 Pay Schedule


The Labor Distribution system assists University clients to manage personnel activity.  Upon running of the biweekly payroll, transactions are passed to the labor distribution system.  At times it may be necessary to reallocate payroll charges via retroactive Personnel Action Forms (PAFs), Requests for Cost Transfer and mass transfers.  These transactions are entered by the Controller's Office.  On a biweekly basis, labor distribution activity interfaces to the PeopleSoft general ledger.

Upon obtaining access to the labor distribution system, you can view salary and fringe benefits activity for departments and/or products (special purpose accounts, gift accounts, sponsored projects), which you administer. In addition to reviewing payments for an account and/or an individual, you can determine if retroactive adjustments have been processed and perform 'what if' analyses.
