2084205 - Manage Data - Incorrect Salary due to SALARY x COMPENSATION SAL RATE UNITS - Compensation


  • This article reviews why incorrectr Salaries may appear if the the interaction with Compensation Salary rates.


  • Compensation


  • It occurs that when an employee changes from part time to full time, it is often missed to make a vital change in employee import file comp data. Not making the needed change can result in the Employee's SALARY showing as a huge figure, often in the millions of dollars in the compensation form.


  • Make sure SALARY and COMPENSATION_SAL_RATE_UNITS fields are correct.

  • If the employee SALARY $50 (fulltime salary) x COMPENSATION_SAL_RATE_UNITS value of say 2080 then salary would be created as $104,000.
  • If the employee changed to Full time SALARY $104,000 (fulltime salary) x but they failed to correct the COMPENSATION_SAL_RATE_UNITS figure from 2080 to one as it would be for fulltime, the salary would be created as $21,362,000.
  • There are any number of variations between these 2 figures depending on how they factor SALARY x COMPENSATION_SAL_RATE_UNITS  but the net effect is to create incorrect SALARY figures when creating compensation form.
