Holiday Coding on SPAHRS Timesheets

Governor Phil Bryant has amended the 2016 holiday proclamation for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.  The holiday table in SPAHRS has been updated to conform to the newly issued proclamation.The Christmas holiday will be observed Monday, December 26, 2016; further observance of Christmas will be Friday, December 23, 2016.  New Year’s Day will be observed Monday, January 2, 2017.

If your timesheets for December have already been created, they will need to be purged and recreated.

MAGIC System Maintenance - 12/12/2016

MAGIC and SPAHRS will be unavailable for users beginning at 4:00 PM on Monday, December 12, 2016. MAGIC maintenance will occur during this time so SPAHRS must also be down.  Both systems should be available the next morning on December 13, 2016.  The nightly payment processing will occur on December 12, 2016.

Update from MSPB - FLSA Overtime Rule Injunction - Posted 11/29/2016

Several states, including Mississippi through the Office of the Governor, filed suit against the U.S. Department of Labor to challenge the overtime rule change scheduled to go into effect on December 1, 2016.  As a result of the lawsuit, the U.S. District Court on November 22nd issued a preliminary injunction which has stopped the rule from going into effect at this time.  Whether the rule change may have to be implemented at a later date will depend upon the final ruling in the lawsuit.

If you have already made changes to the exempt status of your employees in preparation to comply with the scheduled December 1st implementation, MSPB staff will be happy to assist you in processing necessary corrections to those changes.  Requested corrections must be in accordance with current, applicable laws and regulations. If [MSPB] can be of assistance to your agency, please contact your assigned HCCP consultant.

Floating Holiday Balances

If an employee terminates and has a floating holiday balance, it cannot be paid with the separation payment unless the employee’s PIN was certified for CALBK.  Also, this same edit has been applied should your agency desire to buyout any floating holidays.  Previously, SPAHRS has allowed floating holidays to be paid upon termination but has recently been re-programmed, since it has been discovered this should not be done unless it is specified in the agency’s appropriation.
