You can use payroll schedules to group together employees in whichever way makes the most sense for you to effectively run your payroll and your business. However, all employees grouped in the same payroll schedule must have the same same pay frequency (for example, weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, and so on).
In other words, you can set up multiple payroll schedules for the same pay frequency. For example, even if you're paying all your employees weekly, you could set up separate payroll schedules to group together:
Salaried employees and hourly employees.
Employees who are paid via Direct Deposit and those who are paid by regular check.
Employees by location or department, class, or job.
Note: You can set up a maximum of 200 payroll schedules.
