Symptoms

Find that with Employees that have multiple jobs, and are enrolled in benefit plans that use Coverage Formula IDs with associated Annual Benefit Base Rates (ABBR). ABBRs have been defined at the employee job level. The Company is set up to issue single check for multiple jobs.

In this scenario, the Pay Calculation process incorrectly applies the first job's ABBR to the other jobs when deriving the paycheck deduction Calculated Base amounts.

Example:
Employee has 3 jobs. Empl Rcd 0 and 1 are on Benefit Rcd 0 , and Empl Rcd 2 is on Benefit Rcd 1. There is an ABBR of $10000 defined for Empl Rcd 0, and $50000 for Empl Rcd 2, but none for Empl Rcd 1.

When Payroll calculates, the calculated base amounts are incorrectly derived. For each job subsequent to the first job, it continues to select the $10000 ABBR for the first job regardless of the job that it is processing. The $10000 ABBR for Empl Rcd 0 will be incorrectly accumulated twice because there are 2 jobs falling under Benefit Rcd 0. For Benefit Rcd 1, the ABBR will again use the the $10000 from Emp Rcd 0, even though there is a separate ABBR of $50000 defined for Empl Rcd 2.

This was initially reported as a Canadian Payroll issue when the employee has different Wage Loss Plans defined on a multiple jobs. However, this issue is not specific to Canadian Payroll, and US Payroll is also impacted.
