Designate Funding for Payroll Earnings Code Differently Than Regular Pay in HRS


This document shows how to designate funding for an employee's payroll earnings code when the funding is different than their regular earnings, deductions, and taxes for the current or future payroll period. For example, an employee's earnings code for Termination Pay, Overload, Overtime, or from a previous position may need to have a different funding source than their regular earnings.

Process Considerations:

  • Refer to KB Payroll Earnings Code Descriptions in HRS  for a list of applicable Earnings Codes
  • Special funding for payroll earnings codes must be entered by NOON of the day on the Final Calc day in order to take effect for the employee's current payroll period.
  • The ERNCD (earnings code) column on the Funding Data Entry page is normally blank, but used solely to designate funding for a payroll earnings code differently than regular pay for employees whose Pay Basis is not Lump. For employees whose Pay Basis is Lump (lump sum payment), the ERNCD column should always be blank, and this document is not applicable. If the funding for the employee's payroll earnings code is the same as their regular earnings no further action is necessary, and this document is not applicable. The ERNCD column on the Funding Data Entry page should remain blank.
