Payroll accuracy is the cornerstone of a healthy employer-employee relationship. When employees receive incorrect paychecks, it can lead to frustration, decreased morale, and even legal ramifications. Retroactive pay, or “retro pay,” is a common cause of payroll inaccuracies in every organization. It refers to the process of adjusting an employee’s pay after the initial payroll cycle due to errors in timekeeping, missed punches, or changes in pay rates.

This translates to significant financial losses for businesses, along with the administrative burden of correcting mistakes and facing potential employee disputes.
