Salary Planning for Employees on Leaves of Absence
O P E R AT I O N S & S Y S T E M S
Employees may be eligible for a 9/1 salary increase, at the department’s discretion
Applies to full-time and part-time basis leaves, disability or FMLA
Can affect timecard, pay, and benefits – crucial to get it right and in on time
 By 9/9/13, enter any manual increase for an employee on leave
 By 9/13/13, urgently advise DLS if you entered a manual increase after 9/9/13
 After 9/13/13 please don’t even attempt it - call DLS first
Employees on a continuous LTD (Long Term Disability ) leave are NOT eligible for a 9/1 increase
Important Warning: Processing an increase retroactively to the 9/15/13 pay period after that pay
period has already closed, will impact salary continuation payments and may cause an overpayment
or underpayment – so this is strongly discouraged
 If you proceed, your local team will be responsible for calculating, pursuing, and clearing any
overpayment or underpayment that may occur
 Advise DLS email hotline immediately of any retroactive increases: [email protected]

Salary Planning – Bargaining Unit Employees
O P E R AT I O N S & S Y S T E M S
Helpful Tip
When bargaining unit employees receive a 9/1 step increase in addition to the standard range
 Please review 9/1/13 to 9/15/13 timecards to ensure the correct step is indicated for all worked shifts.
 Supervisor or TLA: update timecards by 9/16 to correctly reflect each shift worked at the correct step
Joe receives a 9/1 step increase to step 15, with upload completed on 9/6/13.
 Joe enters punches into his timecard daily
 For 9/1 through 9/5, his timecard Step field will default to Step 14
 Starting on 9/6, it will default to Step 15
 The supervisor or TLA will need to manually change the Step 14s to Step 15s in order for the
appropriate pay rate to be received for shifts worked from 9/1 through 9/5
Salary Planning Corrections
 Review the outcome of the Salary Planning upload for your school or unit as soon as it completes
 Submit a HelpSU ticket for any corrections by 9/13/13, for example:
O P E R AT I O N S & S Y S T E M S
 Transactions that need to be entered into PeopleSoft with an effective date prior to 9/1/13,
after a 9/1/13 salary row has already been created
 Corrections to, or deletions of, 9/1/13 salary increases that have already been uploaded via
the Salary Planning module or already entered manually by the local unit
