6 6 Payroll Update What Does this Mean? If an employee has an active job at UConn (empl_rcd 0) and a second active job at OSC (empl_rcd 1) that is designated as primary: The W2 will be sent to OSC

7 7 Payroll Update Reminder - Name Format for Year-End Reporting The IRS requires that suffixes (JR, SR, etc.) not get stored within the last or first name fields via the W2’s or on the outbound IRS files. When hiring an employee, please do not store suffixes within the first or last name fields on personal data via the name history page. Suffixes should be stored within the suffix field on personal data.

14 14 Human Resources Update Human Resources Tickets, Continued Tips on logging tickets, continued When logging a ticket, please do not also contact a member of the support team. This creates confusion because a support team member may be working on the or phone call while another member is working on the ticket. Supply supporting documentation if different from normal processing (example: a stipulated agreement). DAS has updated the transfer and rehire request form to include Employee Class.

15 15 Human Resources Update Leaves of Absence If changing the type of leave an employee is on, users must reinstate between each leave in order for benefits to process correctly. If terminating an employee while on a leave of absence, users must also reinstate the employee prior to termination in order for benefits to process correctly. When entering a paid or unpaid leave of absence, verify the dates on the timesheet match the dates in job data.

29 29 Human Resources Update Benefit Service Date – Part Time NP-3 Employees Benefit Service Date Date field used for vacation accrual Business rules for part time NP-3 have been removed from this date field because those employees are calculated as though they are full time. Agencies will need to manually calculate the individual employee’s date for correct calculation. If employees are due additional vacation time, agencies will need to add those days to their timesheet.

30 30 Human Resources Update FLSA Status DAS is reviewing the FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act) statuses on the Job Code table. Establishing or Reclassifying a position – FLSA default comes in from Job Code table. Hiring or Reclassifying in Job Data – FLSA default comes in from Position Data. If default does not meet the employee’s assignment, contact Help Desk for assistance. Each request will be reviewed by DAS.

31 31 Human Resources Update Position Data Monthly Position Status Report – corrected Excel format problems Appropriated column had a value but non-appropriated column was blank; non-appropriated got filled with the same value as appropriated. (Current values are reflected accurately.) If position row was vacant, Excel report filled in previous row’s incumbent. (Employee number and name will now be blank on that position row.)

32 32 Human Resources Update Position Data, Continued Monthly Position Status Report – corrected Report (PDF) format problems In both report and Excel format, some parts of split funding were not being captured to reflect 100% FTE. (Now reflecting accurately.) On the PDF report, FTE detail, sub totals and totals were rounded to two decimal places before displaying. This may have caused errors in totals if the position had split funding. (Now the report displays to three decimal places for accurate totaling.)

33 33 Human Resources Update Position Data, Continued Monthly Position Status Report – One final issue Multiple incumbent positions report only the first incumbent rather than all position incumbents as intended.
