low – Below $5/hour
  • Hourly Rate zero. The shift will not be paid to the employee

Blocking Errors: A blocking error is something critical; it won’t let you proceed until you resolve it​. Here is a list of items that generate this type of error:

  • A shift is not approved
  • The shift does not have a pay rate

Note: When you run your payroll, you can view your employees’ shifts in their home region and external regions as well. 

The benefit: Administrators, your back office, supervisors, and security personnel have more transparency on their payroll for correct processing. 

Example: 

  • Pay run with employees working in a region with sub-regions 
  • Region A has sub-regions A1, A2, A3  
  • User 1 lives in region A 
  • User 1 performs shifts in region A & sub-regions A1, A2, A3 
  • When running payroll for region A, all the performed shifts for User 1 in the regions/sub-regions (A, A1, A2, A3) are calculated 
  • All unapproved shifts for User 1 in sub-regions A1, A2, and A3 will be displayed as an error for the payroll user to resolve (see the following image)  
  • When approving shifts from an external region, the region & site name(s)  where the shifts were performed are displayed. 

When all blocking errors will have been resolved, you will be able to proceed to the next step.
