The Pay Period Amount And Expected Amount Calculated Incorrectly In HR Processing USF Component (Doc ID 2690001.1)

Last updated on MAY 12, 2022

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Human Resources - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Pay Period Amount and Expected Amount calculated incorrectly on Other Pay page in HR  Processing USF component.

When Quoted Annualized Amount entered is 399.88 then pay periods should be 15.38 (rounded) i.e., 399.88 / 26 pay periods for 2020 = 15.38 (rounded). But the system is calculating the Pay Period amount incorrectly as 15.20

The Pay period amount * 26 is not adding up to the Quoted Annualized Amount. This is causing employees to get paid incorrectly. The Pay Period amount should be Quoted Annualized Amount / no. of Pay periods for that year. Please note that 26 pay periods cannot be hardcoded because there are instances where employees get 27 pay checks.

Example: gvt_quote_amt = 399.88, Pay Period amount for 26 periods should be 15.38 not 15.20 as calculated by below code (399.88 / 2087) * 80 = 15.2 pp amount and expected amount is also wrong for 26 pay periods i.e 395.2. User is expecting to receive 399.88 annual amount. This is causing the employees to get $4.68 less pay.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Workforce Administration > Job Information > HR Processing USF > Compensation Tab > Other Pay Information sub-page (link)
2. Enter Quoted Annualized Amount 399.88 then pay period amount calculated as 15.38 instead of 15.20
