|Subject||Cancellation of general deductions for certain employees who are inactive or on a leave of absence|
|Purpose||To explain an automatic cancellation of general deductions for certain employees for anticipated payments|
employees (and leave without pay) with active deductions in bargaining
units 02, 03, 04, 06, 18, 46, 47, 52, 66 and 67.
General deductions will not be canceled for employees on leave without pay with the reason code of Workers Comp Sup (WSP) or Workers Pt Sup (WPS).
Checks dated 07/13/00 for Institution
cycle employees who are inactive or on leave without pay with the following
06/29/00 or prior for Current payrolls
Checks dated 07/19/00 for Administration cycle employees who are inactive or on a leave without pay with the following effective dates:
07/06/00 or prior for Current payrolls
The rows will be inserted on June 30,
2000 for the Institution cycle and July 7, 2000 for the Administration
cycle. OSC will insert a row on the general deduction panel to cancel all of
the employee’s general deductions with the exception of the following:
404 TIAA Supplemental Retirement Annuity (SUNY)
|Health Insurance Deductions||If a transaction is received from the Department of Civil Service for a health insurance deduction, the transaction will be processed and the deduction will be taken from the employee’s check.|
When a return from leave of absence or
rehire transaction is processed, the agency must verify the employee’s
deductions on the general deduction panel and also verify the retirement
panel. This action is required regardless of bargaining unit. OSC is not
making any changes to data on the retirement panel.
For ANY changes to an employee’s job record, agencies must verify the general deduction and retirement panels and cancel or initiate appropriate deduction information. For example, if an employee has a position change into PEF from a CSEA position and the employee currently has CSEA dues and CSEA life insurance, the agency must insert a row to "end date" the CSEA deductions.
