Symptoms

FLSA recalculation for prior period issue when overtime hours of the same
  number of hours are repeated in the same prior pay period.
  
  Example:
  
  1. Employee receives overtime hours in period A. The employee has the same
  number of hours repeated twice. For example, there is PAY_OTH_EARNS line
  with 2 hours of overtime and there is a second line with an additional 2
  hours. In other words, the employee worked 4 hours overtime for the week,
  but the data was feed in on 2 different lines.
  
  2. The next payroll (period B) the employee receives earnings dollars for
  period A that causes a FLSA recalculation to be performed on period A. Both
  sets of 2 overtime hours are recalculated correctly. There are 4 total lines
  with 2 overtime hours (2 positives and 2 negatives).
  
  3. The 3rd week (period C) the employee receives a bonus for period A which
  causes another FLSA recalculation. Both sets of 2 overtime hours are
  recalculated correctly. The first 4 lines with 2 overtime hours are okay (2
  positives and 2 negatives). However, there is a 3rd set of 2 overtime hours
  (postive and negative) which is recalculating one of the two hour overtime
  entries using the contractual rate from the original check.
