Payroll

Global Payroll

Oracle Fusion Global Payroll is a high-performance, graphical, rules-based payroll management application. It’s designed to keep pace with the changing needs of your enterprise and workforce in order to reduce setup costs, administration, and processing time. It operates globally and consistently in every country supported by Oracle. It uses a highly scalable processing engine that takes advantage of the features of the Oracle database for parallel processing, resulting in optimal performance. In countries with payroll extensions delivered and supported by Oracle, the application delivers the calculations, tax reporting, and regulatory rules required to accurately process payroll and remain in compliance.

Value Definition Usage Rules

Associate a user-defined value definition to an absence or time element component using a new usage rules region on the value definition page.

Values Defined-by-Criteria Overrides

Use the calculation of rates based on an override criteria by using the value-by-criteria feature. The override value such as the override location will come from a value definition. A new field on the value definition will indicate this criteria that is being overridden.

Values Defined by Criteria Support for Other Units

Calculate rates for a unit, based on value-by-criteria. A rate definition can now be defined that will return a monetary value per unit based on the values defined by criteria information.

Rate Support for Formula

Use rate definitions based on a fast formula for complex rate requirements. The new HCM Rate Calculate Value formula type supports rules based on a worker's assignment, terms and payroll relationship attributes.

Override Payslip Availability Date

Specify an Override Payslip Availability Date when running the Generate Payslips process to provide a date to take precedence over the payslip availability date defined in the payroll calendar. In certain instances where an early payroll run is processed, by entering the Override Payslip Availability Date, an employee is able to access their payslip earlier than usual. For example, with this new feature, an employee would be able to access their last payslip before they leave the organization.

Payroll Processing Status of Time

View in the Time and Labor application the status of payroll processing for time entries that are entered and transferred to Global Payroll.

Note: For such time entries, you can view the status of approval and transfer too.

Compensatory Absence Payments As Of Accrual Date Calculation

Make absence payments for compensatory absence plans based on the date that the compensatory time was accrued. Select the absence accrued date value as the reference date when creating your rate definition to be used for the compensatory plan.

Expedited Payroll Processing of Retrospective Time Card Adjustments

Support the payment of late or adjusted time cards outside of your regular payroll cycle using the expedited payroll runs. Select the element entries, specific retro time entries, and earnings and deductions to be included in the expedited processing for the current period.

Use the new attribute on the time card to tag the time card adjustments for expedited payment. Also, you can mark these expedited time card adjustments to be paid through check even if the employee is normally paid by EFT. Employees without a tagged retrospective time card change are not included in the expedited  payroll run and such untagged changes are paid in the next scheduled payroll cycle.

Reporting of Units other than Time

Report balances corresponding to units other than time, such as mileage or payments per unit produced, in payroll reports that have separate sections for hours and days balances. Currently, several payroll reports show the hours and days balances for elements whose rate is a monetary value per hour and day, respectively. As part of the enhancement to support entering units other than time on timecards, these payroll reports have another section for balances corresponding to units other than time.

Payroll for the United Kingdom

Payroll for Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management for the United Kingdom supports country specific features and functions for the UK. It enables users to follow the UK's business practices and comply with its statutory requirements.

Support for XML Format Data Retrieval and Upload

Retrieve employee data from HMRC’s Data Provisioning Service (DPS) in XML format. You can retrieve all employee updates for P6, P6B, P9, and student loans SL1, SL2 notifications to update the employee records using this feature. You can also retrieve the NVREP messages generated as a result of either NINO verification requests or Full Payment Submission sent with missing or incorrect NI details. The process retrieves the XML messages, validates, and reports the inbound data. Once retrieved, you can upload the data to the calculation cards and employee records.

Processing Benefits in Kind Through Payroll

Capture data and process the benefits in kind through the payroll application as prescribed by the legislation.

The payroll process calculates the tax liability of a benefit for the tax period, instead of reporting it at the end of the tax year. You must confirm the benefits that you want to process through payroll in the tax year with the HMRC, and set up the benefits data for your employees.

A new Taxable Benefits calculation card is provided that includes calculation components related to each benefit. Use the appropriate calculation component and calculation component details to capture the benefits information required to calculate the tax liability.

