An off-cycle payroll is run for employees who have been skipped in the regular payroll or have joined in the middle of a pay period. To run this payroll, you don’t need any specific date or pay schedule. The tax rate is calculated based on W-4 withholdings or a flat supplemental rate. 

You can integrate the employee’s existing time clock entries with payroll, and choose to make payments by check or direct deposit.
