8 Replies and 4046 Views W4's and Employee Self-Service  4046  8 Started by  Terry P For those that have implemented ESS and the Tax Withholding form (W-4). 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.

2 Replies and 1161 Views W4 Exemptions  1161  2 Started by  mark.cook In Lawson there is a way to handle exempting employees completely from federal tax without PR having to manually exempt them  When we prepare the incentive payments, employees have the option of exempting the federal tax from the payment.  However, they have to contact PR, fill out manually a W4 and send it to them.  They then manually exempts the employee and then once the payment is processed has to reverse the exemption.  Is there an easier way to handle this

And we can't correlate the extra excess to anything, and it's only happening to these employees. We have a case logged with Lawson but not making any progress. Has anyone else run into this

9 Replies and 1770 Views ESS: Display more than 12 months of paychecks  1770  9 Started by  Mary Porter I did dig around first and didn't see this answered - is it possible to set up the ESS Pay/Pay Checks history to display more than 12 months of paychecks without making them go to the Year to Date and selecting the year I'm thinking I'll just reconfigure the bookmarks and the instructions if the 12 months can't be reprogrammed so they can get to paycheck history a little easier. And if it can't be reprogrammed then it gives us more ammo for getting MHC installed.

Shouldn't invalid dates cause the PA100 to throw an error Thoughts  Thanks.
