When Clear Arrears is set to "Yes", instead of resetting the arrears to 0, the system tries to take the arrears out of the current paycheck.
Expected functionality: Clear Arrears should reset the arrears to 0 without deducting any arrears from the payroll.

Requirement to control and spread out how arrears can be taken out of pay.
i.e. cannot take entire check amount in the next period.

An example is a an employee that has a general deduction of $500, but not enough earnings to cover this deduction and it goes into arrears.

In this case the arrears balance is now = $500.

In the current business model, the employer works with the associate to deduct this arrears balance in increments so not all of the $500 is charged to the employee at one time.

The employer works out a deal to deduct $100 over the next 5 pay periods.

Pay period 1 - $100
Pay period 2 - $100
Pay period 3 - $100
Pay period 4 - $100
Pay period 5 - $100

After the 5th period, the deductions stop and the arrears balance is now completely paid.
