How to process a WorkCover payment?

When an employee is to be paid WorkCover we have a number of options in setting this up within Wagemaster.

  • We can set it up within the award so that it applies to all employees linked to the award.
  • We can set it up within the employee file so that it applies to that employee only.
  • We can modify it at Wages to suit the particular circumstance.

STEP 1
Processing a WorkCover payment.

When an employee is to be paid WorkCover we have a number of options in setting this up within Wagemaster.

1. We can set it up within the award so that it applies to all employees linked to the award.
2. We can set it up within the employee file so that it applies to that employee only.
3. We can modify it at wages to suit the particular circumstance.

We can also set it up within the HR part of the program so that we have recorded details of the case for future reference and concise reporting and recording.

  1. Setting up WorkCover within the employee’s award.

    Here we can set up the various percentages as required. This would then flow through to the employee wages screen if a WorkCover claim needed processing.

  2. Setting it up within the employee file.

    Here we can either choose to pay it according to the award setup or set it up individually to override the award setup. This may be the case if the employee crosses over the first threshold and goes to a reduced payment % after a period of time.

  3. Processing at Wages.
    Select the employee at the Wages screen, clear the timesheet. Select next to the wage adjustments screen and click on WorkCover. Click on the Add Icon. The WorkCover wizard will appear which we work through to process the payment.

    Here we select the days which the employee is to be paid WorkCover. If it is one day or part of a day, select the same from and to dates. Enter the number of hours in the hours box.

    Input the dollar amount of the payment against the relevant line. Click Next and then Finish.

    You can now report on the WorkCover component of the wages by going to Reports, WorkCover & Current Pay Period to see the figures relating to this payment.

    STEP 2
    Now we can setup the claim within the Employee file. Go to Employee and select the relevant employee file. Go to Organization and OH&S. Click on Add;
