Whether it's a pay rise or a pay cut, it's easy to update an employee's details in MYOB Essentials. The same process is used for hourly based and salaried employees.
Also, a pay rise might also mean the employee is owed back pay.
OK, let's step you through it:
You can change the employee's Status in their employee record (Payroll menu > Employees > click the employee's name > Employee details tab > Status).
If the employee has unpaid leave which needs to be paid out, see Processing a final pay. There may be rules around the payment of unused leave, so check with your accounting advisor if unsure.
You can then update the employee's payroll details to match their new working arrangement. See Enter an employee's pay details for help.
Check the rules with an expert
If you're not sure what an employee is entitled to under their new arrangement, start with the Employment New Zealand website.
You'll also find lots of experts on our community forum who are happy to provide advice on your situation.
