Enhanced Add Person Flows

The Add Person flows are enhanced for capturing employment, compensation, and roles information. The earlier Employment Information page is split into two train stops: Employment Information, and Compensation and Other Information to avoid scrolling down the page.

You can also add direct reports to the person in the same transaction from the Manage Direct Reports section in the Employment Information page.

Employment Information Train Stop Split Into Employment Information, and Compensation and Other Information Train Stops

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Enhanced Manage Direct Reports

Manage direct reports functionality now supports matrix management. You can now add direct reports or reassign both direct and other types of reports to different manager types on the Manage Direct Reports page. You can either select or deselect the direct reports in a single click.

   Add Direct Reports to Different Manger Types on the Manage Direct Reports Page

You can also add direct reports and reassign line reports from the following manager self-service pages: Hire, Add Contingent Worker, Promote, Transfer, Change Working Hours, and Change Manager. In addition the manage direct reports functionality is also included in the following human resource specialist processes: Hire, Add Contingent Worker, Create Work Relationship, Global Transfer, Global Temporary Assignment, Temporary Assignment, Add Assignment, Add Work Terms, End Assignment, and End Work Terms.

However, on the Terminate page, you can manage only direct line reports because terminations may involve multiple assignments.

   

Add Direct Reports Included in Promote Page

Steps to Enable

There are no steps needed to enable the feature.

Tips and Considerations

Use the Reassign Direct Reports section embedded on the Employment pages if the proposed manager is different from the manager's manager.

Changes from Extensible to User for Specific Person Lookup Types   

You can now customize your own values for the following lookup types as they are converted from a customization level of extensible to user:

You can add lookup codes or change the tags for the user lookup type to suit your business requirements.

Customization Level for Contact Lookup Type is User

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Tips and Considerations

A new system-level lookup type now exists for each of the above user-level lookup types. Predefined legislative and statutory reports use the system-level lookup types, which are as follows:

You must create an extended lookup mapping to add a new lookup code that needs to be included in reports delivered by Oracle localization teams. You map the extended lookups using the Manage Extended Lookups task.

Mapping Highest Education Level System Lookup Code

For example, if you add 'HUSB' and 'WIFE' as new lookup codes for country US, and 'PART' as a new lookup code for country 'GB', the extended lookup for 'ORA_PER_CONTACT' will be as follows.

Lookup Type

Country

Lookup Code

Extended Code

Extended Meaning

ORA_PER_CONTACT

SPOUSE

SPOUSE

Husband/Wife/Partner for China

ORA_PER_CONTACT

US

SPOUSE

HUSB

Husband (US only)

ORA_PER_CONTACT

US

SPOUSE

WIFE

Wife (US only)

ORA_PER_CONTACT

GB

SPOUSE

PART

Life Partner (GB only)

If you change any of the details in an Oracle delivered lookup code in the user lookup types, you take ownership of the lookup code. The lookup code will not be updated when Oracle delivers any updates to that lookup code. But, if you delete the lookup code in the user lookup type, it will be replaced when Oracle delivers updates to the lookup type.

Enhanced Duplicate Person Validation

The prevention of adding duplicate people functionality in the Add Person flows is extended to the Worker service. A new option, Person Creation Service Duplicate Check is added on the Manage Enterprise HCM Information page. This option is referenced when creating workers though the Worker service. You must update this option to specify your preferred level of duplicate person validation. This option checks for matches between person name, date of birth, gender and national ID. The validation generates an error and prevents creation of a duplicate person if there are any conflicts.

   

Person Creation Service Duplicate Check Field Added on the Manage Enterprise HCM Information Page

Steps to Enable

By default, the Person Creation Service Duplicate Check option is disabled to avoid regression issues. You must specify a value for this option to enable the validation and the level of check in the Worker service.

Salary Update when Changing Working Hours

Enhance line manager’s ability to update the salary of part-time workers when changing their working hours. You can now update the salary by using the Change Working Hours task in Manager Self Service.

