EPY: Retro Additional Pay Calculation is Incorrect with Multiple Mid-Period Pay Rate Changes (Doc ID 2697812.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Payroll for North America - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Retro additional pay calculates incorrectly for a mid-period pay rate change on a pay cycle that was originally processed with a mid-period pay rate change.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Set up an earnings code that is based on another earnings Code.
  2. Set up an additional pay for the employee using this earnings code with 'Prorate Additional Pay' turned off.
  3. Insert a job record with a pay rate change mid pay-cycle prior to processing the pay calendar.
  4. Create the paysheet and note that the regular salary is prorated but the additional pay is not prorated.
  5. Confirm the original paycheck.
  6. Insert a second job record with a pay rate change mid pay-cycle which triggers a retro request for the original pay cycle.
  7. Run the retro calculation.
  8. The additional pay new earnings amount is grossly overstated and as a result, the calculated amount of the current retro amount is not correct.
