Patriot payroll customers who are required to comply with paid leave requirements of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) can now pay employees for time off with special hour types. To make it easy for our customers, these hour types are pre-set to do the following:
- Automatically calculate the proper rate of pay, whether it be 100% or ⅔ of regular pay
- Calculate and offset the employer payroll tax credits
- Automatically track the available hours and balance for each employee
For more details, see the help article Paying Employee Paid Leave in Patriot Software Due to COVID-19.
We have also added a link to the top of our navigation menu in the software for quick access to COVID-19 resources for employers.
