Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Foreign Leave Accrual Plan - Negative value in Leave Accrual or Entitlement Initialise zeros out balance.
If either the Leave Accrual or Leave Initialise elements are used as a 'take-up' and the Foreign Leave Accrual Plan is used to associate to the standard accrual plan, the leave accrual values will be incorrectly 'zeroed' out.


IMPORTANT NOTES
Test case is going to be for the Accruals
Entitlement Calculation = 01-MAY-2014 ==> 01-JUL-2014
Last Accrual = 01-JUL-2014


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
MAY 0.438 x 31 = 13.578
JUN 0.438 x 30 = 13.14
JUL 0.438 x 1 = 0.438
Leave Entitlement Initialize (01-JUL) = -100

Approximated Expected Balance at 01-JUL-2014 = -72.844


ACCRUAL PLAN SETUP
PLAN = L Annual Leave Salaried 160 Hrs
Net Calculation Rules:
  - E Annual Leave Cashout
  - L Annual Leave Absence
  + L Annual Leave Salaried 160 Hrs C...


PLAN = L Foreign Annual Leave Salaried...
Net Calculation Rules:
  - L Annual Leave Absence
  + L Annual Leave Salaried 160 Hrs...
Further Accrual Information:
  > Associated Accrual Plan = L Annual Leave Salaried 160 Hrs

IMPORTANT NOTE ... the act of associating the Foreign Plan to the standard plan, enforces the accrual calculation of the Entitlement down a different method.


STEPS TO REPRODUCE
DATE TRACK DATE = 01-JUL-2014

(1) Via Element Entries, initialize the element "Leave Entitlement Initialise" with -100 hrs

(2) Review Accruals for Plan: "L Annual Leave Salaried 160 Hrs"
     **NOTICE** that a negative initialization causes the Entitlement and Accrual to be "zeroed" out on 01-JUL
     <<< UNEXPECTED RESULT >>>

(3) For the Plan "L Foreign Annual Leave Salaried..."
     Change the Further Accrual Information flex setup so that
     > Associated Accrual Plan = <NULL/Blank>

Note: The affect of removing the association in the foreign plan with the standard accrual plan will make the balances correct


(4) Review Accruals for Plan: "L Annual Leave Salaried 160 Hrs"
     **NOTICE** that "Accrual Plan Element" and the "Net Accrual" has been initialized to -72.822
     <<< EXPECTED RESULT >>>