Areas of Responsibility Enhanced to Include Additional Attributes and Responsibility

Provide greater flexibility in defining the scope of areas of responsibility. You can now define scope based on job families and job functions. The Areas of Responsibility page also shows a new Recruiting responsibility type and new scope attributes based on recruiting type and hierarchies. The recruiting responsibility type and recruiting attributes are for use with a future enhancement.

New Attributes in the Scope Definition

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Job Family Code Added to Job Family Pages

The Job Family Code is a new field added on the Manage Job Family and Create Job Family page. The job family code facilitates tighter integration with other external applications that have this attribute and require the value to be passed to Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM). The attribute value is automatically populated from the job family name after formatting it into capitals and replacing blank spaces with underscores. Although you can change the job family code, the changes arent tracked.

Existing customers can also continue to use the following 3 Tier options:

NOTE: For existing customers using only the 2 Tier options, we recommend that you dont use the 3 Tier options because of the employment model simplification.

You can access the employment model options using the Manage Legal Entity HCM Information or Manage Enterprise HCM Information task in the Setup and Maintenance work area.

Changed Rules for Populating Grades and Grade Ladders in Assignments

The rules for populating the grades and grade ladders in an assignment are now changed. You can now use the Default Valid Grades profile option independent of the Enforce Valid Grades profile option, to populate valid grades in an assignment. The Default Valid Grades profile option populates the grade in a new assignment, while the Enforce Valid Grades profile option also restricts the Grade LOV in the assignment to allow only the selection of a grade that is valid for the job or position.

Valid grades are now populated from the position, even if no entry grade is specified in the position. If valid grades are enforced or configured to be synchronized from the position and the enforced valid grade is not part of the selected grade ladder, a warning is shown in the assignment.

Some of the other rules for populating the grade and grade ladder are as follows:

Steps to Enable

New Position Attribute - Standard Working Hours

Use the new Standard Working Hours field on the Create and Edit Position pages to capture standard working hours, which can be different from working hours to support part-time positions. This value is now used to calculate the FTE (Full Time Equivalent) in the assignment. So, even if a value for the FTE exists at the position it won’t be copied in an assignment that uses that position. Instead, the assignment FTE value is calculated as a ratio of working hours to standard working hours. For example, if there are 3 incumbents in a position working 20 hours each, the information displayed in the position and assignment is as follows:

Enhance the user experience by securing access to the following Areas of Responsibility (AOR) tasks:

The access to manage or view a worker’s responsibility is now secured separately using new aggregate privileges. You can easily add or remove responsibility-related functions when defining custom roles to better suit your business requirements.

HR Analysts can view responsibilities by responsibility type, responsibility name, or person using the Maintain Areas of Responsibility task in the Workforce Structures work area. The HR Analyst has view-only access to the Maintain Areas of Responsibility page whereas the HR Specialist can reassign responsibilities using the same page. HR Analysts can view responsibilities by person using the Manage Areas of Responsibility task in the Person Management work area. HR Specialists can manage responsibilities by person using the Manage Areas of Responsibility task in the Person Management work area.

HR Analysts Can View Responsibilities by Person and HR Specialists Can Manage Responsibilities by Person

HR Analysts Can View Responsibilities by Type, Name, or Person and HR Specialists Can Manage Responsibilities by Type

Steps to Enable

To enable view-only access for the Maintain Areas of Responsibility page, your custom HR Analyst job roles must have access to the Workforce Structures work area. The seeded HR Analyst job role will not have access to the Maintain Areas of Responsibility page until Bug 24704097 is resolved. As a workaround, you can add the duty role ORA_PER_WORKFORCE_STRUCTURES_MANAGEMENT_DUTY for the HR Analyst job role.

Populate the Context of the Document Records DFF Based on the Document Type

Improve the usability of document records by now automatically populating the context of the document records descriptive flexfield (DFF) when you create a document record. The context is populated based on the selected document type. This enhancement will automatically control the display of the flexfield segments for the populated context based on the configuration.

