We have completely redesigned the processing of absences
relevant to statutory sick pay (SSP) and statutory maternity pay
(SMP). This affects payroll procedures, the data on the personal
calendar cluster and the SSP/SMP infotypes.
The changes are as follows:
1. The name of infotype 0085 has
changed from SSP PIW Record GB to:
SSP SSP(1)L Form Data GB
The names of the other three SSP/SMP infotypes have not
SSP Control GB
SSP/SMP Exclusions GB
SMP Record GB
2. Changes to the four SSP/SMP
infotypes can now only be made by the user. These infotypes are NOT
updated during absence processing, as was the case in previous
releases. As a result, many of the fields in these infotypes are
now redundant and will remain empty. We intend to delete these
fields for later releases.
3. The program "SSP/SMP Absence
Processing" has been deleted. We have incorporated the processing
of SSP/SMP absences into function GNAB within the payroll driver.
Function GNAB now stores the data either in the personal calendar
on cluster PC, or in the payroll results on cluster RG. No data is
written to the SSP/SMP infotypes in this release.
4. We have added a dynamic measure to
the SSP/SMP infotypes and also to the model SSP/SMP subtypes on the
absence infotype. This measure sets the personal calendar date and
retrocalculation date on P0003 to take a whole linked absence into
account, not just one single absence.
5. Subschema GT00 now contains two
new lines. The first of these comes immediately after function PAB,
and serves to export the absence calendar to cluster PC.
The second line contains the new function GFMSA. The extra line
directly follows personnel calculation rule G052 in the
Function GFMSA populates table MSA on the RG cluster. This is a new
table containing information from the results table (RT) and the
absences table (AB).
You need to run the data conversion report (RPUABPG0). For more
information, see release note PA_PAY_GB_40A_PCCONV.
Change system parameters in customizing
If you want to use customized SSP/SMP absence subtypes, you need
to copy the new dynamic measure for setting the personal calendar
and retrocalculation dates on P0003. This measure is delivered with
the model SSP and SMP absence subtypes on the absence infotype, as
well as with the SSP/SMP control infotypes.
You must add the two new lines in subschema GT00 to any existing
customer copy of this subschema.
The personal calendar display report (RPCLPCG0)now shows full
details of the individual days of an absence.
