Agency Responsibility: Reporting the New Earn Code for Supplemental Location Pay

 

Supplemental Location Pay (BU 07 and 17)

For eligible employees, the agency must insert a row on the Additional Pay panel to add Supplemental Location Pay, effective 3/30/00, using the new earn code SPL.

The new earn code ASL (Adjust Supplemental Location Comp) has also been established to report an adjustment of SPL earnings in the Additional Pay panel. This code must be used, in addition to the earn code SPL, when an employee is retroactively hired, rehired, or returned from leave without pay to report the amount of the retroactive SPL earnings. It is also used to adjust SPL earnings when SPL is added, changed, or ended mid-period and the employee did not have a status change.

New Earn Code SPL Procedures

The following are the procedures for adding the new earn code SPL:

Insert a new row on the Additional Pay panel.
Enter the earn code SPL in the Earnings Code field.
Enter the effective date 03/30/00 or later (date the employee became eligible for the earnings).
Enter the amount of the earnings in the Earnings field based on the amounts stated below.

Putnam, Orange, and Dutchess $1,000
NYC, Rockland, and Westchester   1,500
Nassau, Suffolk   1,750

Enter an Earn End Date if the employee is currently inactive, on a leave of absence without pay, or became ineligible to receive the earnings (e.g.: Bargaining Unit change, location change). The End Date must be the last date the employee is eligible to receive the earnings. If an employee has returned to the payroll, the earnings should be restarted effective the date the employee returned to the payroll.
Click the OK to Pay.
Save the transaction.

Additional Rows for SPL Earnings:

The agency must enter an additional row(s) on the Additional Pay panel for the earn code SPL if the employee went on a leave with pay and was reinstated to full pay, or vice versa, since becoming eligible to receive the earnings. The additional row is required to increase or decrease the system generated biweekly compensation rate for this earnings.

Agency Responsibility: Reporting the New Earn Code for Additional Longevity Compensation Additional Longevity Compensation for Commissioned Officers in Bargaining Unit 17:

For eligible employees, the agency must insert a row on the Additional Pay panel to add Additional Longevity Compensation, effective 3/30/00, using the new earn code ADL.

The new earn code AAL (Adjust Additional Longevity) has also been established to report an adjustment of ADL earnings in the Additional Pay panel. This code must be used, in addition to the earn code ADL, when an employee is retroactively rehired or returned from leave without pay to report the amount of the retroactive ADL earnings. It is also used to adjust ADL earnings when ADL is added, changed, or ended mid-period and the employee did not have a status change.

New Earn Code Procedures:
The following are the procedures for adding the new earn code ADL:
Insert a new row on the Additional Pay panel.
Enter the earn code ADL in the Earnings Code field.
Enter the effective date 3/30/00 or later (date the employee became eligible for the earnings).
Enter the amount of the earnings in the Earnings field based on the amounts stated below:

After 5 years following appointment to Lieutenant or Technical Lieutenant $ 500
After 10 years following appointment to Lieutenant or Technical Lieutenant $1,000
After 15 years following appointment to Lieutenant or Technical Lieutenant $1,500

Enter an Earn End Date if the employee is currently inactive, on a leave of absence without pay, or became ineligible to receive the earnings. The End Date must be the last date the employee is eligible to receive the earnings. If an employee has returned to the payroll, the earnings should be restarted effective the date the employee returned to the payroll.
Click OK to Pay.
Save the transaction.

Additional Rows for ADL Earnings
The agency must enter an additional row(s) on the Additional Pay panel for the earnings code ADL if the employee went on a leave with pay and was reinstated to full pay, or vice versa, since becoming eligible to receive the earnings. The additional row is required to increase or reduce the system generated biweekly compensation rate for this earnings.

Agency & OSC Responsibility: Longevity Compensation Increase

Longevity Compensation (Bargaining Unit 07 and 17):

Longevity Compensation (LGC) is increasing, effective 3/30/00, as follows:
For eligible employees in Bargaining Unit 07 with service from 21 up to 25 years, the increase is $275 per year.
For eligible employees in Bargaining Unit 17 with service from 21 up to 25 years, the increase is $50.00 per year.

Since the agency is unable to correct the amount of the LGC earnings that currently exists on the Additional Pay panel, OSC will manually update the existing row(s) with the increased LGC amount.

The agency must identify and notify OSC of employees who are eligible for an increase in LGC earnings, the applicable effective date(s) (3/30/00 and/or a later date), and the new longevity amount. This list must be faxed to the Salary Determination Unit by the agency submission deadline for pay period 2.

For eligible employees, OSC will increase the LGC earnings on the Additional Pay panel in pay period 2 based on the information supplied.

OSC Action: Specialty Pay and Shift Pay Increases Specialty Pay and Shift Pay Increases:

The rates for the following earn codes reported in the Time Entry panel have been changed due to the increases in specialty pay and shift pay.

Automatic Retroactive Adjustments Automatic Retroactive Adjustments Due to Salary and Additional Pay Increases:
Retroactive adjustments will be calculated automatically based on the increased salaries and the additional pay amounts for Location Pay (LOC), Supplemental Location Pay (SPL), Premium Overtime (PRO), Command Pay (COM), Longevity Compensation (LGC), Additional Longevity Compensation (ADL), and State Police Straight -time Payment (SPS). A list of the earn codes for which an automatic retroactive adjustment will be calculated is attached (Attachment C).
Agency Responsibility: Retroactive Adjustments

Retroactive Adjustments for Miscellaneous Earnings Reported in the Time Entry Panel:
Earnings that will not be retroactively adjusted are those earnings that are calculated automatically each pay period based on a fixed amount, such as additional shift compensation (AS3 and AS4).

