Reproducing the Issue

  1. Run the Period End Processing Calendar at the start of a year (i.e. 2015)
  2. Notice some employees may have a negative account balance
  3. The employee with negative leave balance as of (1st Dec 2015) will have a positive amount posted instead of negative


  • The business rule logic is incorrect
  • The Period End Process in the rule has to be changed
