November Maintenance Pack for 19D

Revision History

This document will continue to evolve as existing sections change and new information is added. All updates appear in the following table:

Date Feature Notes
25 OCT 2019   Created initial document.

Overview

HCM Cloud applications have two types of patches you can receive that are documented in this What’s New:

  • Release Updates (19A, 19B, 19C, and 19D)
  • Optional Monthly Maintenance Packs to each update

It is important for you to know what Release Update your environment is on. You can find this in your Cloud Portal.

This document outlines the information you need to know about new or improved functionality in Oracle HCM Cloud. Each section includes a brief description of the feature, the steps you need to take to enable or begin using the feature, any tips or considerations that you should keep in mind, and the resources available to help you.

In addition to this document you will also want to review the Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud Functional Known Issues and Maintenance Packs (Document ID 1554838.1). These documents identify bug fixes and possible known issues. You will also need to review these documents based in the release update version you are currently on or will be moving to.

Oracle HCM Cloud release documents are delivered in five functional groupings:

Suggested Reading for all HCM Products:

  • HCM Cloud Common Features (This document pertains to all HCM applications. It is the base human resource information for all products and HCM Tools.)
  • Global Human Resources Cloud (Global Human Resources contains the base application in which other application use for common data such as workforce structures and person information. Regardless of what products you have implemented you may want to see the new features for Global Human Resources that could impact your products.)

NOTE: Not all Global Human Resource features are available for Talent and Compensation products.

Optional Reading for HCM Products (Depending on what products are in your cloud service):

  • Talent Management Cloud (All Talent applications)
  • Workforce Rewards Cloud (Compensation, Benefits, Payroll and Global Payroll Interface)

Feature Summary

Column Definitions:

Report = New or modified, Oracle-delivered, ready to run reports.

UI or Process-Based: Small Scale = These UI or process-based features are typically comprised of minor field, validation, or program changes. Therefore, the potential impact to users is minimal.

UI or Process-Based: Larger Scale* = These UI or process-based features have more complex designs. Therefore, the potential impact to users is higher.


Customer Action Required = You MUST take action before these features can be used by END USERS. These features are delivered disabled and you choose if and when to enable them. For example, a) new or expanded BI subject areas need to first be incorporated into reports, b) Integration is required to utilize new web services, or c) features must be assigned to user roles before they can be accessed.

Ready for Use by End Users

New Reports for Latest Process (YTD) Reporting

Payroll

Global Payroll

Oracle 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.

New Reports for Latest Process (YTD) Reporting

You can now run the following enhanced reports to extract the Year to Date (YTD) payroll balances for large volumes of data:

  • Payroll Activity Report for the Latest Process
  • Statutory Deduction Register for the Latest Process

The new reports use a much lighter report template with enhanced performance and scalability capabilities to handle high volumes of data. You can now run the reports to produce CSV/text output that is easily imported into the Excel format. This is in addition to the PDF and Excel outputs we already support.

In addition to YTD, you can also extract payroll balances for the following:

  • Month to Date
  • Period to Date
  • Quarter to Date
  • Inception to Date

The above two reports produce the same output as running the existing reports with the ‘Latest Process YTD Totals Only’ field set to ‘Yes’. However, for large volumes of data, the enhanced report runs much faster.

Steps to Enable

The new reports are enabled out-of-the-box, but produce an output with Year to Date (YTD) balances only. However, if you want to extend the report to display one or more of the 4 additional dimensions, follow the steps below.

  1. Determine which of the 4 additional balance dimension types (PTD, MTD, QTD, and ITD) need to be reported and for which balances.
  2. Determine the appropriate balance group for each balance. This can be done by looking up the balance groups for the relevant report type under the Manage Balance Group Usages page. The report types for the new reports are the same as those of the existing reports.

  1. For each balance group usage above, determine the appropriate balance dimension name that has the relevant contexts. Use the existing balance group usage item for YTD as a reference. For example, if the balance dimension name used for YTD is Relationship Tax Unit Year to Date, you should use Relationship Tax Unit Period to Date for PTD.

  1. Ensure that the defined balances exist i.e., the balance is associated with the required balance dimensions determined above. This can be done from the Manage Balance Definitions page.
  2. Ensure that the defined balance is part of the balance group determined in the above step. This can be done from the Manage Balance Groups page.

  1. Add Balance Group Usage Items for the dimension within each Legislative Data Group and balance group usage determined above.

