Entering and Updating Minimum and Tipped Wage Rules

It is simple to apply a new minimum wage, for both Regular and  Tipped wages, with a single entry.

From the Gearwheel Menu go to  Wage Settings. 

(if you do not see this option, seek assistance of a Full Admin)


FIRST STEP **Critical** Confirm that all Tipped Wages are properly designated, as shown below. (Any wage that is below the Minimum Wage, because it is augmented with tips, known as a "Tipped Wage" must be designated as such). If you are RAISING minimum wage, this confirmation applies to the EXISTING minimum wage, not the pending increase. 

  1. Press Show Wage Report  - showing ALL schedules
  2. Verify that all Tipped Wages are "Checked"

Or "bulk-check" Tipped Wages with the tool above the wage Report

Second Step: Entering  Minimum Wage Rules

  1. Using the Wage Settings Tool, select Minimum Wage Settings from the tool dropdown list (see arrow below). Select schedules, enter start date, minimum wage, and max tip credit. Press Create Rule
  2. Review changes carefully before confirming with the Proceed with Changes button

Notes:

  • Regular Wage changes are shown in Orange, in the Reg Wage column
  • Tipped Wage changes are shown in Blue, in the Tipped Wage column
  • If any Tipped Wages are mistakenly shown as Regular Wages (in orange), check the "Make Tipped" checkbox, indicated below.

All wages will be updated, and future wages will auto-populate wage rules. 

NOTE: Spread Penalty Rates must be increased in General Settings > Wage Settings
