Overview

A DRM (Data Requirement Message) is used to notify a user about missing data, data requirements, or data boundaries. 

 

In the case of accruals, when entering time entry data for an employee whose work site address has accrual usage restrictions, a DRM may generate to remind the time entry admin when data requirements may affect the employee's use of accrued time.  

 

Note: Accruals are automatically set up for hosted clients. Self-hosted clients must submit a ticket request to Avionté Technical Services to activate accruals.

 

 

 

Best Practice

This accrual functionality has been added to accommodate changes in accrual compliance. Avionté recommends replacing existing accrual functionality with the latest available functionality. This includes replacing existing DRMs with new DRMs. New accrual plans will continue to be maintained, while old plans will not.

 

 

 

Accrual DRM Types

Available Minimum Days DRMs

These Data Requirement Messages generate when an employee's requested accrued hours are affected by a location's 'minimum work days' condition.

 

As an example, an employee may accrue sick leave hours as soon as they start working for an employer, however the employer's location may prohibit the use of those hours until a minimum number of days have been worked. If an employee has worked 81 days in a location where the minimum days worked is 90, a DRM will generate when a payroll admin attempts to enter sick leave hours into an employee's payroll. 

Note: If the Avionté system is set up to track time on a WEEKLY basis, the system will assume that FIVE days will be earned per entry.

DRM Description
tbv_SickLeaveDaysWorked_MINDAYS_GEOCODE Tracks the minimum number of days the employee must work before claiming accrued sick days based on the geocode of the employee's work site address. 
tbv_SickLeaveDaysWorked_MINDAYS_NYCity Tracks the minimum number of days the employee must work before claiming accrued sick days if the employee's work site address is in New York City.  
tbv_SickLeaveDaysWorked_MINDAYS_STATE_CITY Tracks the minimum number of days the employee must work before claiming accrued sick days according to the employee's work site address' state and city. 

 

 

 

Available Hours DRMs

These Data Requirement Messages generate when an employee's requested accrued hours are affected by a location's 'maximum number of hours an employee may use in a year' condition.

 

As an example, the city of Minneapolis allows an employee to only use 48 sick hours per year despite the amount of hours an employee may have accrued. If an employee has used 46 hours of sick leave and a payroll admin enters 4 hours into an employee's time entry batch, a DRM will generate notifying the admin that the amount of annual usable hours has been surpassed.

 

Note: If the Avionté system is set up to track time on a WEEKLY basis, the system will assume that FIVE days will be earned per entry.

DRM Description
tbv_SickLeaveHoursUsed_HOURS_GEOCODE Tracks the number of accrued hours used compared to the number of accrued hours available based on the geocode of the employee's work site address. 
tbv_SickLeaveHoursUsed_HOURS_NYCity Tracks the number of accrued hours used compared to the number of accrued hours available if the employee works in New York City.  
tbv_SickLeaveHoursUsed_HOURS_STATE_CITY Tracks the number of accrued hours used compared to the number of accrued hours available based on the employee's work site address' state and city.
