Common Questions Regarding Rollback

  1. I cannot see the payroll that I want to reverse in the list
    Employees will only exist in one instance within the payroll rollback screen, and only in their most recent payroll period and as such, you cannot reverse a payroll prior to their most recently processed period.

    In order to remove the older period the payrolls would need to be reversed in order back to the required point. As this information has likely already been posted to STP it is usually better to do an adjustment within the current payroll rather than a rollback.

  2. My employees are missing from the rollback screen
    If the employees are not showing on the list it is likely that they have already been included in a payroll draft. Before they can be reversed the draft will need to be removed.
