Symptoms

 Possible pay calculation rounding issues for Salaried employees when:

  1. Earnings codes “A” and “B” are both set up on the Earnings Table as “Hours Only (Reduce from Regular Pay)” with the “Adds to Gross Pay” checkbox selected.

    When an employee was paid only these two earnings codes, in some cases, due to a rounding difference, -$0.01 was incorrectly generated for Regular earnings instead of $0.00.  For example: if the employee’s Regular earnings were $1000.00, and $333.33 was processed for Earnings Code “A” and $666.68 was processed for Earnings Code “B”, the residual -$0.01 was incorrectly generated for Regular earnings.  With the modifications, the program now correctly rounds the amount paid for Earnings Code “B” as $666.67, so that the reductions from Regular Pay for Earnings codes “A” and “B” do not exceed the Regular Earnings amount.

  2. Earnings codes “A” and “B” are both set up on the Earnings Table as “Hours Only (Reduce from Regular Pay)” with the “Adds to Gross Pay” checkbox not selected.

    When an employee was paid only these two earnings codes, in some cases, due to a rounding difference, Pay Calculation generated the following error message: 
    Message ID 000366:  The total of the earnings being processed for this check is a negative value. If you wish to ‘pay’ a negative gross check, you must do it is a manual check.

  3. Incorrect Retro Pay calculation occurs +/- .01 when Retro Pay is calculated for the Regular earnings that are calculated with hours of -0- and earnings of -.01 when the employee was paid entirely by earning codes set up to reduce from regular.
