To use the Workers’ Compensation feature, you will need to enable the Preference under the Payroll options in the main preferences section. Once enabled, you can then setup your Workers’ Compensation to work in your company database.
- Setup the Workers’ Compensation Codes (Employees|Lists|Workers’ Compensation Code List).
- Edit the Employee Payroll Items Codes (Employees|Employee List|right click and choose Employee Payroll Items)and assign the appropriate Worker’s Compensation Code to the Employee as the Default. This will ensure that a Workers’ Compensation Code is assigned to all Time Sheet entries.
- Enter your Employee’s Time Sheet Hours Codes (Employees|Timesheets/Time Tracking). Notice: The Employee’s default WC Code is populated on the Time Sheet line entries. You can change this selection if need be in the drop down.
- After processing your payroll, you can then run reports that will show you information that is tied to Workers’ Compensation. These reports can be viewed by going to Reports|Payroll|Workers’ Compensation.
