As previously communicated, select earnings codes will be deactivated in 2020. To ensure all 2020 compensation is paid accurately, use the new, more-specific codes, beginning Monday, December 16, 2019, for biweekly or Thursday, December 19, 2019, for monthly. The new codes will ensure appropriate retirement and tax treatment of 2020 earnings and will prepare for the conversion to Workday in the summer of 2020.
More details, including the list of new additional pay earnings codes, other additional pay changes and information about updating existing entries are now available. Read more in the full article.
