0 Replies and 838 Views Lawson SSO and self service portal user relation  838  0 Started by  Ramesha I am trying to identify the relationship between employee and lawson portal user. As we know we can use lawson SSO servlet API to verify the user access to the portal. Is there any way we can get associated employee information like employee_id for this user login id from Lawson DB tables. Thanks in advance.

I was wondering if there was anyone whose company offers Traditional 401(k) option and Roth with Company Match If so, what system do you use to calculate the match We need to aggregate both types of deferrals for the matching calculation. Lawson cannot first add both types of deferrals and then apply the appropriate matching formula. So, I was wondering if anyone can share how they do it   thanks!

1 Replies and 1160 Views Seeking method to mass adjust accrual dates  1160  1 Started by  Kelci It could be that I'm spoiled by Oracle, which is the primary HRIS run by my company, but I simply do not get the way Lawson accruals work.  As an example, I'll use the most recent paycheck, paid today (1/9/15) for the pay period of 12/21/14 - 1/3/15.  Some people's accruals from this check post with a December date, and others post with a January date.  Is there a way to standardize the accrual post date so that they all just post to the same date, preferably the pay date

How are you handling making sure you have a printed copy of the document is turned in or kept on file. I believe the requirements are a minimum of 4 years. There is no notification, like address or direct deposit changes. You could turn on auditing for the fields and report those. But that is not the same as having a copy of the W-4.