Tips And Considerations

  • Use the existing reports, namely Payroll Activity Report and Statutory Deduction Register for periodic reporting of balances. The new reports are meant for reporting YTD balances as of the last process run on or before the specified end date.
  • If you have configured changes to your existing extract definition, including but not limited to delivery options, report templates, and so on, then those must be reapplied to the new reports, if required.
  • For very large data sets, it is quicker to run the Text (CSV) format and then import it into Excel instead of producing an Excel directly.

Benefits

Benefits

Oracle 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.

Benefits Redesigned User Experience

Increase user satisfaction with the redesigned pages that now have the same look and feel on desktop and mobile devices. These redesigned pages are both responsive and easy to use on any device, with a modern look and conversational language. Clutter-free pages, with clean lines and just the essential fields, can be personalized to suit.

Benefits Service Center Redesigned

Redesigned Landing Page

Several aspects of the benefits service center have been improved to simplify administrator tasks. On the Home page, select Benefits Administration > Enrollment to open the redesigned Benefits Service Center page. On the My Dashboard page that opens, you can now see at a glance what tasks you need to address, and other useful information.

For example, you can see how many people have life events that need your intervention to continue processing, how many have documents that need approving, pending actions, pending bills, and other information.

Benefits Service Center Landing Page

You can use filters to just focus on the information that you want to see for the current week, the current month, or the next 3 months. You can even look back at the info in the last three months.

Filters You Can Use

On the landing page, you can drill down into a task for more details and actions. For example, click People with documents waiting to be approved. On the page that appears, click the participant’s name to open the summary page of that participant.

Another way from the My Dashboard page to get to an individual person’s summary page is to use the search box located on top of the page. You can also use search filters, such as person number, national ID to view specific results.

Unified Search

Redesigned Summary Page

On top of the summary page is a scorecard that lets you quickly see key benefits aspects about the participant, such as any life events that require your intervention, action items that the participant needs to complete, and documents that need approving.

Scorecard

As an administrator, you use the summary page to manage various details about the benefits participant, such as enrollment, life events, documents, and court orders if any. For example, you can scroll down to the Certification section (without having to leave the summary page) to see what documents need approving. To approve or reject a document, click Actions (…) and then select the action. You can also upload documents on behalf of the participant.

Certifications Section

Improved Cross Product Navigation from the Summary Page

The summary page also enables you to access frequently performed tasks from the side panel. Apart from benefits tasks, such as people to cover, billing, balances, and other tasks, you can quickly access cross-product tasks, such as employment info, person info, and compensation details. You can continue to get to these tasks using quick actions from the Home page.

How You Can Navigate to Other Tasks

Improved Navigation for Pending Actions

On the Summary page, if the scorecard shows that the participant has pending actions, you simply click the number to get to the page that shows you more details about what actions that the participant needs to complete. For instance, if the action item was about uploading a specific document to support their enrollment, you can view the status and approve or reject the document.

Pending Actions

Likewise, if the participant has an action item to add a primary care physician, you can navigate to that by selecting the pending action. Participants and administrators see the same user interface for the primary care physicians page.

Improved Navigation for Overriding Enrollments

Scroll down to the Enrollment section, click Actions (…) for the relevant enrollment row, and then click Override Enrollment to open the page where you can see review details of what you can override.

Tabs on the Side Panel

Improved Life Event Management

The improved summary page lets you manage life events more easily without having to leave the Summary page and open other tasks. Just scroll down to the Potential Life Events section to see a list of detected events. The Actions menu lets you quickly evaluate these events and use collapsing logic to determine the winning events when there are several events occuring on the same date. You can also add and modify potential life events from this section.

Potential Life Events

You also have the Evaluated Life Events section on the same page. In this section, depending on the life event status, you can back out, close, and reopen events, and override eligibility. You can also quickly see the enrollment opportunities that a particular life event offers to the participant.

Improved Navigation to Enrollment Results

On the Summary page, you can scroll to the Enrollments section to see what benefits has the participant enrolled in. You can view the enrollment results on the same pages that participants see during self-service enrollment. Depending on the status of the enrollment, you can also modify enrollments on behalf of the participant.

Compensation and Total Compensation Statement

Compensation

Oracle 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.

Data Obfuscation Support for Salary

You can now include the Salary object as part of the person information removal policies configuration. When you run the policy, it removes all of the salary information, including history, for the selected person.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

Delete is the only supported action for salary. This action permanently deletes all types of salary data, such as user entered, components, and rates-based salary components.

