Salary Planning – Employees on Leaves of Absence • Employee may be eligible for 9/1 salary increase, at 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 • Employees on a continuous LTD (Long Term Disability ) leave are NOT eligible for a 9/1 • By 9/10/12, enter any manual increase for an employee on leave • By 9/14/12, urgently advise DLS if you entered manual increase after 9/10/12 • After 9/14/12 don’t even attempt it - call DLS first Important Warning:Processing an increase retroactively to the 9/15/12 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 not recommend • If you proceed , your local team will be responsible for calculating, pursuing, and clearing any overpayment/underpayment that may occur • Advise DLS email hotline immediately of any retroactive increases: firstname.lastname@example.org
Salary Planning – Bargaining Unit Employees Review Prior to 9/1/12 • Bargaining Unit Salary Increases • The 9/1/12 range adjustment for SEIU bargaining unit employees in ranges A08 to A80, including employees on leave of absence, will be loaded in PeopleSoft as of 8/31/12 • Adds a new job data record row with an effective date of 9/1/12 • Displays Action of “Pay Rate Change,” reason of “Range Adjustment” Complete 9/5 – 9/17/12 • Employees in ranges A08 to A80 who also require a step increase • Set the effective sequence to 1 (or the next numeric sequence) when using the same effective date of 9/1/2012 for the step increases • Employees in grades A00 and A99 • Process a manual Employment Update web form using a Pay Rate Change > Range Adjustment, because there are no step amounts in the salary grade table in PeopleSoft HRMS
Salary Planning – Bargaining Unit Employees Helpful Tip When bargaining unit employees receive a 9/1 step increase in addition to the standard range adjustment • Please review 9/1/12 – 9/15/12 timecards to ensure the correct step is indicated for all worked shifts. • Supervisor or TLA: update timecards to correctly reflect each shift worked at the correct step level Example: Joe receives a 9/1 step increase to step 15, with upload completed on 9/6/12. • Joe enters punches into his timecard daily • For 9/1 through 9/5, his timecard Step field will default at Step 14 • Starting on 9/6, it will default at Step 15 • The supervisor or TLA will need to manually change the 14s to 15s in order for appropriate pay rate to be received for shifts worked from 9/1 – 9/5
How Data Drives Benefits Help us enhance the employee’s benefits experience!

Timeliness • New Hires/Rehires Timelinesson entering new hires allows employees to elect their benefits within the 31 day window • PeopleSoft entries may be completed up to two pay periods before Benefits Eligible Date • Both Home and Mailing addresses must be entered for all benefits eligible positions • Terminations Cobra packets are sent out approximately 2 weeks after terminations are processed in PeopleSoft • Submit Termination Webform to Payroll (as soon as you know) • SLAC transfers must be terminated from Stanford and rehired at SLAC
Permanent Address (Home) • Drives eligibility for health plan • Need to live in zip code area for an HMO • Drives what the employee “sees” in the enrollment system • If the address is out-of-state, the employee will only see the Blue Shield plans • J1 Visa Employees • For most J1 visa employees the home address will be a foreign address • Submit a “Ben Bin” HelpSU ticket for zip code assistance (override will be done by benefits)
Address Updates • Employees may update their addresses in stanfordyou.stanford.edu • In StanfordYou an employee’s “Permanent address” = Home Address • Update Permanent and Mailing address fields • Medical/Life and Retirement plan communications go to Mailing Address • HR Administrator may update employees in PeopleSoft • Update both Home and Mailing address fields • If home address is missing, the employee will not be able to elect benefits • Complete all address updates by 9/1/12 to ensure a smooth Open Enrollment

Last Reminders New Earn codes effective 9/1/12 • PPO – PTO Payout • Use this code on Termination Webforms to indicate the amount of PTO hours that are to be paid out to the employee on their final check • RTD – Retro Differential • Use this code on Supplemental Pay/Off-Cycle Check Webforms when paying a rate differential to an hourly employee (BU1, NXH, STU, TMP, CSL) to pay the difference between the hourly rate they were paid and their new rate • Example: An employee was given a step increase from $18/hour to $20/hour retroactive to 7/16/12. Pay the $2/hour differential using earn code RTD for the total number of hours paid at the old hourly rate • Hours paid using this code are not accrual eligible as the employee has already accrued based upon the original payment of the hours • Continue to use RTO for retroactive overtime payments and corrections of overtime differentials • Continue to use RTS for salary differential payments (EX1 and NX1)