You can populate the context by configuring the context code for the document records DFF to be the same as the system document type. You manually enter the context code based on the document type when you create the context. The context will be automatically populated when the context code matches the internally generated system document type. You can create the context by using the Manage Descriptive Flexfields task in the Setup and Maintenance work area.

The system document type is an internal code that is not currently shown on the UI, but stored in the HR_DOCUMENT_TYPES_B table. The value of the system document type is derived by the application using the following logic:

Human Capital Management for Canada

Oracle Fusion HRMS (Canada) supports country specific features and functions for Canada. It enables users to follow Canada’s business practices and comply with its statutory requirements.

Involuntary Deductions: Enhanced Protected Pay Rules

Additional Protected Pay functionality is introduced to specify how the employee’s protected pay is calculated.

Protected Pay functionality for involuntary deductions was initially introduced in release 10, bundle 17. It was also previously enhanced in release 11, bundle 8. Several new rules are introduced with this release.

You can configure protected pay rules for each individual deduction on the involuntary deduction card for the employee. The payroll process calculates the protected pay amount based on the rules configured on the involuntary deduction card for the employee. Use the Enterable Calculation Values on Calculation Cards tab on the Manage Calculation Cards page, to create individual entries and define the rules.

Enterable Calculation Values on Calculation Cards

You can create entries using the following new rules:

New Rules

This is a Yes or No option that specifies how the protected pay calculation applies the percentage.

For example, if the court order specifies a Protected Pay exemption of $X, plus 50% of the wages above that exemption, then you would use this rule.

If your selection is:

Exemption

This is an exemption amount used to reduce the gross or net prior to applying the deduction percentage in the calculation.

Maximum Protected Pay Amount Per Month

This is an amount that specifies a maximum value for the protected pay amount for each deduction in a month. If there are multiple deductions of the same type (for example, 2 garnishments), this serves as the maximum value for all deductions of the same deduction type.

Maximum Withholding Amount Per Month

This is an amount that specifies a maximum withholding value for the deduction in a month.

Configure these rules for any of the deduction types: Garnishment, Maintenance and Support, and Tax Levy. You can use a combination of these rules to meet the requirements in the court order.

The British Columbia Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (BC FMEP) has a prescribed rate for protected pay based on the amount of wages paid per period. This is only for maintenance and support deductions and is addressed by configuring the following rule:

Maintenance and Support BC FMEP

This is a Yes or No option that specifies whether the protected pay calculation for British Columbia FMEP is enabled.

If your selection is Yes, the British Columbia FMEP protected pay calculations are performed.

If your selection is No, the British Columbia FMEP protected pay calculations are not performed.

If you configure other protected pay rules, the British Columbia FMEP protected pay calculations are overridden and the other protected pay rules are used in the calculations.

The requirements for British Columbia FMEP are preconfigured by Oracle.

Some important items to note regarding the Disposable Income Calculation Rule are:

The protected pay amount calculated for the deduction, as well as additional details, is displayed in the run results for the Results and element’s shadow elements. 

Any amounts in arrears will also observe the protected pay limits.

Use the Manage Calculation Cards task from the Payroll Calculation or the Person Management work areas to create the involuntary deduction card.

Steps to Enable

There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

Reporting Information Card

Use the reporting information card to capture values required for the Record of Employment (ROE).

ROE information is captured by creating calculation components and their associated component details. For example, the calculation component of ‘Reason for Issuing ROE’ corresponds to its component details of the valid reasons as per Service Canada.

The information captured is used to report ROE information in the following blocks:

Additionally, several items are now defaulted and automatically created. The enhancements to the UI include:

Use the Manage Calculation Cards task from the Payroll Calculation and the Person Management work areas to create a Reporting Information card.

Global Absence Element Uptake

Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management for Canada provides the ability to process absences in Canada. There is integration between the absence management system and payroll. The information passed from absences to payroll is used to calculate the absence payment in payroll.

