Salary Element Periodicity vs. Absence Work Schedules

Received Response


Is there a way to configure the salary element to look at employees' work schedules rather than assignment hours?

The scenario is as follows:

Employees are scheduled to work 34 hrs/week. Their working hours per their assignment is 34/week.

For the work schedule, the employee is scheduled to work Mon-Thurs at 7 hrs/day and Fri at 6 hrs/day.

If the employee takes a leave on the Friday, the absence rate is being multiplied by 6, whereas the salary offset is being multiplied by 6.8 (34*2 = 68 biweekly / 10 days in the pay period).

Thus the absence earnings and the salary offset are not being calculated on the same number of hours and there is a discrepancy in the payment to the employee (i.e. the employee's earnings are less than they should be).

Howdy, Stranger!
