Recipe Overview

Sometimes Payroll admins can face the unideal situation where an employee is inadvertently excluded from a company’s pay run—for example, if they missed the fact that an employee didn’t submit their hours in time, or the employee’s hours weren’t approved.

But regardless of the reason an employee is left out, the onus lies on the company to ensure that every employee is paid on its regular schedule, otherwise they can be liable to pay fines.

With this Recipe, you’ll get an extra set of eyes on your pay runs. When an employee that was in the company’s previous pay run is missing from its current one, Rippling will automatically send a notification to the employee’s manager and the Payroll admin, alerting them to missing employee.

Want to notify your employee as well? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the actions should be, who it should go to, and more.
