Employees are not always paid on regular payroll cycles, and this may happen for many reasons. Here are a few of them:

Ensuring every employee in our system gets paid on time is our top priority. That’s why we validate that all payroll resources have a payday on which banks are open.

Earnings in multiple workplaces

We’re excited to launch support for earnings in multiple workplaces on a single payroll item! This feature will be useful for paying employees who earn wages at multiple locations in a single pay period, such as waiters who work at more than one location of a restaurant chain.

Child support garnishment is a key feature of any robust payroll platform. Today, we're announcing support for compliant child support garnishment calculation across all 50 states.

Today, we're excited to launch support for a new way to create payrolls and their items in one API request. This update will make creating payrolls for non-trivial company sizes dramatically easier and safer. This new structure should look very familiar:

Employees in multiple workplaces

Posted by Ian Zapolsky about a year ago

We’re happy to announce that we now allow for employees to relate to multiple workplaces. Two simple API changes were required to make this happen.

Simplifying employee creation

Posted by Vivek Patel about a year ago

Configuring employee withholdings correctly is critical to accurately calculate pay. However, withholdings are not a topic that developers need to be familiar with to use Check successfully.
