Payroll when not using the Payroll module

If you are not using the Payroll module, How do you establish whether an employee is paid on date based on when he clocks in or which day has more hours on it?

if he clocks in Saturday night at 8pm, works til Sunday 4am, where do I specify the rules for this as pertains to what is entered in laborhed.payrolldate?
Also, is there a way to trigger that a day has been paid, i.e laborhed.transfertopayroll is set to TRUE?

Thank you!