The absence element is created in payroll. When defining the absence plan, the absence element is associated to the plan, which serves as the connection between the absence and payroll systems. When an absence is recorded for the employee, the person’s absence calculation card is created and the absence plan is linked to the calculation component on the person's calculation card. Also, the daily and summary breakdown information is automatically transferred to payroll.

You can process the payroll that includes these absence entries and view the resulting absence balances on the person's Statement of Earnings (SOE). After you process and archive payments, you can also view the resulting absence balances on the person's payslip.

Rules and leave plans for absences vary throughout Canada. In general, they are defined by provincial Employment Standards, although employers can also define their own rules. Uptake of the global absence template will provide the primary classification of Absence and the additional secondary classifications of the following absence types:

Absence and accrual balances are displayed in the following:

As a summary, the high-level list of the steps involved in processing absences is noted below. These are in sequential order, as some of the setup may be used in a subsequent step. A number of the steps show the related pages displaying the configuration or results of the processing.

  1. Create rate definitions to use in calculating accrual and liability balances.
  2. Create absence element and eligibility.
  3. You must create the eligibility for the following elements:

    <base element (for example, RLH CA Vacation)

    <base element> accrual (for example, RLH CA Vacation Accrual)

    <base element> entitlement (for example, RLH CA Vacation Entitlement)

  4. Create derived factors, if applicable.
  5. Create eligibility profile.
  6. Create an absence plan and ensure the following is defined for payroll:
  7. Create absence types and associate them to the absence plans.
  8. Enroll employees in the absence plan.
  9. Process the Run Accruals for Selected Plan task action (for approvals).
  10. Record an absence for the employee.
  11. NOTE: When the absence accrual is run or absence record is recorded, an absence card is automatically created and the daily and summary breakdown information is automatically transferred to payroll.

    NOTE: The capture above is the entitlement component that displays its related component details. It is an example of an absence entitlement payment.

    NOTE: The capture above is the accrual component that displays its related component details. It is an example of an absence accrual balance.

  12. Process payroll.
  13. View absence balances in the SOE.
    1. Process payslip and other reports.

    The absence information is configured in the Absence Administration work area.

    Steps to Enable

    There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

    Tips and Considerations

    Within the absence plan, you must ensure the following is defined for the absence information to transfer to payroll for processing.

    1. Select the transfer absence payment information for payroll processing check box.
    2. Select the element for the plan in the Element field (this element is the absence element created in payroll).

    Absence Elements: Discretionary and Final Disbursement Absence Payments

    Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management for Canada provides the ability to select different options for taxation, EI allocation, and EI hours for discretionary and final disbursement payments. Because these types of payments may be taxed differently than regular absence payments, this functionality was introduced to designate different values when creating the absence element.

    When the absence element is created, two questions exist on the element template that creates additional shadow elements, based on the input to the question. The existing questions on the absence template are:

    1. Does this plan enable balance payments when enrollment ends?
    2. Does this plan enable partial payment of balance?

    When you select Yes to either question, you are presented with additional questions related to Tax Processing and Record of Employment. Previously, you could only select those options for the base element, but you are now able to select those options for both the Final and Discretionary Disbursement elements that are automatically created. You may select different values for each element if you choose to.

    When you select Yes for the question, Does this plan enable balance payments when enrollment ends?, you are now presented with the additional options to specify the tax method, EI allocation and EI hours for the final disbursement payments. If you select No, the element is not created.

    When you select Yes for the question, Does this plan enable partial payment of balance?, you are now presented with the additional options to specify the tax method, EI allocation and EI hours for the discretionary disbursement payments. If you select No, the element is not created.

    Additionally, you may override the values selected during element creation for the tax method, EI hours and EI allocation for any of the shadow elements that are created (entitlement, discretionary disbursement and final disbursement). These values are stored as value definitions, so you override them using the Manage Calculation Value Definitions task.

