Please add all years that employees have compensations in, plus at least one year after the current package ends. You will generally see a minimum of 5 pay schedule years configured for each Pay Schedule here.
Any employee compensation added to the system that does not have that year configured will be loaded with an annual amount for their per pay amount since the system defaults all un-configured years with 1 pay period. For example, an employee with a salary amount effective in 2005 will be placed in the system with an annual salary of $2,500 instead of that same amount being multiplied 24 or 26 times since the year was not configured.
Employee demographics should not be loaded into the HRIS system until all Pay Schedules are assigned.
When configuring a Pay Schedule, you can create both a Check Dates and a Pay Period End Dates calendar.
Check Dates: The dates entered will signify dates employees will receive a paycheck. Benefits, Compensation, and Payroll Deductions are based off the Check Dates. If you wish to do a Deduction Date Exclusion, this can be setup at the Benefit Level. Please see: Pay Date Exclusions
Additionally, Accruals that are based on Pay Dates will use the Check Dates calendar.
Pay Period End Dates: The dates in which a pay period ends. Time & Attendance (TLM) is based on the Pay Period End Dates.
After configuring your dates for your Pay Schedule, click the action drop-down menu above the calendar, and click Save Calendars.
