Fourth Screen

This screen is used to define the ways that vacation and sick hours may be accrued for your employees.  Each employee is assigned a Vacation Accrual code and a Sick Pay Accrual code (on the Employee record).  If an employee has a blank value for either of these codes, then no accrual will be done for that type of benefit (vacation or sick) and any desired values for vacation hours due or sick hours due for such an employee must be entered manually.  Otherwise, whenever a payroll check or a manual payroll transaction is posted for an employee, vacation and sick hours are accrued to that employee based on these codes.

 

Vacation Hour and Sick Hour Accrual Codes

Fields 1‑10

 

Name

Type and Description

Accrual Amount

6 numeric digits, with 4 decimal places (99.9999).

 

These are the number of fractional hours to accrue (add to) the Vaca­tion Hours Due or Sick Hours Due field on the Employee record.

Accrual Period

3 alphabetic characters.

 

Valid values are:

 

HR =  Per Hour

DAY   =  Per Day

WK    =  Per Week

MON  =  Per Month

 

This is the period of time the employee must work in order to get the accrued hours described in the previous field. For example, if the value here is DAY and the employee works one week, which is 5 days, then he will accrue 5 times the hours specified in the Accrual Amount field of vacation or sick hours due to him.

Maximum Accrual

4 numeric digits (9,999).

 

This is the maximum value that the employee can have due at any par­ticular time.  If you do not set a maximum on sick or vacation hours accrued for your employees, then enter 9999 for this field.

11.  Max Vac Hours Carried            Past Year‑End

3 numeric digits (999).

 

This is the maximum number of vacation hours for any employee that can be carried forward from one year to the next.  When the employee totals are cleared at the end of the year, by the Clear Employee Totals application, if an employee's vacation hours due are greater than this amount, it will be set equal to this amount, if field 13 below is Cfor calendar year. 

Max Vac Hours Carried            Past Year‑End (continued)

Otherwise, if field 13 below is H for Hire‑Date Anniversary, the program that posts payroll checks will detect when this field needs to be used to set down the vacation hours due to the maximum allowable.

12.  Max Sick Hours Carried            Past Year‑End

3 numeric digits (999).

 

This is the counterpart of the previous field, for accrued sick hours. However, this maximum is always applied at the end of the calendar year.

13.  Calndr Year‑End or                  Hire‑Date Year‑End?

1 alphabetic character.

 

Valid values are:

 

C  = Calendar Year  

H  = Hire‑Date Year

    

This field determines when the maximum in field 11 above will be applied.  If this field is C, the Clear Employee Totals applica­tion run at year‑end will set the accrued vacation hours due to no greater than the maximum.  If this field is H, the Payroll Check Postingprogram will detect if this is the first pay period after the anniversary of the employee's hire date, and if so, it will apply the maximum amounts in field 11.

14.  Garnish By % Of Net Pay

Y or N.

 

Defaults to N.

 

If garnishment percentage is taken from net pay, the calculation using the percentage entered at Garnish Ded (field 11 screen 2, Employee File Maintenance) will be performed after all other deductions have been taken out during Payroll Calculation.

15.  Validate Accounts From            PR Or G/L?

1 alphabetic character.

 

Valid Values are:

 

P   =  PR Account File

G   =  G/L Account File

 

Defaults to P.