XML Format for RTI Outgoing Files

Generate and send your NINO Verification Request (NVREQ) file in XML format to HMRC.

Legislative Updates for Tax Year 2018-19

Comply with required legislative updates for the tax year 2018-19 including statutory thresholds for tax, National Insurance, and student loans.

Benefits In Kind – Car and Car Fuel Rates for Tax Year 2018-19

Process car and car fuel benefits calculations through payroll with the new rates effective from 6th April 2018.

Payroll for the United States

Payroll for Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management for the United States (US) supports country specific features and functions for the US. It enables users to follow the US business practices and comply with its statutory requirements.

e-IWO Reference Code Enhancement

Augment the processing of inbound electronic income withholding orders (e-IWOs) through enhanced reference code generation.  The e-IWO process automatically generates and stores this code on the employee’s Involuntary Deductions card component.  To help prevent duplicate codes, it now includes the remittance identifier.

Expedited Payroll Processing

Streamline the payroll processing of time card employees through expedited payroll runs.  When an employee submits an amended time card after you have run payroll, use the new Expedited Payroll Flow to fast-track their payment.  This flow processes all Time Card category earnings you have marked as eligible for expedited processing.

Benefits

Benefits

Oracle Fusion Benefits is a complete, configurable and flexible global solution that enables organizations to successfully evolve and adapt to the unique needs of their workforce. The solution enables setup of traditional plans to highly complex plans that selectively target different workforce segments with different benefit packages. Self-service capabilities present the user with a ready to use intuitive guided enrollment process with contextual information and embedded analytics.

Restrict Historical Reporting of Life Events

Restrict how far back participants can report historical life events to enable better benefits processing. We have delivered a new field called "Past Event-Reporting Limit in Days" on the Manage Life Events page to achieve this, on a per-life event basis. If you want to allow self-reporting of historical life events, enter the number of days (up to 90). Otherwise, enter zero."

If participants are able to report more than one historical event, consider configuring collapsing rules.

Export and Import Benefits Objects Using Functional Setup Manager

Export and import life event collapsing rules and default benefits relationship configuration objects. During migration, take advantage of this enhancement by using two new services and the automated features of Functional Setup Manager.

Previously, you had to do this manually.

Define Rates at Legislative Data Group (LDG) Level

Define your rates at Legislative Data Group (LDG) level. This not only reduces the need to define individual rates for each legal entity that is part of a legislative data group, it also saves you time and effort in your initial rate definition. Take advantage of new fields on the plan, program and rates spreadsheet loaders: Plan Rate Level, Program Rate Level and Rate Legislative Data Group Level. You can also include your rates defined at LDG level when you import and export your global programs and plans using Plan Copy. Diagnostic reports have also been modified to include this new rate level to enable you to better troubleshoot any issues. Database items for rates and flex credits defined at the legislative data group level have also been added.

Related Reports and BI Analytic Information

Use the new subject area, Benefits – Court Orders Real Time, to answer your benefit court order questions, such as which dependents are covered in plan or plan types.

There are 17 new presentation folders, including subfolders:

There is also support for the existing dimensions of Date, Employee, Documents of Records, Plan Type and Plan.

Affordable Care Act Override Upload (United States Customers Only)

Override or add missing values in the 1095-C report, using the new ACA spreadsheet. You generate your 1095-C report for employees once a year, at the end of the year, but if you implemented Benefits midyear, a proportion of the data required for reporting might not be available. That’s because some of it may still exist in the legacy application. Using the new spreadsheet to override or add any values enables you to generate an up-to-date 1095-C report.

Compensation

Compensation

Oracle Fusion Compensation enables your organization to plan, allocate, and communicate compensation using the most complete solution in the market. Make better business decisions using embedded analytics and a total compensation view of workers, regardless of geographic location or pay package components.

Enable Scheduling of Grade Step Progression Processes

Streamline the scheduling of processes for grade step progression. You can run the Run Grade Step Progression and Synchronize Grade Step Rates processes without an effective date. If you omit the effective date, the application uses the system date for processing.

