Hours Display on check for non regular salaried earnings (Doc ID 802983.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 23, 2019

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Payroll for North America - Version 8.9 to 9 [Release 8.9 to 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

According to PeopleBooks for NA 8.9, hours for non-regular salaried earnings should display on the paycheck when the ‘Hours Distribution’ box is checked and job earnings distribution type is by amount or percent. Hours are found on PAY_OTH_EARNS, but no hours are displayed on paycheck.

PeopleBooks information:
================
Hours Distribution
Select this check box to distribute standard hours to a nonregular earnings code according to the parameters on the Job Data - Earnings Distribution page. This check box controls the distribution and display of standard hours to nonregular earnings codes for salaried employees whose job earnings distribution type is either by amount or by percent. The distributed hours are based on a proration of the employee’s total standard hours defined in the Job Data component (JOB_DATA).

These hours appear on Paycheck Inquiry pages and in the payroll registers. The system automatically processes and displays the distribution of standard hours to the regular earnings code, regardless of the hours distribution setting.

Note. For earnings codes with a payment type of amounts only or flat amount, clear the Hours Distribution check box. These payment types do not calculate or display hours.

For example, a salaried employee has 80 standard hours per biweekly pay period. The job earnings distribution information specifies a 50 percent distribution to a regular earnings code (REG) and a 50 percent distribution to a nonregular earnings code (STD). The STD earnings code has a payment type of Either Hours or Amounts OK.

If the Hours Distribution check box for the STD earnings code is not selected, 40 hours are associated with the REG earnings code, and blank hours are associated with the STD earnings code.

If the Hours Distribution check box for the STD earnings code is selected, 40 hours are associated with the REG earnings code, and 40 hours are associated with the STD earnings code.

Note. (CAN) To accumulate the hours that are distributed to nonregular earnings codes and report them as EI hours, you must select the Hours Distribution check box for those earnings codes. The system sets a salaried employee’s EI hours to zero if none of the earnings codes on that employee’s job earnings distribution page specify hours distribution. To maintain the integrity of EI hours processing and reporting, ensure that you correctly define the hours distribution definitions that are associated with each earnings code.


As per <BUG 11368946> the development team subsequently closed with the reason of 'Working as Designed' as we do not display hours on checks for salaried employees.
