New Adjustment Wage Type for PFML

HRMS has been updated with a new Wage Type for Paid Family Medical Leave (PFML) to make adjustments to PFML wages and premium amounts: 

Wage Type Code

Wage Type Long Text

Wage Type Short Text

Description

 2027

PFML Taxable Wage Adj

NonCash

Wage type that can be used to adjust an employee’s PFML taxable wages and premium amounts

 

Wage Type 2027 adjustments should be made by creating a new Additional Payment (0015) infotype record in the current payroll period, and amounts should be entered as follows:

  • Positive Amount: Increase PFML taxable wages
  • Negative Amount: Reduce PFML taxable wages

Adjustments using wage type 2027 cannot exceed the current calendar year’s wages. If an employee requires adjustments above the current calendar year’s wages, this will require intervention from the HRMS team so please reach out to HeretoHelp@ofm.wa.gov with the details of your adjustment.

Delimited PFML Adjustment Wage Types

The creation of this new wage type replaces the prior PFML adjustment wage types within the Additional Payments (0015) infotype. As such, the following PFML adjustment wage types have been delimted and should no longer be used:

Wage Type Code

Wage Type Long Text

Wage Type Short Text

1487

EE PFML Family Adj

PFML ADJ

1499

EE PFML Medical Adj

PFML ADJ

14A0

ER PFML Medical Adj

PFML ADJ

 

Settlement Payments Not Subject to PFML

As indicated in the HRMS changes due to Wa Cares / LTSS (UPDATE) communication, If an employee receives a settlement which is not subject to state taxes or retirement, create an Additional Payment (0015) infotype record using wage type 2055 dated within the same period as the settlement payment for the full settlement amount.  Wage type 2055 will reduce the taxable wages paid in the settlement that are not subject to all state taxes and retirement amounts.
