How can we help?

Switch your employee to hourly, salaried, or commission

If your employee's classification is changing, you should update this in Gusto.

  1. Click the People tab.
  2. Click your employee’s name.
  3. Navigate to the Job & Pay tab.
  4. Click Edit next to the Compensation section.
  5. Next to Employee Type, select one of the below–check out this resource for more info on classifying your employee:
    •  Salary/No Overtime
    • Salary/Eligible for Overtime
    • Paid by the Hour. 
    • Commission only/No overtime
    • Commission only/Eligible for overtime
  6. Update the compensation rate or default hours per pay period if applicable.
  7. Click Save.

Note: If you are using multiple pay schedules, there may be a gap or overlap in the employee's hours for this payroll.

  • If there is a gap between the employee's old and new pay schedules, process an off-cycle payroll for the in-between dates with the prorated amount.
  • If there is an overlap, you will need to edit the pay on the employee's next regular payroll with the reduced prorated amount.
