2679409 - Compensation - How to handle EC Compensation eligibility rules exceptions


For STI you set up the Business Rules to exclude all employees who were in Leave of Absence for the entire year.

For example, a few weeks before launching forms, you are informed one employee who was on "Leave of Absence" for the entire year must be included for a specific reason (legal, political…).

This is the kind of exception we are looking at, a case by case adjustment of employees (let’s say less than 100 or 200 max).

Option #1 (Leading Practice)

Include these exceptions one by one in the Business Rule tied to your compensation template

Pros: Easily editable by Comp admin / Consistency: all eligibility situations are maintained in one screen

Cons: Regional Comp Leaders need to provide the list of exceptions to Comp admin

Option #2

Add new custom fields in the Compensation portlet of Employee Central to capture exceptions

Pros: Can be maintained by Regional Comp Leader or HRs or Managers (instead of only Comp admin in option #1) / No need for the Comp admin to change the Business Rules.

Cons: More custom fields in Employee Central / The fields need to be mass updated the following year if exceptions have changed.
