If an exempt person doesn't work for a day and doesn't have PTO then they don't get paid for that day, or if an exempt employee terminates mid-week, they don't get paid for the rest of the week.

If an employee is eligible for benefits on 2/1/2015 but doesn't actually enroll until 2/15/2015, the number of paychecks left isn't calculating correctly,it is calculating from their eligibility date and not from the date they are going through new hire enrollment. I had this fixed at my previous employer but I don't remember how I did it. The cycles start at 26 for the year. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

1 Replies and 1471 Views Charging Employee Benefits  1471  1 Started by  Laurie2014 Hi, Is there a way in Lawson to charge the employee's benefit premium (Health/Dental) to their home cost center For the employee recovery as well, we had to map this to 1 cost center, then run a PR295 to allocate this to the employee's home cost center. For our phycian based practices, we prefer to charge all the benefits to the employee's home cost center. Thanks!
