Further information

Pay run warning definitions
ABA details are missing. The platform displays this warning when there are no available bank account details provided for a pay run, and therefore the platform can not generate an ABA file. 
BPAY details missing. The platform displays this warning when there are no business BPAY files provided, but employees have BPAY accounts set up and need processing in the pay run. The platform can not generate BPAY files until you add these details.
Employee with negative earnings amount. The platform displays this warning when the net payment amount for an employee is less than 0.
Employee with unpaid earnings. The platform displays this warning when an employee has an earnings line with hours applied, but the total value of the earnings line is 0(zero). This usually shows there's an error with the employee's rate of pay.
Employee with birthday. The platform displays this warning when an employee has a birthday during the pay run period and therefore may need to have their rate of pay reviewed.
Employee with work anniversary. The platform displays this warning when the anniversary of the employees start date occurs during the pay run period and therefore may need to have their rate of pay reviewed.
Employee taking more leave than accrued. The platform displays this warning when an employee is attempting to take more leave than they have accrued.
Employee had a start/termination date within the pay period. The platform displays this warning when an employee, set up with default standard hours, has either started employment or terminated employment mid-pay period and so the platform calculates pro rata hours. This warning acts as a reminder to check that the platform has calculated the employee's pro rata hours correctly.
Previously terminated employee. The platform displays this warning when an inactive employee with the status as previously terminated appears in the pay run.
Terminated employee with outstanding recurring expenses. The platform displays this warning when a previously terminated employee, owed an expense reimbursement amount from their expense pay run inclusion, appears in the pay run.
Employee with expired qualification. The platform displays this warning when an employee's qualification has expired within the pay run period.
Employee with duplicate earnings lines. The platform displays this warning when there is multiple earning lines associated with the same timesheet line that contains the same units, pay rate, total earnings and notes.
Employee expense without a tax code selected. The platform displays this warning when applying an expense in a pay run, and it does not contain a tax code. This only applies with a business connected to an online journal service and that has synced their tax codes against the expense categories.
Employee has reached their leave cap. The platform displays this warning for any employee whose leave entitlement has reached the maximum accrual for the year.
Pending leave requests. The platform displays a warning when an employee has submitted a leave request pertaining to any dates within that pay period, that need approving. The platform does not allow you to apply pending leave requests to a pay run unless approved. For automated pay runs, the platform will not apply pending leave requests in the pay run.
Leave request extends past pay run dates. The platform displays this warning when an employee's leave request spans multiple pay periods. This warning is important as it highlights only a portion of the leave request that needs applying in the pay run.
Leave request ends before pay run dates. The platform displays this warning when an employee's leave request dates back in the past and is therefore relevant to previous pay periods.
Incomplete pay run tasks. The platform displays this warning when created tasks for the pay run in question require completing.
Pending Expense Requests. The platform displays this warning when an employee has submitted an expense request pertaining to this pay period and still needs approval. The platform does not allow you to apply pending expense requests to a pay run unless approved. For automated pay runs, the platform will not apply pending expense requests in the pay run.
