On the evening of April 6th, a change will go into place in BPP (Screen 51) and on Canopy EPAs to no longer allow retroactive iterations with a date prior to 12/1/2016. This is needed to ensure accurate data for the WorkDay conversion and to avoid problems with paying employees due to referencing title codes that are no longer valid.
If you are using EPAs to document retroactive payroll changes, we recommend two options:
- You make these payroll corrections without the EPA process. The EPA process has always been for documentation only, it is not required.
- You can make the retroactive iteration effective on 12/1/2016. You will still be allowed to reference source lines from the 9/1/2016 to 11/30/2016 period. You can also note those changes in the comments.
