GPCHE: Family Allowance Elements Should Follow Same Proration Rules For Standard Elements (Doc ID 2818898.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 02, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Global Payroll Switzerland - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Family allowance elements should follow same pro-ration rules for standard elements.

The different family allowance elements are calculated based on a fix monthly amount that is given in the table GPCH_CA_STAT_S2.
Depending on the HIR/TER-date and several other dates in the table GPCH_CA_DATA2, this monthly amount can be calculated «pro-rata».

In case of differential family allowance in addition to family allowance of another canton (CH_CA_30) or another country (CH_CA_31) the same rule must be applied.
The only difference is that the 100%-value is not to be taken from the table GPCH_CA_DATA2.
The 100% base for these cases is stored in GPCH_CA_DATA2.GPCH_CA_FOR_AMOUNT.

Actually the calculation doesn’t do the pro-rata and so need to force the amount by adding a new situation to the GPCH_CA_DATA table.
This is OK for pay roll but it then brings another problem : the RAFam-Report gives wrong information (GPCHAL05.sqr).

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Navigate to: Workforce Administration > Job Information > Job Data
- a HIR/REH or TER/RET-Date of type mid-month (JOB-data)
- an EFFDT that starts the first family allowance in mid-month
- a reduced begin date (GPCH_CA_RED_BGN_DT) in mid-month
- a reduced end date (GPCH_CA_EDU_END_DT) in mid-month
