Payday Filing - File not being created for New Employee

Hi

 

I have just entered a payrun for our client, for the fortnight 23/09/2019 to 04/10/2019.

 

There was a new employee that started on 05/09/2019 but had not been paid yet.  They only gave me his details for this payrun.  However, when I process the payroll and create the EI files, it does not pick up that there is a new employee, so I cannot create the New Employee file.

 

Does his start date have to be in the current pay period?

The answer to my question is YES.  The start date has to be in the same pay period.

Hi @Jacqui_M 

But you could go back and re-create the EI return/new employee form for the period that included his start date.

Hi Jennie

 

I did try that but it didn't work.  I guess becase there was no pay for him in that period?

 

Cheers
