  • When paying eligible employees, you do not need to adjust your pay cycle through your existing payroll solution.
  • If you usually pay your employees less frequently than fortnightly, the payment can be allocated between fortnights in a reasonable manner. For example, if you pay your employees on a monthly pay cycle, your employees must have received the monthly equivalent of $1,500 per fortnight.
