Collective agreements often contain rules stating that absences
are to be remunerated using an average from past months. In the
following steps, you set the rules required. To carry out valuation
by the principle of averages, you must first decide the
How many periods are to be used to calculate the average
Can a period be irrelevant to mean value analysis? (e.g. if an
employee has unpaid leave for the entire period).
What is the maximum number of periods to be used to calculate
averages in such cases?
What types of absence are to trigger average pay?
What does the form for the calculation of averages values look
Which values should be calculated for the new employees in the
first month, if no historical value for the calculation of an
average value is available?
Should an average value be adjusted when pay is changed (e.g.
after a standard pay increase)?
Which wage types are included in an average value?
Three sample entries are delivered:
These entries can be found in client 000. Other entries are also
planned for further functions in HR.
Amounts and hours are collected from 3 previous periods for
calculation rule 1. In the final processing, the average value is
calculated by dividing the amount by the hours. All of the periods
The calculation is extended to 6 previous periods in
calculation rule 2.
The same data is used in calculation rule 10 as in rule 1. This
calculation rule is accessed with specification A, in
processing class 15 which is part of the
ruleSpecial processing for the valuation
of wage types. This specification leads to a special
processing in this rule. A check is run to see whether the absence
started in the previous period or whether it extends into the
following period. In this case the average value already calculated
is used from the previous period, or the average value which is
calculated in the period is stored in the results table in order to
be used in the following period.
Familiarise yourself with the overview about the possibilities
of how to create the pay scale rules in the system. Please refer to
a description of individual and essential steps in the following
You can edit this part either according to wage types or as a
whole. When editing each infotype separately please perform all
steps until adjusting each wage type in the payroll procedure. The
adjustment should occur altogether.
You can create the personnel rules and the rules (calculation,
cumulation, adjustment) for all wage types in all chapters if you
process all data at the same time.