The profile option HR_DISABLE_PENDING_APPROVALS_CHECK_IN _HCM_DATA_LOADER controls whether you can delete salary information using HDL, when a salary transaction is pending.

Key Resources

For more information on the profile option HR_DISABLE_PENDING_APPROVALS_CHECK_IN _HCM_DATA_LOADER, see the 19C Workforce Rewards feature: Transactions Pending Approval Checked While Loading Salary.

Pending Approval Display in the Salary Section of Compensation Spotlight

You now have an indication on the compensation spotlight, whenever a salary record is pending approval. Depending on whether you are the initiator, approver, or observer, you can view the details of the submitted transaction and take action too. For example:

  • If you initiated the approval process, you see the approval notification and approval history. You can also withdraw the transaction.
  • If you are the approver, you can see the approval notification. You can also approve and reject the transaction.
  • If you aren't the initiator or approver, then the indication shows that approvals are in progress, info is locked. You can't see any details or take any actions.

Individual Compensation BIP Notification Changes

The way that updated award information appears in the approval notification was improved. Before, when a recurring award was updated, the notification showed the change in both the new and updated sections, which confused people. Now, the update is indicated in only the updated section.

When a recurring element is updated, it creates a date effective split for the element entry. The notification showed this split as (1) a record with an update to the existing value, and (2) a new record with new value and effective date. Approvers couldn't connect that these rows belong to the one update. With this enhancement, approvers can clearly see the change indicated as a single row in one section.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

The improved notification is part of workflow associated with these tasks: Manage Personal Contribution, Manage Compensation, and Administer Individual Compensation. It's generated for all the new transactions initiated after the upgrade, and notifications generated before the upgrade won't be affected.

Validate Progression Grade Ladder During Batch Processing

We added additional validation to the grade step progression batch processes that checks for errors in your progression grade ladder setup. The new validation alerts you to issues with the definition of your grade ladder, where you may not have added values for all of the attributes required for grade step progression. If your grade ladder fails the validation, the process ends in error and the details are saved in the log file, as shown in this example.

Batch Validations in the Log File

You need to fix the errors before your grade ladder can be processed for progression or rate synchronization. You can update a few of the attributes directly on the Manage Progression Grade Ladders page. Others you need to update using HCM Data Loader or HCM Spreadsheet Data Loader. The Resources section contains information to help you make these updates.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

To run the batch processes, you need to set a value for the Progression Increment attribute. The choice list on the Run Grade Step Progression and Synchronize Grade Step Rates pages doesn't include grade ladders where the progression increment isn't set. Exception: If your grade ladder is part of a grade ladder group, it will be included in the batch run even if the Progression Increment attribute isn't set. The batch validation log will indicate that the progression increment is missing, along with any other errors. The grade ladder won't be processed further.

For more information about enhancements to the grade step progression pages, see the Invalid Grade Ladders Excluded from Grade Step Progression Pages feature.

Key Resources

  • To update the attributes on your grade ladder using HCM Data Loader:
    • Refer to Integrating with HCM guide and the topics on Loading Compensation Objects/Guidelines for Loading Progression Grade Ladders
      • If your grades have steps, you need to update the Progression Grade Ladder object and the Progression Step Rate component of this object
      • If your grades don't have steps, you need to update the Progression Grade Ladder object and the Progression Grade Rate object
  • To update the attributes on your grade ladder using HCM Spreadsheet Data Loader, you can find sample templates and instructions in My Oracle Support Document ID 2569831.1

Invalid Grade Ladders Excluded from Grade Step Progression Pages

We updated the grade step progression pages so that only valid progression grade ladders are available for update and processing. Before this update, grade ladders created with the Manage Grade Ladders task appeared on the grade step progression pages. This caused some errors because the Manage Grade Ladders task doesn't populate all of the attributes needed for grade step progression processes. Now, you will see only grade ladders that are valid for grade step progression.

The Manage Progression Grade Ladders page will only show grade ladders where the progression increment attribute is set. If you created your grade ladder using the Manage Grade Ladders task, the progression increment won't have a value, and your grade ladder won't be available for update on the Manage Progression Grade Ladders page.

Manage Progression Grade Ladders Page Only Displays Grade Ladders Where Progression Increment Is Populated

The Manage Grade Ladders page in the Workforce Structures work area continues to show all grade ladders. You can access your progression grade ladders as well as grade ladders that aren't used in grade step progression.