    The naming convention of the value definitions created for each shadow element is as given below:

    Entitlement Element

    Discretionary Disbursement Element

    Final Disbursement Element

    To override the value, use the Manage Calculation Value Definitions task, select the value definition name to edit, and make the change to the value definition. This overridden value is used during the payroll process, instead of the value initially configured at element creation.

    If you override the values, they must be valid. The text values you must use to override the various types of value definitions are as given below:

    Tax Processing

    EI Allocation

    EI Hours

    The following is an example of where an override to the tax processing type is entered. The ‘N’ noted in the text column indicates that the tax will be calculated using the nonperiodic method.

    Steps to Enable

    There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

    Tips and Considerations

    This functionality is only applicable for new absence elements that you create. Previously configured absence elements will not support this functionality.

    Employee Active Payroll Balance Report 

    Run the Employee Active Payroll Balance report to reconcile your balances prior to periodic or year-end reporting. The Employee Active Payroll Balance Report displays current and year-to-date values for employee balances without the need to process the payroll archive. This report assists in determining if any tax balances are over the statutory limits and if any of the tax liability balances are improperly calculated. To assist with year-end reconciliation and balancing of your year-end box balance data, run this report throughout the year to make year-end balancing easier.

    The report is a pipe delimited text file of live payroll balances for an employee filtered by various parameters. You can easily convert the output text file into an Excel spreadsheet for further totaling and manipulation to meet your specific requirements. Select a dimension of run or year, and a balance group usage to display all balances defined for that group.

    You can configure this report to return balances for the following:

    The parameters of the Employee Active Payroll Balance report are:

    The Balance Group Usage parameter is a defined group of balances used for reporting. There are six usages preconfigured by Oracle:

    The individual balances reported for each of the preconfigured balance groups are listed in the order they are displayed on the report. Please see the End-of-Year Processing Guide on the Canada Information Center for a complete list of balances defined for each balance group.

    If the preconfigured balance groups do not meet your specific reporting needs, you may create additional balance group usages to use for reporting.

    For Canada, we have certain contexts associated with some balances, which may cause multiple lines on the report for one employee’s balance. Some balances may have province, statutory reporting type, or reference code contexts associated with them, although not all balances contain contexts.

    The statutory reporting type context is the year-end form that the balances are associated with. The statutory reporting type is associated with an element's secondary classification and determines how that element is used in the payroll calculation, as well as how it is reported at the end of the year.

    The reference code context is for Worker’s Compensation and Provincial Medical balances and contain the relevant account information.

    The only prerequisite to running the report is that a valid payroll action must exist, like a payroll run, quickpay, or balance initialization. Processing the payroll archive is not required prior to running the report.

    You may access the Run Employee Active Payroll Balance Report from the following work areas:

    The Output Displays the Balances for the Canadian T4 Year to Date Balance Group Usage After Importing the Data into Excel

    Steps to Enable

    There are no steps necessary to enable this feature.

    Tips and Considerations

    The output of this report is purely a balance-based record of an employee’s live balances. If an employee has any of the balances defined in the balance group usage selected as a parameter, within the date range specified, they are included in this report. As noted, certain balances require certain contexts (province, statutory report type, reference code) and are stored that way in the application. As a consequence of this, the report may display multiple lines for each balance for each dimension and context for that employee. A row with a blank context value may also appear as a total. You can restrict the output of the data by selecting specific report parameters to pick up the relevant employees for each balance group usage. For example, if you want to restrict the output for only those employees to receive an RL-2, you may create a group that contains only those RL-2 employees and select that group using the parameters.

    Additionally, you can import the data into Excel or another similar spreadsheet tool and manipulate the data as per your requirements. Once the report completes, use the steps below to import the data into Excel.

