What is a correction?
A correction is a payment or deduction that is added to an employee’s pay details after you do one of the following;
- Edit a previous pay run.
- Record absences in the current pay run, but the absence dates belong to the previous pay run.
- Add a pension when the staging date is in an already processed pay run .
Payroll assumes that the employee has already been paid for every completed pay run. This is why it applies the necessary pay correction in the current pay run.
