Accruals at a Glance:

The following two flow charts show how the accruals are related to the Employee Master:

1. Accrual Set-Up

ACCRUALS AT A GLANCE EMPLOYEE SET UP:

2. Employee Set-Up

Getting started:

The first step in with tacking accruals in Munis is to create Accrual Types for the accruals you want to track.

Typically there are three types of accruals

Accrued-Accruals with a true balance or bank such as sick, vacation or personal time and FMLA.

Non- Accrued- Absences you may want to track that do not have a bank such as Jury duty or

conference or other meeting. Setting Up a non- Accrued bank allowed you to report all of your accruals in one report rather than going to multiple places to determine absences.

Comp Time- Tracking of comp time earned and used.

Accrual Types:

The Accrual Types are broad-category alpha numeric codes. Depending on the number of accruals you are going to track it’s typically a good idea to list them all out first in excel. Keep any accruals you want to report together in the same numbering range.

1. Open the Miscellaneous Codes program.

Payroll > Payroll Setup > Miscellaneous Codes

7. Repeat until all of the codes are created.

8. The screen shot below shows a common list of Accrual Types. Notice that FMLA is broken out as a separate Accrual Type.

Acccrual Tables:

After you create accrual codes, open the Accrual Tables program. Accrual tables define the ways in which accrual time is earned and used. You can create up to 999 accrual tables. When the accrual tables can be up to three characters numeric value. The numbers can be duplicated by accrual type. Because of this, it can be

7

helpful to give the number to the same group of tables. For example if the table for custodian vacation is number 950, I can use 950 for the sick and personal as well. This is not a requirement, but may be helpful for identifying table numbers in a list or reporting.

The screenshot below illustrates this example:

The accrual tables contain multiple tabs.

Accrual Limit

Use the Limit tab to define what happens when an employee reaches an earned time limit.

A limit is the maximum amount time an employee can earn for an accrual type. The program enforces limits when you run the payroll process, the accrual update process, or the accruals year-end process.

This table is asking you to determine at what time are the limits enforced. For instance some clients have strict limits that are never to be exceeded and others only look at the limit at the end of the year.

To add limit details:

1. Select the Limit tab.

Description

This list identifies the limit enforcement code, which determines how and when the program enforces employee accrual limits.

A-Via Batch Transfer – Evaluates and enforces limits when you run the Accrual Update program. The program transfers excess earned time to another accrual type. Define the accrual types in the Transfer 1 and Transfer 2 lists.

B-Via Payroll Transfer – Evaluates and enforces limits when you run the regular payroll process. The program transfers excess earned time to another accrual type. Define the accrual types in the Transfer 1 and Transfer 2 lists.

E-End of Year – Evaluates and enforces limits when you run the Accruals Year End

Processing program. Define how the program enforces limits in the Option list on the

End of Year tab.

F-Via Batch Lapse Excess – Evaluates and enforces limits when you run the Accrual

Update program. The program deletes excess earned time.

N-No Enforcement – Does not evaluate and enforce limits. Employees can earn any amount of time.

P-Via Payroll Lapse Excess – Evaluates and enforces limits when you run the regular payroll process. The program deletes excess earned time.

This check box, if selected, directs the program to use the year-to-date earnings amount to verify the limit, rather than the current available balance.

This restricts employee earnings to a fixed amount per accrual year.

This check box is only available for limit types B-Transfer or P-Lapse Excess.

This list indicates the accrual type to which to transfer excess earned time. This list is only available if you select A-Via Batch Transfer or B-Via Payroll Transfer.

This box stores the percentage of excess earned time to transfer to the accrual type.

The total percentage amount for transfer 1 and transfer 2 must equal 100%.

This box stores a user-defined code that ties two accruals together for a combined limit.

The program uses this two-digit code to group accruals with the same code when checking limits. All accruals with the same multilimit code must have the same Option selected on the Limit tab and the same limits on the accrual tables. The program forces some limits for a group of accruals, rather than individually. Munis Workflow users can set up e-mail notification for when an employee reaches a certain threshold of accrual time available.

This list defines a loan-payback accrual type for the active accrual, as applicable.

This field is necessary only if you have configured the accrual programs to accommodate the loaning and payback of accrual time.

Transfer on Zero Balance This check box, if selected, indicates that time accrued by an employee is paid toward the loan only after the employee has used all available time and brought their balance to zero. If the check box is not selected, time accrued by an employee is paid toward the loan as it is earned, regardless of the employee's balance.