    1. Click the txt file created by the process and save it.
    2. Open Excel.
    3. Click the Data tab, and then click From Text.
    4. Navigate to the saved txt file and select it. This will engage the Text Import Wizard.
    5. Select Delimited.
    6. Click the My data has headers checkbox, and then click Next.
    7. During this step, you are able to preview your data and how it is going to appear in Excel as you make changes to ensure it is correctly displayed in the spreadsheet. You may also format the data in each column using this method by clicking each column and selecting the desired format. Alternatively, you may format the data in the spreadsheet itself. The default format is General for each column, which converts numeric values to Numbers, date values to Dates and all others to Text.
    8. When you are happy with the results, click Finish.
    9. Name the worksheet, and then click OK.

    If the pre-defined balance groups do not meet the customer’s specific reporting needs, they may create additional balance group usages to use for reporting. To create a user-defined balance, balance group and group usage, use the steps below.

    To create a new balance:

    1. Navigate to Payroll Calculation > Manage Balance Definitions. If you want to use pre-defined balances, skip these steps and create the new balance group.
    2. Click Create.
    3. Select the Legislative Data Group, and click Continue.
    4. Add the Payroll Balance details, and click Next.
    5. On the Balance Dimensions page, click Select and Add.
    6. Search for and select the Dimension Name (for example, Relationship Tax Unit Run or Relationship Tax Unit Year to Date).
    7. Click Apply, and then Done.
    8. Click Next, Submit, and then OK.

    To create a new balance group:

    1. Navigate to Payroll Calculation > Manage Balance Groups.
    2. Click Create.
    3. Select the Legislative Data Group, enter a Name, and then click Continue.
    4. Click Submit.
    5. In the Balance Group Overview pane, click Balance Definitions, and then click Select and Add.
    6. Search for and select the desired balance definitions. Click Apply to add each balance definition you require, and then click OK. You may select pre-defined balances or a newly created balance.
    7. Note: If the context level balance values are required for Reference Code and Year End Forms (Statutory Report Type) contexts, then you must add the balances with dimensions that include that context (for example Relationship Tax Unit, Province, Reference Code Year to Date or Relationship Tax Unit, Statutory Report Type Run).
    8. Click Submit.

    To create a new balance group usage:

    1. Navigate to Payroll Calculation > Manage Balance Group Usages.
    2. Click Create.
    3. Select the Legislative Data Group, enter a Name, select the newly added Balance Group, and select Matrix.
    4. Click Continue.
    5. In the Balance Group Usages pane, select Matrix Items.
    6. In Matrix Items, click Create.
    7. Search for and select the Balance Dimension Name, and enter a Position value. Continue this step until you have created all desired usages. You may create multiple usages for each combination of contexts required.

    NOTE: Each Balance Group Usage should only contain one period type of balance dimensions (for example, all Run, or all Year to Date, or all Month to Date).

    1. To sort the balances in the group, select Sorting to define the sequencing.
    2. Click Submit.

    You may now select your newly added Balance Group Usage as a parameter of the report.

    Non Taxable Employee and Employer Contribution Threshold Amounts

    Comply with the regulation on taxable social security contribution calculations in Shenzhen and Shanghai by capturing nontaxable employee and employer contribution threshold amounts and using them in monthly individual income tax calculations.

    Steps to Enable

    Set up the employee and employer nontaxable contribution threshold amounts by social security item, territory and contribution type as needed. This setup should occur at the payroll statutory unit level, on the Statutory Deductions calculation card, under the Social Security group.

    Set Up Nontaxable Contribution Threshold Amounts at Payroll Statutory Unit Calculation Card Level

    You may also set up the threshold amounts at tax reporting unit level and/or payroll relationship level.

    Tips and Considerations

    Amounts set up at payroll statutory unit level apply to everyone in a territory of a contribution type, if no overriding value is provided at tax reporting unit level or payroll relationship level. Amounts set up at tax reporting unit level apply to everyone making contribution via the tax reporting unit if no overriding value is provided at payroll relationship level. Amounts set up at payroll relationship level are used in the tax calculation for a particular employee if available.

    For the taxable social security contribution calculation, data set up at Payroll Relationship level always takes precedent, followed by the data set up at Tax Reporting Unit level and then the data at Payroll Statutory Unit level.