Manage Grade Ladders Page Displays All Grade Ladders

We made a similar update on the Run Grade Step Progression and Synchronize Grade Step Rates pages. The Grade Ladder choice list on these pages now excludes any grade ladders that aren't valid for grade step progression.

Steps to Enable

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Set Plan Status During Start Workforce Compensation Cycle

You can now set the plan status to either Administrative or Open as a part of the Start Workforce Compensation Cycle batch process. Previously, administrator needed to change the plan status in Manage Active Plans directly after the process completed.

New Status Parameter

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

If you run the Start Workforce Compensation process again, the status field retains the status of the plan at run time. You can't set it to a different value for subsequent runs.

Change in Local Currency Determination Setup Behavior

You can no longer update the Local Currency Determination value after you run the Start Workforce Compensation Cycle process. This change prevents data corruption. To update the value, set all cycles to Closed or run the Back Out Data process.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

New Team Names in Personalize Layout

We changed the team names in Personalize Layout dialog box, Team Filter. The options Direct Reports Plus 1 Level Down and Direct Reports Plus 2 Levels Down now read as 2 Levels Down and 3 Levels Down. This is similar to the population switcher in the worksheet.

Data Security Implementation for Salary in HSDL

You can use the Upload Data As field to tell the upload process to load the spreadsheet data using either the elevated or logged in user privilege. When you select Elevated User, the process loads spreadsheet data for any assignment without regard to the logged in user's data security privileges. When you select Session User, the process loads spreadsheet data for only those assignments that the user is allowed to act on.

Template Definition

When the user doesn't have permission to load salary data, they receive an error message like: You can't perform the CREATE operation on this salary record because you don't have permission. Contact your security administrator. The exact message changes depending on the action the user was trying to do on the assignment.

When the template is configured to upload spreadsheet data as the session user, the template can then be shared with other job roles, such as Compensation Manager.

Steps to Enable

Make the feature accessible by assigning or updating privileges and/or job roles. Details are provided in the Role section below.

Tips And Considerations

  • The values in the Assignment ID LOV depend on the Create Privilege.
  • The business user job role that you assign templates to will also need additional privileges to use the HSDL functionality. For more details, refer to the Integrating with HCM Guide available here.

Role Information

These are the privileges that are checked while creating, updating, or deleting data. Ensure that the logged in user has them.

Type of Privilege

Data Privilege Name

Create CMP_ENTER_SALARY_DETAILS_DATA
Update ORA_CMP_CORRECT_WORKER_SALARY_DATA
Delete ORA_CMP_DELETE_WORKER_LATEST_SALARY_DATA

Tips And Considerations

For more information, review the Global HR feature in 17D: Seniority Dates Enhancements

Change to Budget Display in Worksheet When Using Manager Level Budgets

We reduced confusion when managers use manager level budgets and choose the 2 Levels Down or 3 Levels Down options in the population switcher. Managers now don't see budget information in this case.  They do see budget information when they use worker level budgets.

Manager Level Budgets Display

Also, as a part of this feature, administrators can now configure what options are available in the population switcher:

Population Switcher Options

You can disable 2 Levels Down, 3 Levels Down, or Direct Managers.  The Direct Managers option enables you to select a manager and see the team within the manager's worksheet without exiting to switch managers.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Import Market Composites

You can now create a mapping of internal locations to market segments using Market Segments in the Market Data work area. A market segment is a collection of HR locations. This allows you to group multiple HR locations under one survey composite market segment name. We provided the HCM Spreadsheet Data Loader (HSDL) for bulk loading of both segments and composites. Market composites are combined survey results. If you combine your survey results in spreadsheets, you can now load them using Import Composites. In the future, we will expose market composites in compensation business process flows.  

Use Market Segments to Create a Collection of Locations

Payroll

Global Payroll

Oracle 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.

Associate Base Element to the Results Element

You can associate a time card with a results element that has the costing definition. On the Element Summary page, you can use this new base element attribute to directly link a time element to the result element.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Originating Period for All Retroactive Earnings on the Payslip

You can now see the pay period of your retroactive pay on your payslip. Previously, the payslip showed the originating pay period dates only for retroactive standard/regular earnings that weren't a flat amount without an Hours input. The pay period didn't appear for any other retroactive earnings. Now, when bonus earnings in January are retroactively paid in February, the payslip in February shows the amount earned, time worked, rate of pay, the factor or multiple, and the pay period dates in January the bonus was earned.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

View Event Watch Lists and Actions

You can view Event Watch Lists and Event Actions, which you load using HCM Data Loader, on the new responsive page

You can configure Event Actions to submit a supported process or report, either immediately after the event occurs or at predefined intervals. For example, the HCM Rates Recalculation or Time Card Resubmission.