END OF YEAR:

Use the End of Year tab to define what the program does with accrual balances at the end of the year. For

Example if the accrual is, “use it or lose it” the option would be to zero balance. If there is no enforcement, it may be carry forward

C-Carry Forward – The employee’s balance is carried forward to the next year.

D-Double Transfer Balance – The employee’s balance is double transferred to other accrual types.

E-Dbl Trans Based on Target Bal – The employee’s balance is double transferred to other accrual types. The accrual table for the first transfer is based on balance and the amount for the second transfer is based on the limit on that first transfer-to table.

F-Factor Excess – Part of the employee’s balance is carried forward to the next year.

L-Lapse Excess – The employee’s excess balance (over the limit) is deleted.

P-Transfer Percentage Earned – A percentage of the employee’s balance is transferred to other accrual types.

S-Transfer Balance – The employee’s balance is transferred to other accrual types.

T-Transfer Over Limit – The employee’s excess balance (over the limit) is transferred to other accrual types.

This list identifies the table to which the accrual balance is transferred when the balance is to be transferred to the same accrual type, but a different accrual table. Any balance at the end of the year is carried forward to the balance for the employee on the new accrual table (as long as the start date of the accrual record that has a balance is prior to the accrual effective date specified when running the Accruals End of Year

Processing program). If there is no balance, the accrual record is replaced with a new one and given a zero balance. An example of using this option is for employees who in the year they are hired earn a day each month. After the first of the new year, they are automatically given 10 days.

This box defines the percentage to carry forward at the end of the year. This option only applies when the value of the Option list is F-Factor Access.

This box defines the maximum number of hours that can be transferred during a transfer over limit process. Use this box only if you have selected option T - Transfer

Over Limit from the Option list.

Leave the field blank to set to no limit.

These boxes indicate the projected month and day for the end of the year.

Options Tab:

Use the Options tab to define the units of measure for earned time, the way in which employees earn accruals.

For example if the accruals are front loaded either at the start of the year or before the payroll, the typical option would be from a table via batch. If the accruals are earn as you go there are multiple options for time worked within payroll. We also define the accrual information employees can view when using Employee Self

Service.

01-From Time Worked Within Payroll – Employees earn accruals based on the number of hours worked within payroll. For every hour (or day) they work, they earn a portion of accrual time.

02-Whole Units Within Payroll – Employees earn accruals based on the number of hours worked within payroll in whole units. The program does not calculate decimals.

03-All or None Within Payroll – Employees earn accruals based on a range of hours they work. For example, if employees work 20-40 hours, they earn one hour of accrual time.

04-By Increment Within Payroll – Employees earn accruals based on a block of time after they have worked a specific time increment. For example, employees might earn a block of eight hours only after they work 200 hours.

05-All or None Within Payroll By Percent – Employees earn accruals based on a percentage of hours they work.

add a job class to the accrual record, the value of the Job Based Accruals label for the

General category of the Payroll Control Settings program must be Y-Yes.

Identifies the accrual type code to associate with the employee record. Accrual type codes must exist in the Payroll Miscellaneous Codes program for the code type ACCR - Accrual

Types.

Specifies the accrual table against which the employee's time is calculated. The table must exist in the Accrual Tables program. If you are updating a record, you should not randomly change the value of this list as it affects programs throughout Munis Payroll.

If selected, directs the program to send an e-mail alert if the available balance falls below the accrual threshold when Employee Update is performed.

If selected, indicates the accrual is currently active.

Specifies the date for calculating accrual service time. This determines the length of service for awarding earned accrual time during the employee update process. The default value for this date is the service date in the Employee Master program; however, if the value of the service date is changed in Employee Master, the change does not affect the accrual date in this program. Once it is established, the accrual date is only maintained using this program.

If you leave the Accr Date box blank, the program uses the date the permanent date from

Employee Master as the default date; if the permanent date is not completed, the program uses the hire date.

Defines the start date for the accrual. If you are adding an accrual manually, the default value for the start date is the current date, but you can change this. However, the start date cannot be a date earlier than the default value.

Notes: If you add an accrual record with a start date that is greater than the first day of

the payroll period, the Employee Update program will encounter an error. The start date cannot be a date greater than the first day of the payroll period.

