Reports on RDS – Document Direct • PRS 6211 – Employees Approaching Leave Accrual/Service Award Threshold This report provides a list of employees approaching the month in which the leave code rate will be increased and or the month in which employees will be eligible for a service award. Employees are listed two (2) months prior to reaching their respective milestone, leave code change and/or service award. PURPOSE Intended for use by HR offices of organizations to monitor names of individuals on the list for any discrepancies in the service months prior to reaching the new threshold. The report is divided in two categories:
Reports on RDS – Document Direct • PRS 6211 – Employees Approaching Leave Accrual/Service Award Threshold Category 1 – Employees Approaching Leave Accrual Thresholds This category only reflects employees approaching the leave accrual threshold based on the sum of the values in the Prior Service Months and Current Service Months columns. Category 2 – Employees Approaching Service Award Thresholds This category only reflects employees who have reached the maximum vacation accrual level and are no longer eligible for an increase in the leave code rate, but continue eligibility to receive a service award/recognition every five (5) years thereafter.
Reports on RDS – Document Direct • PRS 6231 – Employees Leave Accrual Code Changes – Monitoring Changes • This report provides a list of employees whose leave code has changed from the previous month* due to: • Achieving the months required for a change in leave code with a higher earning rate • Change in personnel program where the employee’s accumulated service months invokes a higher or lower earning rate • Accumulated months do not qualify for leave code that may have been manually entered *System generated leave code changes occur during the monthly maintenance process.
Monitoring Vacation Accrual Maximum • Vacation policy maximum is two (2) times an employee’s annual accrual rate, i.e., 10 hrs x 12 months = 120 hours x 2 = 240 hours • Employee balances should be within the maximum* provided by PPSM and labor agreements • Employees should be notified in writing at least sixty (60) days prior to reaching their maximum so vacation can be scheduled and balance reduced to remain within the stated policy maximum. • PPSM and labor contracts have “exception” provisions that allow an additional 3 to 4 month “grace period” in which to take vacation in the event vacation was requested by the employee and cannot be taken due to departmental operational needs. • PPS (Personnel Payroll System) includes the appropriate “grace period” for each employee group and will calculate vacation accruals that can cause a balance greater that the stated policy maximum. *The maximum hours displayed on the IHRS screen in EDB is the grace period max NOT the policy max. Vacation balances should be monitored for compliance with 2 x annual accrual.
Updating Employment Service Credit Months on EDB • For new hires and rehires with prior service with other UC campuses and State of California and the service has been confirmed, the EPD2 screen must be updated to include the additional service months. • The confirmation form may indicate years and months, i.e., 5 years and 8 months. • Convert the years to months by multiplying the number of years by 12 and then add the remaining months, i.e., 5 x 12 = 60 + 8 = 68 • Enter 68 months in the Prior Svc Months field, press enter and then F9 to update. The comments should reference the former employer/campus name the dates of employment, and the name of the person who confirmed the prior service.
Updating Employment Service Credit Months on EDB • Go to the IHRS screen to verify the update. • The new data will be on the history screens on the following day • If the additional months are equivalent to an increased accrual code rate retroactively, adjustments must be process manually. • The leave code will change during monthly maintenance. • Review the PRS6231 to verify the changes
Updating Employment Service Credit Months on EDB When correcting months of service accumulated at UCLA • Enter the new total months in the Empl Svc Months field • Enter the new date in the Empl Svc Cred From Date field • Press enter and then F9 to update.
