Re: December 2 Payroll Posting Enhancement


Further to the November 21, 2023, memo regarding the planned system outage, part of the system and application maintenance will include a technical back-end update to the payroll posting program. This enhancement is primarily a technical change and should have minimal impact on business processes.

The payroll program update will be implemented on December 2.

In preparation for this implementation, highlighted below are a few minor changes that users may notice moving forward:

  1. Payroll reserves for Teaching Assistants (TAs) will now include a more accurate calculation for stat holiday pay.
  2. The benefit levy for Postdoctoral Fellows (PDFs) will now be posted as a 61-series payroll document and included in the Payroll Distribution report.
  3. Payroll master data entries that have both a Cost Center AND Internal Order entered will only be posted to the Internal Order (Cost Center will be ignored). ** Departments are encouraged to update any payroll entries at their earliest convenience
  4. For Ancillary Operations only – monthly payroll postings will now be more accurately allocated to the appropriate Business Area (BA). Payroll related postings that previously included ‘blank’ business area, will now include the relevant business area.

View additional information and details about these changes.

If you have any questions related to the above changes, please submit a support ticket to the Enterprise Service Centre.
