Performance Advance Requirements
A NYSCOPBA or Council 82 represented employee in a graded position whose base annual salary is below the job rate of his/her grade on the 04/01/02 Salary Schedule and who has 100 days of service in Fiscal Year 2003-2004 is eligible for an April 1, 2004 Performance Advance, payable 03/25/04(Administration) or 04/01/04 (Institution).
After the payroll processing for Pay Period 1L is completed, OSC will automatically process Performance Advances for eligible graded employees who are active or on a paid Leave of Absence (except Military Stipend) and who have Increment Codes 0010-0019. OSC will automatically process the FIS salary amount appearing on the Job Data Compensation page for employees with Increment Codes 0040-0049, 0050-0059, and 0008.
A row will automatically be inserted into the Job Data page with the effective date of 3/25/04 (Administration) and 4/1/04 (Institution) with the Action/Reason of Pay Rt Chg/PAV (Pay Rate Change/Performance Advance).
OSC will insert a row on the Additional Pay page effective 3/25/04 (Administration) and 4/1/04 (Institution) to automatically increase Pre-Shift Briefing amounts in accordance with the above payments.
Pre-Shift Briefing rows for $24 or $48 will not be updated.
Automatic Update of Increment Codes
After the Performance Advances are processed in Pay Period 1L, OSC will automatically update increment codes, as appropriate, on the Job Data record using the Action/Reason of Data Chg/CIC (Data Change/Correct Increment Code).
|Agency Actions in Pay Period 1||
The following procedures must be used by
the Agency when reporting transactions in Pay Period 1L:
|Agency Actions Beginning Pay Period 2||
Beginning in Payroll Period 2L, Agencies
must submit the appropriate pay change effective on the date of the return to
the payroll for all eligible employees who returned from a Leave of Absence
without Pay (except Workers' Compensation Leave) or Paid Leave of Absence with a
Reason of MLS (Military Stipend).
The Agency must submit the appropriate Pay or Position Changes for eligible employees identified on the Control D reports.
After Pay Period 1 is processed, a listing will be sent to Agencies to identify employees who will be entitled to receive the 10, 15, or 20 year Longevity Payment during the Fiscal Year 2004-2005. These employees will be identified with an Increment Code of 00X4 (X being any number and 4 being the year in which the longevity is due). The Agency is responsible for submitting these Longevity Payments as they become due using the Action/Reason codes of PAY/LGP (Pay/Longevity).
|Control D Reports||
The following report will be available
after processing of Pay Period 25 is completed (03/17/04 Administration,
03/24/04 Institution). The report identifies employees who will not receive an
automatic Performance Advance based on available information at the close of Pay
Period 25. This will give Agencies time to correct the employees' records if
necessary, before automatic processing takes place. (Employees who reach 100
days in Pay Period 26 will be processed automatically.)