    The nontaxable contribution threshold amounts will be used in the calculations, if, apart from nontaxable contribution threshold amounts, the nontaxable contribution rates and/or nontaxable contribution base amounts are set up at the Payroll Statutory Unit, Tax Reporting Unit and the Payroll Relationship level.

    Supplementary Public Housing Fund

    Set up the contribution rules on the payroll statutory unit deduction card by contribution type for the territories where you manage supplementary public housing fund contributions for your employees. Add the supplementary public housing fund component, component details, and overriding values on the employees’ deduction card. The Calculate Payroll process will then calculate both employee and employer’s contributions to the fund.

    If the contribution policy varies by organization within the territory, you may set up overriding values on the tax reporting unit deduction card.

    Steps to Enable

    To use the functionality, administrators must perform the following steps:

    1. In the Setup and Maintenance work area, search for an implementation project with the Workforce Deployment offering.
    2. Select the payroll statutory unit, click the Go to task of the Manage Legal Entity Calculation Cards task.
    3. Open the Statutory Deductions card and select the Social Security component group.
    4. Add the Supplementary Public Housing Fund component, component details, and calculation values.

    7. Payroll users must perform the following steps for every employee who contributes to the fund.
    8. Search for an employee.
    9. Open the employee’s Deduction Information card through the Manage Calculation Cards task.
    10. Select the Social Security component group and add the Supplementary Public Housing Fund component, component details, and overriding values.

    Payroll Data Capture

    Calculation cards have been provided to capture the appropriate data for both social insurance and gratuity, at legal entity level and person level.

    The employer social insurance details calculation card uses the following information for the social insurance calculation at the legal entity level:

    The employer type can be government sector, a joint stock company, military sector, private sector, or petroleum sector. The calculation rules for social insurance are applied based on the employer type chosen.

    You can define the formula that calculates the contributory salary at the legal entity level. The contributory salary value is derived from this formula and is used as the reference value for the social insurance calculation. This formula must have the value returned using variable CONTRIBUTORY_SALARY_REFERENCE.

    Calculation Component Details: Employer Social Insurance Details

    The gratuity calculation card contains the payroll statutory unit (PSU) gratuity details and uses the following information for gratuity calculation at the legal entity level:

    You can indicate whether or not gratuity is to be paid to workers employed in the legal entity. If no gratuity is to be paid to any employee this field should be left blank, and there will be no gratuity calculation made when any employee period of service is terminated. Otherwise gratuity will be paid based on the legislative regulations.

    You must define your own salary formula to calculate the salary to be used for the gratuity calculation. Once you have defined the salary formula, you select it as the gratuity salary formula on the calculation card. The formula must return the values using variable MONTHLY_SALARY.

    You can define your own reference formula to calculate the paid gratuity amount and select it as the gratuity reference formula. The formula must return the values using variable PAID_GRATUITY. This overrides the amount calculated by the default reference formula.

    Calculation Component Details: Employer Gratuity Details

    The Employee Social Insurance Details calculation card captures values required for calculating and processing social insurance deductions.

    Social insurance deductions are only processed for Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) citizens. You must specify the citizenship of the employee as social insurance will be processed based on this information.

    The registered for social insurance checkbox indicates whether to process social insurance calculations for employees.

    The exempt from SI contribution difference checkbox indicates how to process the difference in any employer's subscription. The employee will normally pay any difference in the contribution unless this field indicates otherwise, as the country of citizenship has agreed to pay the difference on behalf of the employee.

    The country of citizenship pension checkbox indicates whether or not an employee is receiving a pension from their country of citizenship. This does not affect the social insurance calculation, but can be used for reporting purposes.

    If the employee is a UAE citizen the social insurance calculations are based on an exception type. Depending on the selected exception type, the employee or the employer pays the contributions. If no value is specified, then the employer and the employee each pay their own contributions.

    Calculation Component Details: Qatar Employee Social Insurance Details

    The Employee Gratuity Details calculation card is required to trigger the gratuity payment process and can be used to capture an override amount for the gratuity payment, if required.