Enhanced Action and Action Reason for Grade Step Progression

Capture transaction details with the enhanced action and action reason capabilities for grade step progression. The Synchronize Grade Step Rates process uses a distinct action so you can more accurately determine the source of the updated salary record. Both the Run Grade Step Progression and Synchronize Grade Step Rates processes enable you to indicate the action and action reason when you submit the process. This eliminates the need to update the progression grade ladder definition to identify action reason codes which may differ from run to run.

Synchronize Grade Step Rates in Manual Mode

Enhance your ability to process progression grade ladder rate updates for your workforce. The Synchronize Grade Step Rates process can now be run in manual mode, allowing you to view the proposed salary updates before they are applied to the workers' salary records.

Grade Step Progression Transaction Log

Troubleshoot issues and identify errors in grade step progression processes. When you submit the Run Grade Step Progression or Synchronize Grade Step Rates process, you can opt to create a transaction report that will be created as an output text file when a process is run. The text file contains detail for all the transactions and specifies error conditions that were encountered during processing.

Export Grade Step Progression Transaction Details

Review results of the Run Grade Step Progression and Synchronize Grade Step Rates processes offline. You can export the proposed or actual updates to assignments and salary records for offline review. Export error transactions separately for easy correction and resolution.

Enhanced Salary Basis with Salary Range Differentials

Create salary range differentials in the compensation work area. The application calculates an adjusted salary range (minimum, midpoint, maximum) based on the salary range differential profile linked to the salary basis. You can configure the salary range differential profile by location and can vary it over time using date-effectivity.

Manage Models in Workbook

Export Models into the integrated workbook, manage values, and import them back into the application.  Previously, model values had to be entered directly.

Improved Modeling Performance

Take advantage of the performance improvements to building and applying models to plans. The tree structure of model criteria when entering values is now flat. Users now see individual lines per criteria combination. 

Payroll

Benefits

Benefits

Oracle Fusion Benefits is a complete, configurable and flexible global solution that enables organizations to successfully evolve and adapt to the unique needs of their workforce. The solution enables setup of traditional 'one-size fits all' plans to highly complex plans that selectively target different workforce segments with different benefit packages. Self-service capabilities present the user with an out of the box intuitive guided enrollment process with contextual information and embedded analytics.

Improved Self-Service Benefits Pages

Take advantage of the new Relationship Start Date field in the simplified contacts page. Use the relationship start date field, instead of an effective date, to record the start of a relationship. Participants have a better understanding of a “relationship start date” than of a “contact effective date". The application uses the relationship start date entered to calculate the correct contact effective date for the participant, which enables them to be considered towards designation. This results in fewer queries and issues for the administrator to resolve.

Add additional train stops in your enrollments flow if required. Five additional train stops are available to enable you to spread across up to twelve plan type groupings. Not only can you add up to twelve train stops in your enrollments flow, but you can also use existing functionality to rename the train stops to reflect your benefits offerings, and to control their display.

Benefits Court Orders Enabled

Comply with court order legislation by using the new court orders functionality. Record and view court orders, such as US Qualified Medical Child Support Orders (QMCSO).  Life event triggering for Create, Update and Delete operations enables you to manage your court orders end-to-end, until they age out or you receive a release, with minimum administrator interaction.

Using the new functionality you can upload any scanned in financial assessments, or the original court order, for historical purposes. You can also record a worker as becoming eligible in the future – saving you from having to remember to go back and enter the detail when the employee does become eligible.

Once you record a court order, participants are prevented from unenrolling dependents from the plan during self-service enrollment. If they try not to enroll dependents during open enrollment, the application displays a message notifying the participant that they must designate the dependent and for which plan. They also receive a message if they try to select another plan to frustrate the court order, for example, or if they try to deselect the dependent designation on the existing plan.

Improved Purge Backed-Out or Voided Life Event Data Process

Delete potential, voided and detected life events en masse using the new parameter, Void Potential Life Events with Status, on the Purge Backed-Out or Voided Life Event Data process. The audit report and log file now contain values that enable you to get statistics on the total number of life events deleted, and to get information about the person numbers, life events deleted, life event name, life event occurred date and life event status.