Earnings that are reported using an override code, such as Regular Salary Override (RGO) and Overtime Override (OTO), will not be retroactively adjusted.

Earnings that are reported as a flat amount, such as Adjustment (ADJ), will not be retroactively adjusted.

Attached is a list of earn codes that must be adjusted by the agency. The procedure for reporting the agency calculated adjustment(s) is stated later in this Bulletin.

Retroactive Adjustments for Increased Earnings on the Additional Pay Panel:
The agency must submit the retroactive adjustment when the following conditions exist on the employee’s Additional Pay panel:
If the earn codes Adjust Location Pay (ALP), Adjust Longevity Compensation (ALG), Adjust Command Pay (ACM) or Adjust Premium Overtime (APO) were previously reported when an employee was retroactively Hired, Rehired, or Returned from Leave with no pay, the agency must calculate and report the adjustment of earnings.
If the earn codes Adjust Location (ALP), Adjust Longevity Compensation (ALG), Adjust Command Pay (ACM) or Adjust Premium Overtime (APO) were previously reported because the earnings was started or ended mid pay period, the agency must submit the adjustment of earnings. The system will automatically adjust LOC, COM, PRO, and LGC in full pay periods based on the employee’s status on the last day of the pay period.

Additional Instructions for Retroactive Adjustments:
The agency must calculate the retroactive adjustment when the following conditions exist in the employee’s record. OSC will assist the agency in identifying affected employees in pay period 2, so that the employee receives the correct adjustment.

RGS Previously Submitted as a Negative amount
The earn code RGS will be automatically adjusted. However, if the RGS is submitted as a negative amount, the system calculates the adjustment incorrectly. Therefore, the agency must calculate the appropriate adjustment and notify OSC of the corrected amount in pay period 2. OSC will correct the amount of the retroactive adjustment to reflect the appropriate amount of earnings.
RGS Previously Submitted Using Partial Days
The earn code RGS will be automatically adjusted based on full days only. For example, if 1.5 days was previously submitted, the system will adjust for 2 days. The agency must calculate the appropriate adjustment for all RGS earnings previously reported using partial days and notify OSC of the corrected amount in pay period 2. OSC will correct the amount of the retroactive adjustment to reflect the appropriate amount of earnings.
RGS Previously Submitted Using a Date Range that Exceeds the Number of Days Reported:
If the agency reported a date range that exceeded the number of days of RGS, the system will calculate the adjustment of earnings based on the number of work days within the date range. The agency must calculate the correct adjustment amount for the RGS earnings and notify OSC of the corrected amount in pay period 2. OSC will correct the amount of the retroactive adjustment to reflect the appropriate amount of earnings.
Earnings that will be adjusted automatically when the dates previously submitted overlap the effective date of a salary and/or additional pay increase
:
If the earnings dates reported on a single line in a previous pay period on the Time Entry panel overlap the effective date of a salary or additional pay increase, the retroactive adjustment for the earnings will be calculated using the salary and/or the additional pay amount(s) in effect on the date reported as the Earn End date. The agency must calculate the retroactive adjustment when an earn code was previously submitted and the dates overlap the effective date of a salary and/or additional pay increase and notify OSC of the appropriate amount in pay period 2. OSC will correct the amount of the retroactive earnings.
The earn code OVP (overpayment) was reported in the Additional Pay panel since the effective date of an increase:
If the earn code OVP was reported to recover an overpayment since the effective date of an increase, the agency must calculate the retroactive adjustment and notify OSC of the appropriate amount in pay period 2. OSC will correct the amount of the retroactive earnings.
An AC230 was submitted to reduce earnings previously overpaid since the effective date of an increase:
In most cases, AC230's are not considered when automatic retroactive adjustments are calculated by the system. If an AC-230 was processed since effective date of the employee’s salary and additional pay increases, the agency must calculate the adjustment and notify OSC of the appropriate amount of the retroactive earnings in pay period 2.
Negative Retroactive Adjustment
Retroactive adjustments will be calculated based on the employee’s status since the effective date of the salary and additional pay increases. If an employee had a retroactive action reported on the Job Data panel or the Additional Pay panel since the effective date of the increases which resulted in an overpayment that was not recovered automatically by the system, the system will again attempt to try to recover the overpayment when the raise is processed. In many cases, the overpayment has already been recovered using the earn code OVP or by returning the check to OSC.

OSC will contact the agency in pay period 2 regarding all negative adjustments calculated by the system. The agency must notify OSC of the appropriate action.

Agency Procedure: Reporting Adjustments Due to Raise Processing The earn code AJR must be used to report all retroactive adjustments that are necessary as a result of the increases in Salary, Additional Pay, Additional Shift Compensation, and Specialty Pay.

Earn Code AJR Adjust Raise
Earnings Begin Date First date to be adjusted
Earnings End Date Last date to be adjusted
Amount Total adjustment amount (may be negative, if recovering overpayment)
Comments Enter explanation of adjustment calculation*

* In lieu of comments, the agency may submit worksheets to OSC.

Note: Although not required, the agency may enter more than one AJR transaction if more than one earnings is being adjusted, provided the earnings begin and end dates are not the same.

Reveal Reports and Agency Responsibility The following Reveal reports will be available for agency review after the raise is processed in pay period 2.
