Garnishment Elements Not Being Deducted for Some Employees (Doc ID 1437283.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 10, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (US) - Version 11.5.10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An Employee has three recurring Wage Attachments elements in a pay period.  Employee has sufficient funds in the pay cycle for the garnishment deduction. The total garnishment amount in that pay period is less than the 25% of the disposable income.  Still, one of the three Involuntary Deductions amount is calculated as zero.  When only two wage Attachment elements are allowed to process in the payroll run, both get calculated fine.

Why is the system not processing the third element?

 

 

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

 

Test 1:

Element Setup

PORT Fed Tax Levy 1
Category = Tax Levy

PORT State Tax Levy 1
Category = Garnishment

PORT Wage Orders 2
Category = Garnishment

Element Entries:

PORT Fed Tax Levy 1
Amount = 100.00
Attachment Number = Entered
Total Owed = 5076.55
Date Served = 01-DEC-2010
Processing Priority = 5250

PORT Wage Orders 2
Percent = 1
Attachment Number = NULL
Processing Priority = 5261

PORT State Tax Levy 1
Amount = 100.00
Attachment Number = Entered
Total Owed = 7365.74
Date Served = 20-SEP-2011
Processing Priority = 5250

Quick Pay

Element Selection:


PORT Fed Tax Levy 1, Port Wage Orders 2 and Port State Tax Levy 1 are shown as Processed in the run

SOE

Gross = 4656.54
Tax Deductions = 46.10

Fed Tax Levy 1 (Category = Tax Levy) = 100.00
Wage Orders 2   (Category = Garnishment) = 46.64

SOE does not show State Tax Levy 1 (Category = Garnishment)

 

Test 2: Only two Wage Attachment elements included in quickpay run.

 

We have not included the Wage Orders 2 (Category = Garnishment) element in the Quickpay run

State Tax Levy 1 (Category = Garnishment) shows the deduction amount this time.

 

 Test 3: Do not include Fed Tax Levy (Category = Tax Levy) in the Run.

 

State Tax Levy (Category = Garnishment)does not get calculated.
