Payroll Define Status (Employer Tab) - This Feature is under development...

The following step is optional - This step is not required to perform the payroll procedure. If the program's default statuses' suit your needs, or if you do not plan to use the HR feature, then you can skip this screen.

This screen is used to define custom employee Status indicators, over and above eNETEmployer's pre-defined Statuses. A custom status is useful in cases where the program's pre-defined status name does not adequately represent the employee's current state of employment. For example, if two employees are set to "On Leave" status for different reasons, you can create a custom status for each individual reason (e.g. Military Leave, Parental Leave, Personal Emergency Leave, Family Medical Leave).

Each status that you define will act as an "alias" to the one of the program's six pre-defined status indicators: Active, On Leave, Terminated, Last Pay, Special, and Delete. For example, if an employee is taking Compassionate Care leave, you could create a custom leave entitled "Compassionate Care", and then you would assign it to the program's "On Leave" status so that the employee would not be included in any subsequent pay calculations.

Similarly, if you needed to layoff a group of employees due to a plant closure and wish to indicate the reason for their "Terminated" status, you could create a custom leave entitled "Permanent Layoff", and then you would assign it to the program's "Terminated" status. In this case, the employees would not be included in any subsequent pay calculations (because they are terminated), and the records would more clearly indicate the reason for the terminations (Plant Closure).

Common Buttons

Visit the Button Descriptions help page to view detailed descriptions of each button that appears on your screen (whether in the Button Bar at the top of the table, or in the table itself). Note: If a button's text appears in a Grey color, either the command is not applicable to the current screen, or its function has already been applied (e.g. some items can only be added once, therefore the New button will be unavailable on certain screens after it is used).

Sample command buttons

The following section displays help for the various cells and columns shown in the main table on this screen. If you see a help description on this page for a column that does not appear on your screen, you can add the additional column to your view by using the Customize option under the Views button (located at the left side of the screen just above the main table). Refer to the Customize View help page for more help on this feature.


Use this cell to specify how the custom status should be treated, in terms of any subsequent payroll calculations. For example, if you create a custom status entitled "Personal Leave", you would apply it to the "On Leave" status so that the employee would not be included in any subsequent pay calculations. Custom statuses can be applied the following actions:


Use this cell to enter a brief description for the custom status. This description is for reference purposes only and will not appear elsewhere in the program or on any reports.


Use this cell to enter a name for the custom status. This name will appear in various program screens when referring to each status.
