Start the Pay Run

There's a fair amount of information included in the PaySchedule .
The nextPayRun and employeeCount properties give you useful information about the PayRun you are about to start.
But you don't have to do anything with this information.

All that's required to start the PayRun is a a simple POST to the relevant URL containing the year and PayPeriod in the path.
