We have 26 biweekly pay periods with 2 periods where we do not take voluntary deductions. The first payroll period for 2017 runs from 12/17/2016 to 12/30/2016 but pays on 1/6/2017. The issue is since the period ends 12/30/2016, the correct rates for benefits changes 1/1 will not be picked up in this payroll. Has anyone else run into this issue?
I cannot use 27 periods because the pay date falls in the following year and we use the when paid method.
