You must set up the specific payroll definitions for Occupational Sick before you can use it.
To set up the definitions:
- Select Payroll > Module Definitions. The Parameter Controls window is displayed.
- Select the Sickness tab.
- In Automated Sick Pay – Valid Absence Codes, type the absence codes you use when you record sickness absence entries for employees. Separate each code with a space. You can create absence codes on the Absence Type window in Personnel > Absence Monitoring > Absence Type.
- Under Occupational Sick Pay, in End Day Number OR Period End (0), type 0 or the day in the month after which the system assumes the employees return to work. If you type a day number, such as 20, the system pays employees full pay from the 21st. The day you specify is typically the payroll cut-off date. If you type 0, the system assumes employees are off sick until the end of the pay period (on a monthly template, the end of the month) and pays them the sickness pay to which they are entitled. If you leave this field blank, the default is 0.
- Click OK to save your changes.