    The Employee Social Insurance Details calculation card captures values required for calculating and processing social insurance deductions. Citizenship and registered for social insurance are defaulted automatically. If necessary, you can override this information using the calculation card and its components.

    The Employee Gratuity Details calculation card is required to trigger the gratuity payment process and there are no defaults.

    TIPS AND CONSIDERATIONS

    Social Insurance Calculations

    Social insurance is applicable to all Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) citizens who work in Qatar and are paid there.

    Contributions are calculated as percentages of a contributory salary. The contributory salary components are elements like basic compensation, accommodation and transport allowances. The country of citizenship legislation determines which elements are liable to social insurance contributions, whereas the amounts and definitions of those elements depend on the employer’s regulations.

    The legislative regulations from each of the GCC countries are taken into account when calculating social insurance, based on whether the employer is in the government or private sector.

    The employer and employees rates, any minimum or maximum contributory salaries, whether or not the contributory salary is fixed for the year, or is variable and how social insurance is calculated when an employee is hired or terminated are predefined.

    If required the amount of the contributory salary can be overridden at the person level.

    If this amount is not entered at the person level, you can define a formula that will be used to calculate the contributory salary at the legal entity level.

    Finally, if neither individual override, nor legal entity formula, are defined, the contributory salary uses the value of earnings elements that are subject to social insurance. These elements are identified through the secondary classification and feed the balance Subject to Social Insurance.

    When required the contributory salary is set once a year in the employee’s first payroll run of the year. If there is a need to correct the contributory salary that has already been set, then you can use the Social Insurance Contributory Salary Adjustment component of the Employee Social Insurance Details calculation card. The contributory salary will be modified in the next, normal, payroll run.

    TIPS AND CONSIDERATIONS

    Gratuity Calculations

    When a person comes to the end of their service of employment in the private sector they could be entitled to an amount of gratuity, calculated based on certain criteria, regardless of their nationality.

    If the gratuity to be paid indicator is set to true at the legal entity level then a gratuity accrual amount will be calculated each month, and an actual gratuity payment will be calculated and paid on termination.

    The entitlement and calculation of gratuity amounts are based on the date of commencement and length of service of the employee, and any reference formula defined at the legal entity level.

    The number of days that are to be used in the gratuity calculation, based on completed service, are predefined.

    The monthly gratuity accrual is triggered by the presence of the element gratuity accrual initiator and is the amount that an employee would be entitled to, if they were terminated at the end of that month and if they were eligible for payment. This amount will not be paid but is for information only and is available to be transferred to GL.

    The actual gratuity payment on termination is triggered by the presence of the employee gratuity details calculation card.

    If the employee was summarily dismissed (or left work to avoid such dismissal) then no gratuity will be paid.

    Create Calculation Card

    Create a calculation component for the court order that you have received. The names shown will be the same as the elements that were created, and the reference code is the court order reference on the court order notification.

    Create Calculation Card: Calculation Component

    Edit the calculation component details.

    The amount is the amount to be deducted as given on the court order notification. If there is a total sum to be recovered this can be recorded as the total owed.

    Frequency refers to the unit of time the amount entered is to be calculated as, for example if the court order notification is given as an amount per day, or an amount per month, frequency should be selected as either daily or calendar month.

    The partial deduction rule allows you to specify how to manage any arrears for the court order if there insufficient funds for the court order to be deducted.

    The payment issuing authority is the name of the organization created for this purpose.

    Date of issue must be recorded as the date on the court order notification, and date of receipt can be used to record when the court order notification was received. If there are multiple court orders of the same type they will be processed in the order of the date of issue, taking into account when they were received.

    The order amount payee details must be used to record the third party payee who should receive the court order deduction amount.

    Create Calculation Card: Calculation Component Details

    To add additional court orders add new components, and component details to the court order calculation card. If there is a requirement for multiple court orders of the same type the reference code will be used to differentiate between them.
