PY - Workflow for Additional Pay Approver Maintenance Page

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

This KB will walk through the process of setting up Level 2 - 5 approvers on the workflow approver maintenance page. Level 1 approvers are determined by the exception process or T/L approvers (and backup) on the TL Security page and/or Reports To on Job Data.

PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS:
  • Best Match - Level 2-5 approvers will be assigned based upon the employee's empl ID and empl record number. The system will look for a matching configured sub- department, if none is found then it will look for a matching department, then division and finally match to business unit.
  • For current and retro dated Add'l Pay entries the system will use current approvers.
  • For future dated Add'l Pay entries the system will check for future dated approvers and use them if appropriate.
  • If approvers are changed after an Add'l Pay has been submitted, regardless of the effective date, the approvers will not be updated on the Add'l Pay transaction.



PROCEDURE STEPS:
