Check for pay rate, percent effort, and account distribution changes during the certification period. Account percentage calculations are based on Units, a salaried employee’s full-time equivalent (FTE) percentage. For hourly employees, the Units are hours worked.
If an employee’s pay does not change during the six-month reporting period, percentages computed for an account are straight forward.
However, if the employee’s pay and/or account distribution change during the certification period, then the Units calculation effectively becomes a weighted average of each month in the certification period. When aggregated for the certification document’s account percentages, this will not match a simple distribution.
