Goal

For AU Legislation Retro Pay and Payroll run ending in error with the following error .
Error was encountered when processing Element Type Tax Information.The calculated taxable weekly earnings is -342.01. Tax cannot be calculated for negative earnings.


My question basically is why should the payroll error out when the taxable earnings go negative.
There can be a scenario where in the employee goes on a unpaid leave from last pay period hence the retro brings in a negative pay.
