Known Issue: The FICA exemption integration from myWSU to Workday caused some students to be incorrectly marked as non-exempt for the first FLSA sub-period of the first pay cycle of the fall. If a student should be exempt from FICA, we will move non-student hours to student hours or work-study to correct this.
Estimated Time to Resolution: Before next payday on 9/24/2021 » More …
Known Issue: If you use the “Results View from Journal Lines” tab in the Pay section of an employee’s profile, you will receive an error when trying to run the report. We’re removing this tab while we work on a long-term solution.
Salary and benefit obligations are calculated based on specific rates for different employee types. We just loaded FY22 rates into Workday, and these obligations are now updated based on the new rates.
Known Issue: As reported previously, Retro Period information was removed from several reports due to security concerns. A new process called constrained proxy restores access to this information.
Estimated Time to Resolution: Resolved.
Details: Constrained proxy is a new Workday feature that allows you to run specific Workday reports as another person. Because you’re using the other person’s security roles, you’ll see additional data in those reports, including the Payroll Results Line details that include the Retro Period information that was removed due to security concerns. Learn more about constrained proxy and which reports are available here.
Summer Qualified Tuition Reduction (QTR) for students will post with the August 10 paycheck.
Employees will see this listed on their payslips as a contribution made on their behalf. Departments will see the charge hit their budgets on August 10 as well as in their Budget to Actuals or grant reports.
Known Issue: Units have been completing payroll accounting adjustments to ensure that hourly employees with different funding sources in Workday are being paid from the right funding source. Going forward, units should refer to this documentation to decide on the best course of action for them.
Recently, the Washington State Office of Financial Management (OFM) updated their policies regarding employee cellular device allowances and hardware. WSU has updated BPPM 85.45 and 55.70 in order to comply with the new OFM guidelines, and have created new cell phone allowance agreements in Workday. These updates will impact employees who currently receive cell phone allowance or hardware.
If you receive a cell phone allowance and are impacted by this change, you will be contacted by your department administrative personnel with more information, and to complete next steps.
