Create Additional Pay eDoc

Update coming soon.

The Create Additional Pay eDoc is used to process additional pay for an active employee. Examples include, academic overloads, temporary pay, reward and recognition payments, supplemental pay, academic administrative supplements, and allowances.

Additional Pay is pay outside of the regular wages or base salary pay for an employee. Bi-weekly paid employees performing services for another department should be processed as an hourly HIRE with a bona-fide hourly rate of pay based upon the services provided.

Create Additional Pay eDoc Process

  • In One.IU navigate to the eDocs page in the HRMS Portal, click on Create Additional Pay.
  • The Create Additional Pay eDoc is made up of two major sections: Additional Pay and Additional Pay Earning.

Additional Pay Reason

  • Effective Date:  The Additional Pay Effective Date should be in most cases, the first day of the pay period in which the additional pay is to take effect.  For staff monthly employees, the additional pay should begin on the first of the month.  For bi-weekly paid employees the additional pay should begin on the first day of the bi-weekly pay period in which the additional pay is to take effect.

Additional Pay effective dates are restricted by Job Data effective-dated boundaries, so you may not always be able to follow the above guidelines.  Always try to set the effective date as early in the pay period as possible. When processing an Additional Pay for Temporary Pay, the Effective Date and Earnings End Date should reflect the true dates of the period for which the additional duties are being performed.   An adjustment voucher may be processed for over payments.

Payroll calendars can be found at:

  • Earn Code and Additonal Pay Reason: The type of Additional Pay being paid to the employee is defined by Earn Code. eDoc logic evaluates the position type of the employee being paid the Additional Pay and presents only the valid Earn Code options displayed in the dropdown boxIn our example, we have chosen Allowance.  Once the Earn Code has been chosen, eDoc logic will then pull forward the Additional Pay Reason field and will present the Additional Pay Reason options for that Earn Code.

Additional Pay Position: eDoc logic defaults the position of the employee being paid the Additional Pay and displays the department of that position.  If the Additional Pay is being paid to the employee for work performed in a different department, you may use the position number lookup to choose a generic Additional Pay position, as follows:

  • Additional Pay: Acad Services (Salary Plan AP)
  • Additional Pay: Staff Services (Salary Plan APS)

Select the appropriate position from the two above based on the work to be performed.

Additional Pay: To complete the Additional Pay section of the eDoc, enter to following information:

  • Earnings End Date – This is the effective date that the Additional pay will end.
  • Total Amount – This is the total amount of the Additional Pay.
  • Pay Per Period - This is the total amount of the Additional Pay divided by the number of Pay Periods that are included between the Effective Date and the Earnings End Date. 
  • Begin Date and End Date – these fields are not required and are merely available for eDoc initiators use as additional information.  Example – Use the date fields, to denote the date range of a project performed by an employee on an Additional Pay type of Bonus, where the bonus was approved many months after the project was completed.  Then additional information regarding these dates can be added in the Notes and Attachment section of the eDoc.

Note - Additional Pay for Temporary Pay:  Temporary Pay is based on a percentage of the employee’s salary, so the Total Amount and Pay Per Period fields are not needed for this calculation.  Therefore, they do not appear on the eDoc

Additional Pay Earning

  • Earning: The Earn Code displayed reflects the Additional Pay that was selected above. A Voucher code is chosen from the department’s available codes.  The code selected is the code from which the Additional Pay is paid.
  • Accounting Line(s): Enter the appropriate accounting information; note the account number is required, but you may also choose to complete some of the other fields to account for the Additional Pay cost (Sub Account e.g.).  Finally, enter the appropriate percentage for this account. Percent is required and if multiple accounting lines are used for the funding, they must equal 100%.