Using HCM Data loader, you can define an event action of type Time Card Resubmission and include it in an event watch list that looks for location changes.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

  • Manage Retroactive Payroll and Proration processes on the Event Groups page

Filter and Navigation Enhancements on Statement of Earnings

You can now use the Statement of Earnings page to filter the payroll results for an employee for a specific context such as viewing the results for a specific assignment or run type. Expand the region at the top of the page to display the following filters:

  • Assignment filter to view all payroll results for an employee for a specific assignment and payroll relationship. Generally payroll results are captured for a payroll relationship, you can now view the results for an assignment also.
  • Calculation Breakdown Identifier filter to view payroll results for a specific Calculation Breakdown Identifier. For example, if an employee has two assignments, both on the weekly payroll, but each assignment is on a different tax reporting unit, then two statement of earnings are generated for the employee for the weekly payroll run. You can filter the results for a specific calculation breakdown ID if you have defined the calculation breakdown ID for an appropriate attribute to filter the requisite results from both the statements.
  • Run Type filter to view payroll results for a specific run type. For example, if you have a run that includes elements defined to 'process and pay separately' the total statement of earnings results can be split into 'regular' and 'process and pay separately' by filtering for a specific run type. You can also filter and view the payment results similarly.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Payroll for Canada

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

Option to Create Ontario Employer Health Tax as Employer Liability

You can now generate the Ontario Employer Health Tax (EHT) as an employer liability in the payroll run by configuring the option for the Payroll Statutory Unit. Employers who do not qualify for the EHT exemption and therefore have only one rate set up, may elect to calculate the EHT liability in the payroll run. To calculate the liability in the payroll run, check the new "Calculate liability in payroll run" option. To continue to calculate the liability in the Provincial Medical Report, leave the option unchecked. Unchecked is the default.

Calculate Liability in Payroll Run Option

If you select the option to calculate liability in the payroll run, the following applies:

  • Related balances are available in the SOE, balance view, element entries, and so on.
  • The Provincial Medical Liability results element will now include Ontario EHT account information.
  • The element is available for costing.
  • The employer liability will appear on global reports.
  • The account is excluded from the Provincial Medical Report.
  • As the calculation is now processed for each employee, there may be rounding differences when compared with the liability calculated using total wages for the province, as processed in the Provincial Medical Report.

Steps to Enable

Use the Manage Legal Entity HCM Information task to access the "Calculate liability in payroll run" option on the Payroll Statutory Unit tab for Ontario.

Tips And Considerations

This feature enhances existing functionality.  It is assumed that the provincial medical account and rate are configured.  If the account is not configured, no liability calculations occur (please note however that the account is not required for Quebec).

The following rules apply if the “Calculate liability in payroll run” option is checked:

  • You can only configure this option if there is no exemption for the account. Each account must contain only one rate or you will receive an error if you attempt to select this option.
  • You can configure different rates for different effective dates.

Generate Prenote File

We have enhanced your direct deposit configuration by making it easier for you to handle prenotes. The new Generate Prenote File process creates your prenote EFT file and an audit report. Run this standalone process from the Checklist work area.

When you run the process, set the following values.

Parameter Description

Process Start Date

Process End Date

Enter a date range that captures any account number changes or creations on the employee personal payment methods.

File Reference

By default, this process gives the first file it generates on a given date the value A.  It increments this value alphabetically for each subsequent run on that given date.

Use this field to enter a single-character override.

Organization Payment Method

Identifies the organization payment method (OPM) requiring this prenote.

Process Configuration Group

Select a process configuration group if needed.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

  • The value you enter for File Reference applies to that run only.  For any other run you perform during that date period, the process uses the default sequence.
  • Generation of the prenote file is not dependent on any prerequisite payroll processes.
  • Generation of the prenote file uses the default payment source data configured for your OPM.
  • Your OPM prenotification amount must be 0 USD in order to be included in this process.
  • This process generates prenotes based on changes to employee bank account information.  It does not generate a prenote for a bank account that has already been verified with a previous prenote.

