    Note: To determine whether an account is active or not the system will check both the Account Status field AND the Pay Start and Stop Dates.

    1. Percent - indicates a percentage of gross to be charged to this account.

      • Restrictions on the use of the Fixed Option are as follows:
          • The purpose of the Fixed Option is to accommodate special funding where a set amount is to be charged to a particular account for a job.
          • Pay accounts for each job must total 100 percent. Therefore if a fixed rate is used, there must be at least one percentage rate record on file for the job totaling 100 percent. Failure to have a percentage rate record or records totaling 100 percent will result in the job not being included in the payroll. Users will receive a warning message in this case.
          • Active fixed rate accounts for a job will be charged first. Once the fixed amount is charged, the active percentage rate account or accounts are then charged based on the percentages assigned.
          • Benefits (sick, vacation, jury duty etc.) will not be charged to a fixed amount account.
