Now you have completed the actions to setup the payroll codes needed, you can move on to setting up the Definitions and Schemes within the Occupational Sickness Module.
You will need to navigate to Home > Occupational Sick. Here you will see the Module Definitions menus.
Firstly, you will need to setup the Module Definitions section.
Consider Current Pay Period – this will need to be ticked if you wanted absences in the current period to be considered as part of the calculations. If you leave this untick, the system will assume you will only want to use historical absences that have not yet been processed through Occupational Sickness.
Consider Up To Date – if you want the system to process occupational sickness payments and deductions up until a certain date of the month, then you can set this here. If this is set to 0 or 31, the system will assume to go up until the end of the month and process all absence dates.
Consider The Previous X Periods – this option, when set, will force the system to refer back the number of months listed and look for historical absences that have not yet been processed.
Salaried Deductions/Payments Against – here you will pick up the codes that have been created in the previous help page. Once these two options are set again the Deduction and Payment codes respectively, the Occupational Sickness module will be switched on. In order to turn it off, you can set these back to blank.
Default Pay Element – in the following steps, you will be shown how to setup the Occupational Sickness Schemes. This option will allow you to setup the Occ Sick entitlements for one payroll code (i.e. SAL) and to use the same progression for all pay elements, with “Replace” set on the Controls.
Also Calculate SSP – this option will need to be ticked ON, if you wish SSP to be processed at the same time as OSP.
