Over-accruals & Over-payments Leave is often entered and then not reduced when the employee works more regular hours than normal Example #1: Jane Exempt Use Review Paycheck and Leave Accrual Balances for detail The Fix: Change directly in elapsed/punch time *or* complete form and submit to payroll if over 60 days
Expanded Paycheck Screen for Nonexempt Employee
Service Hours should read 1680 for 4/7/2005 (use the spreadsheet to confirm numbers) How would you fix this issue? Debra Nonexempt44552233
Under-accruals & Under-payments LOAs, failure to enter sick, vacation, or regular pay are common causes Example #1: Jorge Exempt Use Review Paycheck and Leave Accrual Balances for detail The Fix: Change directly in elapsed/punch Time *or* complete form and submit to payroll if over 60 days
Farouk Nonexempt55551212 Service Hours should read 1680 for 4/7/2005 (use the spreadsheet to confirm numbers) Is there a problem here?
Payroll Adjustments Incorrect pay check needs to be corrected Example: Steve Nonexempt Use Review Paycheck and Leave Accrual Balances for detail The Fix: Change directly in elapsed/punch Time *or* complete form and submit to payroll if over 60 days
Steve Nonexempt 33332222 Service Hours are off by 8 hours
Steve Nonexempt33332222 Adjustment corrected the service hours
Double Check Payroll Adjustments A quick check of the screens can ensure all the data is listed correctly after the payroll adjustment Example: Carla Nonexempt Carla entered sick leave without reducing time worked, leading to an over-payment
Prior 60 Day Request Form Form for payroll to make adjustments to pay and leave Examples: Overpayment (Jane Doe) Incorrect TRC used (John Doe) PeopleSoft system error (Gina Doe) Prior 60 Day Form versus the Balance Adjustment Form – how are they different?

Segregation of Duties Issued in Deans, Directors, & Department Heads Memorandum (DDD) on May 31, 2006 If possible, segregate duties such that job action (ePAF) approvers and time/labor approvers do not have access to payroll checks
Segregation of Duties When segregation of duties and role conflicts cannot be avoided, establish compensating controls Independent, documented review of the paylist (print, secure review & approval, archive approved paylist)
