Symptoms

Paycalc generates Payroll Error 000044 for employees with after tax arrears balances when check does not have enough net to cover arrears.  When attempting to calculate the next payroll and the employee has minimal gross pay the system attempts to collect the entire arrears amount creating a negative net.  Users receive Error 000044 The net pay calculated for this check is a negative amount.

Customers have reported similar problems when calculating an employee with no earnings (such as an LOA employee) in order to get the appropriate deduction arrears, the system will create negative deductions and add this amount to net pay.
