New Earnings Code
OSC has created a new earnings code to process the repayment of the SCF CSEA DRP reductions:
|Additional Pay Earnings Code||Description|
|D7F||Final SCF DRP Repayment|
OSC will insert a row on the Additional Pay page for each record number in which the sum of the employee’s gross earnings YTD for Earnings Codes D1F, R1F, D2F, D3F, D4F, R4F, D5F and D6F for calendar year 2011 and greater is less than zero (0).
The inserted row on the Additional Pay page will be set up as follows:
|Effective Date:||Pay Period Begin Date as noted above for the employee’s Pay Cycle/Pay Period Type|
|Goal Amount:||The sum of gross earnings YTD for Earnings Codes D1F, R1F, D2F, D3F, D4F, R4F, D5F and D6F for calendar year 2011 and greater for this record number (entered as a positive amount).|
|Earnings:||If the employee’s Payroll Status is equal to Active, Leave With Pay or Leave of Absence on any record number, the Earnings field is equal to the Goal Amount for this record number divided by 39 and rounded up to the next cent.
If the employee’s Payroll Status is equal to Terminated, Retired or Deceased on all record numbers, the Earnings field is equal to the Goal Amount for this record number.
In each subsequent pay period through the end of the repayment of the SCF CSEA DRP reductions, OSC will review the Additional Pay records using Earnings Code D7F of each employee who has not received repayment of all SCF CSEA DRP reductions. If the employee’s Payroll Status is equal to Terminated, Retired or Deceased on all record numbers, OSC will pay the balance of SCF CSEA DRP reductions in each record number.
OSC will insert a row on the Additional Pay page for each record number as follows:
|Effective Date:||Pay Period End Date for the employee’s Pay Cycle/Pay Period Type for the pay period being processed|
|Goal Amount:||Carried forward from previous row|
|Earnings:||The difference between the Goal Amount and Goal Balance.|
Beginning in the pay periods noted above, agencies must not submit any transactions related to the SCF CSEA Deficit Reduction Plan including transactions to process a repayment.
