You are required to pay your employees the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. However, if an employee’s pay is below the minimum wage rate, then you'll have to make it up by paying the employee the difference. Suppose, the state where the employee works have a minimum wage rate of more than $7.25, then the employee will have to make a minimum wage as of the state.


You can adjust minimum wages while adding an employee. If you choose to adjust it for an existing employee, here’s how:


  1. Go to Directory >> Employee and choose an employee.

  2. Under Compensation Details, click the Edit icon, and check the Adjust minimum wage box.

  3. Click Save.


While running a payroll, if a wage adjustment is required to meet the minimum wage criteria, the employee's Gross Pay will include this adjustment. This adjustment will be reflected in the employee’s pay stub under Employee Earnings.