You can only update the start date for a new employee accrual record (that is, an employee accrual record with no history besides the start-of-year history record) or if the accrual table is being changed. When you modify a start date, the program does not allow you to enter a start date that overlaps with any existing associated employee accrual history data. The program does allow a start date on the same day as an existing history end date.

Provides the end date for the accrual. The default value for the end date is 12/31/9999, but you can change this.

Whenever the earnings process attempts to calculate an earn rate, the program checks the value of this field. If the end date of the accrual takes place during the current payroll, the earn rate is automatically set to zero and accruals are not earned. Note: If an accrual earning is created within a payroll, and then the end date is set, the program does not prevent that earning from posting to the history.

Displays the default accrual limit, which is established in the Accrual Tables program. The accrual limit is the maximum amount of units that can be earned by an employee.

Specifies the actual limit or an amount that can override the amount in the Default Limit box. Limits are normally set in Accrual Tables program, but exceptions can be defined in this box.

Note: If there is an amount in the Default Limit box, the value in the Actual Limit box

should be zero.

Provides the employee’s start-of-year (SOY) balance. It should be manually updated only when the record is created. From that point forward, the system automatically updates the balance when the Accruals Year End Processing program is run.

Pay Master Set Up:

There are two options for maintaining the accruals to record absence:

Use the Employee Accrual History. This would be used outside of payroll to record accrual activity.

 Use the Pay Master to create pay codes to record absences during payroll processing.

Numbering Range:

Based on the system recommendations, typically the range for accruals is between 300 and 599. While this is not a system requirement, it is best practice.

For accrual Pay codes you will typically use the Category 3 Category

 3-Absence/Accrual: Accrual pay

The most common Calc Code for accrual pay codes is 90

Typically this field is left blank as the rate/ amount will pull from the employee base salary record.

This box provides the multiplication factor for this pay type, which is related to the dollar amount that is attached to the pay type in the employee pay records. If dollar amounts are tracked with accrual usage, that is, the employee has both number of hours and a pay amount for the accrual pay, the value of this box should be 1.0. If only hours are tracked with accrual usage, the value of this box should be 0. With a factor of 0, the pay amount is always 0.

The default value is 1.0, but you can change this (for example, base pay = 1.0, overtime pay = 1.5, or double-time pay=2). If your organization uses stipends (calc code 73), this factor may be used to set the maximum amount of stipend that an employee may receive.

You can enter a negative value in this box. If you enter a negative amount, the Time

Entry program produces a negative pay amount.

This box provides the multiplication factor for compensatory pay types only. When the Comp Earned Factor check box is selected in the Accrual Tables program, the earn rate found by using the employee's service months is ignored and the earn rate is drawn from this box. Time Entry and Payroll Earnings and Deductions use the

Comp Factor value to compute comp time earnings.

Impact Accruals Tab

Accrual

Impact

This list identifies the Accrual Impact Code, which determines how one hour/day/week of this pay type affects the employee's accrual balance.

The impact values determine how one hour/day/week of this pay type affects the employee accrual balance. Only one impact value is allowed for a pay type. The available impact values are as follows:

No Impact

Add

Subtract & Add

Subtract Only

Comp Time Earned

For each accrual, select the impact value from the list.

Examples:

If you accrue each payroll (Accrual Method 1-For Base Earnings Types), select Add for vacation, sick, and/or other accruals if these accrual balances should be added to for each base hour worked. The factor used in the computation is entered in the Accruals Tables.

The overtime earnings type usually does not add to accrual balances, so select No

Impact for each accrual type. When Overtime pay is processed, it will therefore not affect Vacation, Sick, and other balances.

29

For the vacation pay type, you could select Subtract & Add beside the vacation accrual so that when vacation pay is processed it subtracts automatically from the vacation balance and adds to it (adding at the employee rate, but subtracting on an hour-for-hour basis).

 If accrual amounts are figured monthly or annually (Accrual Method 10), rather than hourly, and vary by group code or length of service, use the accrual tables located within Accruals Tables to set up the rates at which this benefit time is accrued.

If you accrue comp time for an accrual, select Comp Time Earned for the pay type that is set up to collect comp time. Only one Comp Time Earned impact value is allowed for a specific pay type.

