How do I enter sick time taken in Wave?

When an employee takes a sick day, enter the sick hours/time taken in Timesheets. Entering sick time in Timesheets will reduce the employee’s sick pay balance by the amount entered. 

For annual salaried employees, go to Timesheets and click the arrow to the right of the employee name in order to enter additional hours.
