NewFeature.pngThe U.S. Department of Labor published a final rule that reduces reporting requirements for federal contractors and subcontractors who hire and employ veterans under provisions of the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended VEVRAA.

 

The final rule revises the VETS-100A Report and renames it the VETS-4212 Report. The VETS-100 Report will no longer be used. The VETS-4212 Report requires contractors to report specified information on protected veterans in their workforce in the aggregate, rather than for each category of veterans protected under the statute, reducing the required reporting elements by almost half, from 82 to 42. Under VEVRAA, the term "protected veterans" includes: disabled veterans, veterans who served on active duty during a war or campaign for which a campaign badge was authorized, veterans who were awarded an Armed Forces Service Medal and recently separated veterans.

 

Refer to https://federalregister.gov/a/2014-22818 for more information regarding the final rule.

 

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Human Resources application has been updated to create the required VETS 4212 information.  Access R080436 (VETS-4212 Employment Report) for your reporting requirements.

Announcement.pngThe JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Australia Payroll product is enhanced to support Australia SuperStream.  SuperStream is an Australian government reform aimed at improving the efficiency of the superannuation system.  The main purpose of SuperStream is to ensure employer contributions are paid in a consistent, timely and efficient manner to a member’s account. The change also removes many of the complexities employers currently face as a result of funds being able to set up different arrangements for accepting contributions. This new functionality provides a data and payment standard used to report Superannuation contributions electronically.


A new report, Superannuation XML Extract Report (R75A0350) will generate the data file that can be used to submit superannuation contributions to your clearing house.


Australia Superstream Extract Functionality Is Available (Doc ID 2004013.1) provides more information on the new enhancement features, Australia documentation updates and Transfer of Information (TOI) access.

What are Accruals?

  • Accruals represent a number of paid hours that a company funds as additional employee compensation.  Usually, an employee accrues a certain number of hours per pay period.
  • Accruals have no effect on an employee's gross or net pay.
  • Accruals can be considered as Vacation, Sick, Paid Time Off, etc.

 

Accruals are set up in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne HCM product in application Pay Types, Deductions, Benefits and Accruals (P059116).  Accruals can be a flat amount or they can utilize a calculation table to provide the employee their accrued hours.

 

Calculation Tables utilize Table Methods.  Table Methods contain the programming rules that tell the system how to calculate the DBA using the information defined in the calculation table.  Below is an example of table methods available in the Dates Category. 

  • Read the table from left to right
  • First and Second columns make up the Table Method (i.e., O+A=OA)
  • Match option in first column with value in second column, then continue reading straight across

There are a variety of table methods that can be utilized to calculate your employee accruals.  Refer to Calculation Table Quick Reference DBA Table Method Quick Reference Sheet (Doc ID 625898.1) and the Human Capital Management Fundamental Implementation Guide, Section 10.4:  Setting Up Table Method DBAs.

 

For more information on Understand and Utilizing DBA Calculation Tables and Methods to Calculate Accruals, please refer to the Advisor Webcast on the topic (access the 2015 Archived Tab and select the recording and/or power point presentation for Understand and Utilizing DBA Calculation Tables and Methods to Calculate Accruals).
