13 13 Time & Labor Update New Leave Plans Three new leave plans have been created:  Sick - SNOACC  Vacation - VNOACC  PL – PNOACC These plans allow employees to use leave time, but no accruals will be earned Accruals must be manually entered on the Weekly Elapsed Time page using the add TRCs: SKAA, VAA and PLAA.

14 14 Time & Labor Update PT Accrual Calculation Each month the accrual process is run for all employees and the full time accrual amount is credited. During a separate process, the Part Time Accrual calculations are run and the full time accrual is reduced to the appropriate amount PT Accruals are based on one of two criteria: Scheduled Hours or Hours Worked The calculation based on Scheduled Hours looks at the Schedule the employee is enrolled in and compares it to what a full time person in the employee’s job code would work The calculation based on Hours Worked adds up the hours actually worked (REG and OVT) for the month, then compares that total to the full time hours for the employee’s job code.

15 15 Time & Labor Update Notes on PT Accrual Calculation The calculation based on Hours Worked is currently being evaluated to ensure that all applicable REG hours and REG equivalent are used in the calculation If a part time employee is in a Zero_Hours schedule and the employee is enrolled in a leave plan that is based on scheduled hours, no accrual will be given.

16 16 Time & Labor Update Leave Accrual Adjustments When the TRCs CCE or CAA are used, Time Admin must run before the time is available for the employee to use When PLAA, VAA, or SKAA are used, the time sheet must run through the accrual process before time is available to use. This could take up to three weeks. Check the Accrual Calendar on the Core-CT website for the accrual process dates.

17 17 Time & Labor Update Time & Labor Exceptions After Time Admin is run, you should be checking for Exceptions on the Manage Exceptions page. You can view exceptions by employee or by group. Self Service>Role Manager>View>Manage Exceptions Agencies should review and correct exceptions as they occur A Job Aid will be available shortly that has a list of the Exceptions you may encounter along with possible solutions Most of the Exceptions reported to the Help Desk occur when an employee has been placed on a Leave of Absence in Job Data and the Time Reporter page is left Active and/or the employee remains in a Schedule. A Job Aid for placing an employee on a Leave of Absence will be available shortly.

18 18 Time & Labor Update Time & Labor Exceptions (cont’d) When an employee is placed on a Leave of Absence in Job Data, you must also Inactivate the Time Reporter page and place the employee in a Zero_Hours schedule If you have not completed those steps, an exception will occur when Time Admin is run. The exception will say: Inactive Time Reporter Status.

19 19 Time & Labor Update Tips for Cleaning Up Exceptions View the employee status on Job Data, Time Reporter Data and Assign Work Schedule to see where the discrepancy is No time can be reported for employees on a Leave of Absence. If time has been posted, it must be deleted in order for the exception to clear When the employee returns from leave, Job Data, Time Reporter Data and Assign Work Schedule must all be updated Time Admin may have to run before the exception will be removed from the Manage Exceptions page The Adjust Paid Time page cannot be used to make record-only adjustments until the pay period to be adjusted has been distributed to the General Ledger.
