    Hi,

    We are trying to reduce maximum vacation accrual from 2x to 1.5x for 2018. Is there anyway by which we can automate the process without having to manually calculate the time accruals for each employee?

    Following are the rules for the accruals:

     

    Maximum Vacation Accruals for Employees

    Effective January 14, 2018, the maximum vacation hours that you will be allowed to carry in your vacation bank will be one and one-half times (1.5x) your annual vacation entitlement vs. the current accrual maximum of two times (2x) your annual vacation entitlement.

     

    Here is how the vacation accrual change will work:

    • Employees will continue to have a maximum accrual rate of 2x their annual vacation entitlement until January 13, 2018.

       

    • Effective January 14, 2018, the maximum accrual will be 1.5x the employee’s annual vacation entitlement. Employees above that threshold will stop accruing vacation time until their balance falls below 1.5x their annual vacation entitlement.

       

    • Vacation accruals above the 1.5x threshold, as of January 14, 2018, will go into a Reserve Sick Bank.  The Reserve Sick Bank can only be used for sickness in excess of 5 consecutive days when an employee is on an approved Leave of Absence for his/her own illness.  In this circumstance, time will be taken from the regular sick bank for the first 5 days and then the balance of time will be taken from the Reserve Sick Bank.

    By doing the above process will it cause any loss of accruals of the employees from previous year? What will be the right way to implement it in Lawson?

    Your help will be really appreciated

    Thank you

    I don't see why it would. You will be removing the excess amount and placing it into a new plan structure.

    My suggested solution is as below:

    The solution I can think of is we can update existing plan structure, create new rule table and add limit rules(biweekly or annually) for 1.5x maximum vacation accruals in Lawson Absence Management and then use LP140 to calculate accrual based on new limit, apply new limit rules and subtract usage. LP140 would do all the calculations and this way we can avoid the manual calculation for each employee.

     

    But what about the Vacation accruals above the 1.5x threshold, as of January 14, 2018, will go into a Reserve Sick Bank.  How to send that to Reserve Sick Bank? How is that to be calculated?

     

    Thanks
