Does the Benefits Module Support Negative Earnings

You may have setup your HR Benefits Codes in Vista to charge your employees using an earnings code set up as a negative factor instead of using deduction or liability codes.

If this is the case, you will not be able to use the Benefits module in HR Management. This module was designed to handle amounts set up on the Deduction / Liabilities tab in HR Benefit Codes in Vista.

If you still want to use the Benefits module, you must convert your negative earnings codes to deduction and liabilities.
Tip: This process may take a while time to complete. Be sure to plan this conversion process well before open enrollment. It is recommended to do this at the beginning of the year and before any payroll has been processed as this may affect Forms W-2 as well as 401k matching. You will not be able to start implementation of the Benefits module until this process is completed.
