Will an employee still get paid if they are onboarded after the payroll cutoff?

It depends. At Remote, we have a payroll cutoff for onboarding that happens on the 10th of every month. The payroll cutoff affects an employee’s onboarding and the payout of incentives and expenses.

For Monthly Payroll

With an employee’s onboarding in countries where we run a monthly payroll, the payroll cutoff means that if we fully onboard an employee by the 10th of the month, this guarantees that they will get paid at the end of that month. An employee is fully onboarded when they have signed their employment agreement and we have registered them with the authorities and enrolled them in payroll.

For employees who miss this cutoff date, we have a solution for this. With the introduction off-cycle payments, employees who are onboarded between the 11th-25th of the month, we’re able to pay them by the 10th of the following month (rather than having them wait till the end of the month).

Examples:

  • Sharon is to start on November 21st, and she is fully onboarded on November 6th. We will pay her in the regular cycle, which is the end of the month. She will receive her first salary by the end of November.
  • Sharon is to start on November 21st, and she is fully onboarded on November 15th. Here, the regular payroll cutoff (10th of the month) has been missed and we will instead enroll her in an off cycle payroll run at no extra charge. She will receive her first salary by the December 10th instead of waiting till the end of December.
  • Sharon is to start on November 21st, and she is fully onboarded on November 29th. We cannot enroll her in an off cycle payroll run. She will receive her first salary at the end of December.

For countries where we run a semi-monthly payroll, the registration/payroll cutoff for onboarding really depends on the country. In this article, we have outlined specific guidance on the payroll/registration cutoff per country.
