Effective Date Frequency Rules Do Not Work (Doc ID 1173386.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 05, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Payroll - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Problem Statement:

Effective Date Deduction Frequency Rules are not working.  A recurring deduction is set up in the frequency rules to take the deduction from the bi-weekly payroll in periods 1 and 2.   No deduction should be taken if there are 3 paychecks in the month.  The frequency rule is set up as "Effective Date".

Does it have to do with setting the FREQ_RULE_WHOLE_PERIOD parameter to Y?

Steps to Reproduce:

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Run quick pays for full month
  2. Note that deduction is taken out in the 3rd paycheck, when it is defined to only apply to paychecks 1 and 2.


Application of HRMS 11i Family Pack K RUP 5 patch or HRMS R12.0 RUP 8 patch.
