Assign Deductions and Liabilities to a Craft Class
You can assign deductions and liabilities to a craft class using the Dedns/Liabs tab in PR Craft Classes.
Deductions and liabilities set up here override those set up at the craft level; therefore, you will only need to set up deduction and liability rates here if you are overriding the existing rate(s). If you want to exclude a specific rate from calculations, set it up here with a 0.00 amount.
You can assign a deduction (including pre-tax) or liability to multiple crafts/classes or craft/class templates; however, if the deduction or liability is using a Rate per Day calculation method and an employee works on more than one craft/class for the same day, the system will calculate the deduction or liability for each craft/class/template.
The following instructions detail how to assign deductions and liabilities to a craft class.
- In PR Craft Classes, select the craft class for which to set up deductions and liabilities.
- Select the Dedns/Liabs tab.
- In the DL
Code field, enter the deduction/liability code that is required
for this class or press F4 to select from a list of
valid codes. Note: Liabilities that will be included in the capped basis for a craft must also be set up on the Dedns/Liabs tab in PR Crafts, PR Craft Classes, PR Craft Template, PR Craft Class Templates, or PR Employee Dedns/Liabs; otherwise, the system will not include them in basis calculations. For more information, see Setting Capped Codes and Limits.
- If the calculation method is V (variable), in the Factor field, enter the earnings factor that applies to this class. For all other calculation methods, the factor is set to 0.000000 and cannot be changed. In the Old Rate field, enter the old rate for the deduction or liability code. The system will use this rate for timecards entered prior to the Effective Date specified in PR Crafts or PR Craft Template. In the New Rate field, enter the new rate for the deduction or liability code. The system will use this rate for timecards entered on or after the Effective Date specified in PR Crafts or PR Craft Template. Save the record.
