Biweekly Basics
 A biweekly pay cycle consists of 10 working days (2 weeks),
Sunday through Saturday
 Paychecks are issued on the second Wednesday after the pay
period ends
 Employees receive pay every 2 weeks, on every other
Wednesday. Note that pay is every other week, NOT twice a
(calendar) month.
 Actual pay dates will vary month to month
 Most months will have 2 paydays, but some will have 3
3
Biweekly paycheck deductions
 Percent-based deductions will be deducted from every
paycheck
 Examples: Taxes, retirement contributions, etc.
 Flat-dollar deductions will be split across 2 biweekly paychecks
 Examples: Insurance premiums, parking, etc.
 For months with 3 pay cycles, the 3rd paycheck (paid the
following month) will have NO flat-dollar deductions (but will
still contain percent-based deductions)
 This paycheck is referred to as a “benefit holiday”
 In 2013 there will be 2 benefit holiday paychecks:
 April 10 and September 11
 Refer to 2013 Biweekly Pay Calendar

 POSITIVE time reporting
 Time reporting will be done in hours
 For purposes of overtime calculation,
workweek is Sunday through Saturday
(no longer Monday through Sunday)
 Paper timecards – will need to enter time
via PPS IDTC
 KRONOS electronic timekeeping system

15
Biweekly Time Reporting Process
 Biweekly Payroll Cycle Names: “B1” and “B2”
 B1 + B2 = “quadriweekly” cycle
 Payroll windows are 2-3 working days after pay period end
 Generally opens Monday (Tuesday, if Monday is holiday)
 Closes on Wednesday
 Manual reporting (paper timecards) through PPS IDTC
 KRONOS will upload to PPS on Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m.
 This allows the afternoon for making corrections to file
 LX transactions generally available through Thursday 5:00 p.m.
 First Biweekly Pay Window starts Monday, February 4
 For biweekly pay period of January 20 – February 2
16

Biweekly
Timecard “Back”
Summary SAMPLE
•Multiply quadriweekly hours
by vacation and sick leave
factors to calculate leave
accruals:
•Example “B” vacation accrual:
40 hours/week x 2 weeks =
80 per biweekly cycle
•80 hours/biweekly x 2 cycles =
160 quadriweekly hours
•160 x 0.069231 = 11.076960
•Truncate to 11.07
•Report leave usage during
“B2” payroll window
23
Biweekly Timekeeping - KRONOS
 Non-exempt Career on KRONOS will begin to be paid from an
upload directly from their approved KRONOS timecards
 Students and Limiteds on KRONOS are already paid in this manner
 So pay will be based on what’s reported on KRONOS timecard
 Overtime will be included
 Time is simply reported as “time worked” and KRONOS will
calculate overtime per work rules based on the appropriate union
contact
24
Monthly Timekeeping
 Both Timecards and KRONOS – same as before
 Exempts only
 Leave taken to be recorded in full days
25
Paid Leave (Vacation & Sick)
 Transition from table to factor accrual
 Table: Earn vacation and sick leave in full hours
 Factor: Earn vacation and sick based on a multiplier
 Will apply to all Staff, both biweekly non-exempt and monthly
exempt employees (does not apply to Academic appts)
 Biweekly non-exempt
 Accrual based on hours of pay status during quadriweekly cycle (“B1”
+“B2” biweekly cycles)
 Monthly exempt
 Accrual based on hours of pay status during calendar month
 Working hours of calendar month vary, so leave accrual will also vary
each month
 Total accrual over calendar year is the same for table & factor methods
26
Reporting Paid Leave
 Leave taken by biweekly employees will be reported once
every quadriweekly cycle (using “B2” cycle) via IDTC, or
through KRONOS upload
 Leave taken by monthly employees will be reported once a
month using PYLV roster, or through KRONOS upload
 PYLV roster is available for now, but will be discontinued
 Anticipated discontinuation when KRONOS is fully rolled out to
campus
 Stay tuned for future notices
27
Leave Accrual – Biweekly
 Accruals are credited on the first day of the following quadriweekly-cycle
 The next “B1” cycle following a “B1 + B2” quadriweekly cycle
 How to live with 6-decimal accruals (for timecards)
 Use full factor to calculate accrual
 Sick leave accrual rate of .046154
 160 x .046154 = 7.384640
 Then truncate (don’t round) the result to 2 decimal places
 7.384640 = 7.38 on paper timecard

 Sick leave accrual rate of .046154
 0.046154 x 176-hour month = 8.123104
 Then truncate (don’t round) the result to 2 decimal places

PPS EDB Conversion
 Central system processing will convert non-exempt employees
to biweekly cycle, so…
 Department entry will not be needed, except for clean-up and
some special case edits afterwards
 Non-exempt “MO” & “MA” appointments will be converted
 New appointments and distributions will be created with:
 Rate code: H (Hourly)
 Pay Schedule code: BW (Biweekly)
 Time Reporting code: Z (Positive time reporting)
 Data Warehouse Report
 EZ Access -> Employee -> Biweekly One-Time Conversion Review
 http://wh.isc.ucsb.edu/

 Set up as a fixed biweekly flat amount in separate appointment
 Will have “B” (By Agreement) Rate code
 As opposed to “A” for Annual or “H” for Hourly rate
40
IAPP By Agreement Example (SDG)
41
PPS EDB Conversion
 System processing scheduled for mid-January, 2013
 Additional system processing to slightly round up some hourly
rates (about 1¢)