Loading Enrollment Data

Upload enrollment data for participants and their dependents and beneficiaries more flexibly. Use the enhanced search capabilities on the Person Benefit Balance, Person Benefit Groups and Postal Zip Ranges and Service Area spreadsheet loaders. There is also an additional filter, Event, which enables administrators to upload larger volumes if required, and to prevent the spreadsheet from timing out. The new search filters for Postal Zip Ranges and Service Area are From and To for Postal Zip Ranges, and you can also edit the dates in Edit mode.

You can also copy rates in the Edit Rates spreadsheet where data changes to all the calculation method attributes are copied to rates in other legal entities. The conditions are that rates must be of the same benefits object, have the same display type and be of same calculation method.

Mass Close of Certification Action Items

Progress suspended enrollments more quickly.  You can now use a spreadsheet to upload participant, dependent and beneficiary certifications en masse. Previously, you had to close action items for every employee or participant when they provided you with proof, such as a birth, marriage or domestic partner certificate. Once you’ve uploaded the spreadsheet you can process the spreadsheet to close the action items using the Close Action Items process. Once the process completes, you can review the action items and see that the certificates have been provided. You can go to the Enrollments tab and see that the enrollments are no longer suspended.

Benefits Costing at All Tiers

Cost 100 percent of the rate of a benefit plan to the primary assignment in payroll, if required. You can now select Primary Assignment 100% in the Costing Method field on the Create Standard Rates page. If you use this costing option on these rates, identified by the legal employer, specific plans or elements, or other such criteria, you can allocate the cost based on the employee's organization and such.

You might not want to use the costing option if you have not set up cost accounts for employees or you only use payroll to generate element entries rather than process them. If you do not want to use this costing option, the cost at the employment level is still set at the payroll relationship level - you cannot allocate the cost based on the employee's organization.

Diagnostic Reports

Use the two new diagnostic reports, Affordable Care Act and Benefits Health Check. The Affordable Care Act diagnostics report helps you to check for Affordable Care Act eligibility for example, or to triage any other discrepancies. The Benefits Health Check diagnostic report helps you to diagnose issues with a participant's benefits details and other discrepancies. Select the option Run Diagnostics Tests from the Settings and Actions menu and search for the report to run and view.

Delete Programs and Plans with Hierarchies

Delete programs or plans with hierarchies quickly and easily in one go. You no longer need to delete all the child objects first and move up the hierarchy one entity at a time. You can delete programs or plans with hierarchies irrespective of how the program or plan was created, for example, via quick create, regular create or plan copy.  Being able to delete program or plan hierarchies quickly and easily is especially important if you want to purge test type programs and plans that will not be part of your final go live setup.

Compensation

Compensation and Total Compensation Statement

Oracle Fusion Compensation enables your organization to plan, allocate, and communicate compensation using the most complete solution in the market. Make better business decisions using embedded analytics and a total compensation view of workers, regardless of geographic location or pay package components.

Improved Salary Functionality and Pages

Search and manage salary basis using the streamlined Manage Salary Basis page. Use the new configuration option to control decimal display of salary attributes. View additional details of the element attached to the salary basis. Inactivate unused salary basis so that workers are no longer assigned. The salary page is now separated into landing and proposal pages, to provide a more focused view. You can now only submit one salary change transaction at a time. When using components with salary, the approval notification now displays the component values.

Populate Salary from Progression Grade Ladder Rates

Streamline entry of salary amounts for workers whose rates you define on a progression grade ladder. You can choose to include salary updates in employment transactions. The application uses the rates from the progression grade ladder to populate the worker’s salary record during new hire transactions and when the grade ladder, grade or step are updated on the assignment.

Enhanced Compensation Change Statements

Associate eligibility criteria with Compensation Change Statement templates. Enable administrators to generate statements and deliver to managers through the worksheet, and workers through self-service. Administrators can now access statements through Administer Workers.

Update information within Administer Workers to trigger or resolve alerts. Hide alerts for individual workers from managers, if desired.

Filter Worksheet Download Administrator Report

You can embed rich text, a compensation item, an item value, or a conditional statement to include or exclude these items. Use for both the online statement and the printable (PDF) statement.