Defines the earning methods for the accruals. Select 01- Earn from time

worked within payroll for comp time. Because Comp is typically earned during payroll and not posted as a batch the most common methods are listed below:

Earning Method ‘01’ - Earn from time worked within payroll: This code would be chosen if your employees “earn as they go”- for every hour (or day) they work, they accumulate a portion of accrual time.

Earning Method ‘02’ - Earn whole units within payroll: This method is similar to the 01 in that employees earn a portion of accrual time for each hour/day of work. However, with an Earning Method 02, only whole units will be earned in the payroll.

Earning Method ‘03’ - Earn all or none within payroll: This method is used when an employee accrues time based solely on the number of hours they work, as opposed to the number of months that they’ve been employed. The Accrual Table should be set up to earn zero hours ‘From’ 0 ‘To’ 999. The ‘Limit’ amount will be considered and handled according to the ‘Limit Type’. An additional, ‘All or Nothing

Accruals’ table is set up by choosing Ctrl T from the Earning Method field. This table will establish the ‘hours worked’ criteria.

Selection of this box directs the program to process accruals using oldest time first based on history year.

This date identifies the date the program uses to calculate the year field on the accrual history records. The Accrual Payroll Buyout, Accrual Payroll

Compensatory Buyout, Accrual Update, Generate Earnings and Deductions, and Payroll Earnings and Deduction programs use this date when processing accruals to determine the year to assign to time used.

The Employee Accruals program uses this date to calculate the Remaining

Hours (or Days, based on previous selections) that the employee earns. If accrual earnings are based on hours worked within the payroll then this amount would be what portion of one hour the employee would earn for every hour the employee worked during the pay period. If the earnings are posted via batch then this amount would be how much time the employee earns each time the batch is posted (each time the Accrual Update program is processed).

For comp time, The Amount should be the amount of time the employee should earn for each hour/day entered in the payroll under the comp time earned pay code. This amount must be greater than zero. If the

Amount is 1.5 and 6 hours is entered on the comp time earned pay code

in the payroll, then the accrual record will multiply 6 by 1.5 and write 9 hours for comp time earned in Employee Accruals.

Multiple tables may need to be set up to accommodate different scenarios. For example, some employees may earn at 1.0 while others earn at 1.5. This scenario can either be handled with multiple tables with a different Amount on each, or a single table with an Amount of 1.5, the

Generally, there are two separate comp time Pay codes. One is for earning comp time and one is for using comp time. These need to be set up in the Pay Master.

Comp Time Earned Pay code

The Category code should be “3- Absence/Accrual”, the Calc Code is usually ’90’ and the Factor is 0.00 (because the employees are not being paid for comp earned, it is solely for tracking their time). Subtract from Base

would not be checked.

Comp Earned

Impact Accruals Tab

Comp Time Earned

Select the Impact Accruals tab. The Impact for the Comp Time accrual type should be ‘Add’ or ‘Comp Time

Earned’. If ‘Comp Time Earned’ is used, the employee will earn at the rate defined in the Comp Factor field on the Main tab of the Pay Master instead of the rate defined from the Accrual Table, as long as the Comp Earned

Factor option is check marked on the Options tab of the Accrual Table.

38

Comp Time Used Pay code

The Category code should be “3- Absence/Accrual”, the Calc Code is usually ’90’ and the Factor is usually 1.00 because money amounts are usually associated with comp time that is being used. However, if money amounts are not associated with comp time used, the Factor would remain at 0.00. Subtract from Base is also populated at the site’s discretion; the field would be checked if you would like comp time used to be subtracted from the base pay code. Otherwise, leave unchecked.

Impact Accruals Tab

Select the Impact Accruals tab. The Impact for the Comp Time accrual should be ‘Subtract only’. Both of these pay codes would then be attached to the Employee in the Employee Job Salary

These boxes contain the anniversary date range to which the accrual updates should apply. You can enter the month/day/year (MMDDYYYY), month/day (MMDD) or day only (DD), according to the Date Format option.

For earning method 09, the program only processes those employees with an accrual date that falls within the defined anniversary dates. If example, if this range is defined as 0601 to

0630, the program selects only those employees with an accrual date that falls in the month of June.

For earning method 09 and the Month/Day option, the anniversary date range is defined with just a day range to process employees who earn accrual time every month, but only on their anniversary day. In this setup, the program should be run before each payroll and that the payroll date range is used.

For example, if an employee's hire date is August 15 and the next payroll is 8/10 to 8/16, the values of these boxes would be
