Payroll Policy and Procedure Manual
Section 1000: Other Payroll Expenses (OPE)
Effective: 01/01/2001
Revised: 08/17/2011

  • When labor charges are re-distributed, OPE will follow the transaction at the current month rates. If an OPE rate has changed between the initial payment and the redistribution, some tiny OPE amounts may be left on the old labor.
  • OPE related to Non-cash earnings such as earn code FAN (non-cash awards) can be redistributed by redistributing the amount of that particular earn code.   As an example, the labor distribution form should specify only the earn code (FAN in this example) and should also indicate that the redistribution applies only to the month(s) and year for which the employee received the non-cash award.
