Pay Schedules are used to set up pay runs. The pay schedule's settings are used for each pay run to calculate what to pay employees.

There is no limit to the number of pay schedules. You can create and configure for any combination of pay frequencies. You can have multiple Monthly, Weekly & Twice per month pay schedules.

Pay Schedule is a combination of two pieces of info: your pay period & your pay date. The pay period time frame during which your employee worked. The pay date is the day they receive their wages for the pay period.

Using the Deskera People+, you can add multiple pay schedules for your employees at any time, before processing the payroll.
