You can always find your payroll report under Company > Reports in Justworks. With this report, you’ll also be able to sum employee payments by week, month, or another selected time frame.

Run Payroll Report by Department or Office Location

No more time wasted trying to gather accurate payroll information on specific departments or office locations. Justworks gives you the ability to filter the report by department or office location. Or use the subtotals per department included at the bottom of each downloadable report to analyze your payment details.

Simply navigate to Advanced Filters on the Payroll Report page to filter by department, employee member type, and more. You can download your custom payroll report .csv from the top of the page.
