Quick Pay Errors for Employee with Retropay Deductions and No Earnings: Assignment has Negative Net Salary (Doc ID 1542453.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 05, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Payroll - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Quick Pay errors when an employee has retro deductions in a pay period when there are no earnings.  The retro deductions should go to arrears but do not.

Error was encountered when processing assignment xxxx
ERROR: Assignment has Negative Net Salary for Date Earned [DD-MMM-YYYY] Insufficient Earnings to take Pre-Tax Deductions for Date Earned [DD-MMM-YYYY]

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

1. Change is made retroactively to a deduction element that increases the amount of the deduction
2. Retropay Enhanced process is run and retro elements are created.
3. Employee is on his offtime when the payroll is processed so he does not have any earnings elements other than imputed earnings for this payroll period.
4. Quickpay errors with message that the employee has negative earnings.
