Entering an Unpaid Leave of Absence

PayServ Manual


The purpose of this task is to record an employee's unpaid leave of absence in the Payroll System.

Helpful Hints

  • If the transaction is retroactive and the employee is overpaid, the agency must enter comments stating how the overpayment will be recovered. It may be necessary to set up an overpayment using a Q code on the Additional Pay page to recover the overpayment from any future monies due the employee. Enter a General Comment with the needed information on the overpayment.
  • Except for Q’s, an unpaid leave of absence transaction automatically ends all additional pay earnings, adding an end date to the last row of the Additional Pay page.
