Occupational Sickness – Allowances

The following are some guidelines of what to consider when ensuring that the Occupational Sickness module makes the necessary adjustments for non Basic Pay elements such as a fixed value allowance.

Defining the Allowance

General TAB
Type of Code: Automatic
Payment/Deduction: Payment

Controls TAB
Occupation Sick – Method: Replace
React to Critical Date: No, Working, Calendar etc.,

Calculation TAB
Calculation Type: Default Value
Operator: Multiply
Value: 1

Defaults TAB
Defaults – Value: Set as the “standard” value if they are largely the same. This is optional.

When you attach the Allowance to the Fixed Payments/Deductions section please note that the value from the Allowance definition “Defaults – Value” is defaulted as the “Defaults – Value” of the Fixed Payment/Deduction. If the employee in question has a different value of the allowance, then it can be entered on the Fixed/Payment Deduction definition. This means that you can have one Allowance Payment/Deduction, but employees can have different values of the same allowance. The following should be noted however. If the value is the same as the standard value described on the Payment/Deduction then you should really blank out the value on the Fixed Payment/Deduction, but you can only do so after it has initially been saved. If this value is left empty, then the system will seek to get the value from the Payment/Deduction definition. This has the benefit of enabling the user, a year or so down the line, to change the default value on the Payment/Deduction definition and because there are no values on the Fixed Payment/Deduction definition, the new value will be applied instead. If, however there is a specific value on the Fixed Payment/Deductions definition, then the value on the Payment/Deduction definition will not be referred to.
