PRWIN - Attendance / Substitutes / Leave Days / Tracking Dock Days
See how the Attendance and Substitutes options can be used to track employee leave and pay substitutes without having to re-enter information again and again. Doc days can also be tracked. Taking advantage of these options also gives the use of several reports including the Attendance Report, the Substitute Report, and the Substitute Days Worked Report. This also prints on the employees check stub and keeps them up-to-date on a regular basis. Using these modules is also extremely helpful in gathering information for the ISBE EIS Report.

PRWIN - Verifying a Payroll / Voids / Corrections
There are some basic checks and balances that can be done using the Validation Report to make sure a payroll is calculating properly. See how to find the source of a problem and make the necessary changes before printing checks. When it is determined that a check must be voided it is a simple task and takes no time at all.

Instead the check must be corrected and the differences are handled in accounting. Depending on the circumstances correcting a check can be challenging, but there are basic principals that this class will teach you to follow.