Select Earnings Type Basis for Involuntary Deduction Calculations

We have improved the accuracy of your involuntary deductions by enabling you to choose the earnings type basis for a rate deduction. On the person’s Involuntary Deductions card, use the new Earnings Type for Deduction Rate Calculations calculation value to define what earnings type to use as the basis for the calculation. Disposable Income is used by default in the rate calculations. 

Edit Calculation Values

You can choose gross earnings to override the default basis used. The payroll process uses this value for the calculation only. It does not impact the legislative rules the process uses to determine the maximum amount it can deduct.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

  • Any involuntary element you create in 19D or later automatically has this calculation value. To upgrade existing involuntary elements, use the Element Upgrade process. Follow the steps on recalculating disposable income, even if you have upgraded these elements for a previous release.

  • By default, order rates you enter on the card component use disposable income as the basis for calculations. To have the payroll process use gross earnings as the basis for its calculations, select Gross Earnings in the Earnings Type for Deduction Rate Calculations calculation value.

  • For the US Involuntary Deduction Data Calculation Component Detail, the Earnings Type for Deduction Calculations field has been renamed to Legislative Rules Override for Deduction Calculations.

If you have currently populated this field with Gross Earnings, remove this value and use the new Earnings Type for Deduction Rate Calculations calculation value on the card component.

If you have currently populated this field with Disposable Earnings, remove this value.

To identify Involuntary Deductions card components that have populated the Legislative Rules Override for Deduction Calculations populated, run this query:

select names.display_name

,rel.payroll_relationship_number

,compdef.base_component_name

,COALESCE( comp.context_value2, comp.context_value1) reference_code

,dir_information_char10 EarningType -- Flex:US Involuntary Deduction Data:Earnings Type for Deduction Calculations

from pay_dir_comp_details_f compdet,

pay_dir_card_components_f comp,

pay_dir_card_comp_defs_f compdef,

pay_dir_cards_f card, pay_pay_relationships_dn rel,

per_person_names_f_v names

where compdet.dir_information_category = 'HRX_US_INV_DEDN_DATA'

and compdet.dir_information_char10 is not null

and comp.dir_card_comp_id = compdet.dir_card_comp_id

and compdef.dir_card_comp_def_id = comp.dir_card_comp_def_id

and card.dir_card_id = comp.dir_card_id

and card.payroll_relationship_id = rel.payroll_relationship_id

and names.person_id = rel.person_id;

  • Use the Legislative Rules Override for Deduction Calculations field to override the legislative rules the payroll process uses to determine the maximum amount that can be withheld. For example, for a Georgia garnishment, the legislative rule states the maximum deduction that can be taken is the lesser of:

    • 25 percent of disposable income
    • Disposable income – (30 * Federal Minimum Wage)

If you enter Gross Earnings in this field, the process takes the lesser of:

  • 25 percent of gross earnings
  • Gross earnings – (30 * Federal Minimum Wage)

Salary Basis Enhancement in Compensation Subject Areas

We have made it easier to report on salary basis with the addition of attributes and metrics. These columns provide you with additional details on salary and pay rates associated with the salary basis. The changes are made across the Salary Details Real Time and Salary history Details Real Time subject areas.

The enhancements to the subject areas include the following:

  • Salary Basis - Legacy: This folder contains the existing salary basis dimension. It pulls up the salary basis data pertaining to the workers. It doesn't pull up the salary basis records that are in the system but not assigned to any worker.
  • Salary Basis - Complete: This folder along with its sub folders contains the salary basis information. This can be used to create a dimension only query on salary basis. All the salary basis setup in the application will be available for reporting.
  • Salary Pay Rates - This folder along with its sub folders allows you to report on the pay rate definition, and rate details. It also contains the metrics to report on rate amount, rate annual amount, rate annual full time amount and so on.

The attribute Salary Basis Legacy.Salary Basis.Grade is renamed as 'Grade Rate'.

NOTE: While using the metrics from these newly added folders, you must ensure that existing salary metrics are also pulled into the analysis.

Steps to Enable

Salary Range Differentials Enhancement to Compensation Subject Areas

We make it easier to report on salary details with the addition of dimensions to support the salary range differentials associated with the salary basis. Two dimensions named 'Differentials Details' and 'Differentials' are added to Salary Details Real Time and Salary History Details Real Time subject areas.

These dimensions are added under a folder named 'Salary Range Differentials' which in turn is a sub folder under Salary Basis - Complete dimension.

With this enhancement you can report on Salary range differential values which are multipliers applied to grade rates.
