Paid Family and Medical Leave and Program Funding Configuration

In 2002, California became the first state to pass Paid Family Medical Leave legislation; in the resulting years other states followed. Initially, there was only one new state every few years. However, in the last few years, states introduced and passed legislation for Paid Family Medical Leave more frequently.

Making the changes every time to our system was a difficult process for our customers and us. Our team brainstormed, consulted with the PNA focus group, and decided the best long-term approach is to introduce a configurable framework that allows Oracle to build rules for each new state that enacts legislation for Paid Family and Medical Leave and Long-Term Care programs.

The result of that effort is our Program Funding Configuration, which dynamically updates pages based on configuration and calculates the employer and employee portion of the contribution based on rules. PeopleSoft will deliver data scripts to update the tax tables and rules. We no longer need to deliver massive online and batch changes every time a state enacts a new program.

What an experience attending Quest Blueprint 4D as my first in-person conference since 2019. Honestly, I had nerves right before, but in the end, I was happy I chose to present in person. We have adapted well to video conferencing tools, but I miss the personable interactions. The energy felt in a room also can’t be experienced without being there in person. When presenting to the audience, their expressions helped me know if what I was talking about was well received. I especially loved seeing the smiles and excitement when demoing Payroll for North America roadmap items.

Beginning January 1, 2023, the PeopleSoft FSCM, HCM, and Campus Solutions applications will adopt a delivery schedule of 3 Images per year instead of 4.  

Payroll for North America will deliver 4 tax updates per year instead of 5. Tax updates will continue to be included with the PeopleSoft HCM Images except for the end-of-the-year tax update, which is delivered using a PRP. 

Did you know that Release 9.2 PeopleSoft Update Images released on PeopleTools 8.59 can automate the downloading of PeopleSoft Release Patchset (PRP)?

In HCM 9.2 Image 43, Payroll for North America introduced the new feature Quick Calculation.  I highly recommend customers look at this feature as an easy added value for your payroll department. Quick Calculation allows the administrator to select an employee to calculate and see the paycheck results directly on the payline.  There is no longer a need to wait for the entire pay calculation process to complete in order to check on one employee calculation.
